Ribbon of Darkness  Gordon Lightfoot

Top of the charts in '66.
[D]Ribbon of darkness over [A]me,
Since my true [A]love walked out the [D]door.
Tears I [D7]never had be[G]fore.
[D]Ribbon of [A]darkness over [D]me.

[D]Clouds a-atherin' o'er my head,
That kill the day and hide the sun.
That shroud the night when day is done,
Ribbon of darkness over me.
[Em]Rain is [A7]falling on the [D]meadow,
[Em]Where once my [A7]love and I did [D]lie.
[Em]Now she is [A7]gone from the [D]meadow,
[Em]My [A7]love [Em7]good[A7]bye[D].

[D]Ribbon of darkness over me,
Where once the world was young as spring.
Where flowers did bloom and birds did sing,
Ribbon of darkness over me.

[Em]Here in [A7]this cold room [D]lyin',
[Em]Don't want to [A7]see no one but [D]you.
[Em]Lord I [A7]wish I could be [D]dyin',
[Em]To [A7]for[Em7]get [A7]you[D].

[D]Oh how I wish your heart could see,
How mine just aches and breaks all day.
Come on home and take away,
This ribbon of darkness over me.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
