The Blackest Crow

lyrics

As time draws near my dearest dear when you and I must part
How little you know of the grief and woe in my poor aching heart
It's what I suffer for your sake believe me dear it's true
I wish that you were staying here or I was going with you

I wish my breast were made of glass wherein you might behold
Upon my heart your name lies wrote in letters made of gold
In letters made of gold my love, believe me when I say
You are the one that I will adore until my dying day

The blackest crow that ever flew would surely turn to white
If ever I prove false to you bright day will turn to night
Bright day will turn to night my love, the elements will mourn
If ever I prove false to you the seas will rage and burn

And when you're on some distant shore, Think of your absent friend,
And when the wind blows high and clear, your voice to me, pray send.
And when the wind blows high and clear, please send it on those skies,
The best of friends must oft times part and now it's you and I.
