Darkness and Light  Yonder Mountain String Band

[A]There was a soldier, there was a lady, there was a[E] lover, who live in tow[A]n
[A]There was a battle, in that far country, to that dark[E] land was that old soldier boun[A]d
[A]He held his true love, he kissed her softly, said “Darlin’[E] fear not, I’ll come back arou[A]nd”
[A]From a rear window, the lover watching…watching as her t[E]ears fell to the grou[A]nd
[A]The nights grew cold, her heart grew lonely, al[E]ong the streets she would walk and she’d c[A]ry
[A]Her heart was tender, her thoughts went yonder, she’d gently kiss the rin[E]g she’d wear upon her fing[A]er
[D]Distance makes the heart grow [A]fonder
But [C]passion makes the fire b[A]right
[D]Loneliness and Con[A]fusion
[C]Dark[D]ness and [E]Light
[A]One night while dreamin’, she saw her true lo[E]ve, by the old rock he sat a-weep[A]in’
[A]His eyes were shinin’, his head turned skyward, asking “[E] God above, how could this [A]be?”
[A]She jumped up from her bed, her heart was pounding…she went out to[E] calm herself in the cool night a[A]ir
[A]She started roamin’, by the edge of town, while the lover watc[E]hed her go all alo[A]ne
[A]She soon grew weary, her body tired, by an old [E]rock wall she settled d[A]own
[A]Her lover approaching…approaching gently, lonely love was[E] his favorite hunting gro[A]und
[A]The very next morning, the lady rising, she felt conf[E]usion, like never befo[A]re
[A]She awoke in her own bed with a tender feeling thought she heard the sound o[E]f her sweet soldier aproach[A]in
[A]A knock came upon the door, she jumped up running, only to see a strange [E]soldier with medals a-shi[A]nin’
[A]He said “Sad lady…sad news I bring you…Your soldier died last n[E]ight while the bullets were flyi[A]n’
[A]“No, no, no, this can’t be…for just last evening, my soldier sang t[E]o me love’s true so[A]ng”
[A]Wracked with confusion, she fell a-weepin’, while the lover, from his wind[E]ow watched all alo[A]ng…
