lyrics

Black is the Color

Black is the Color of my true loves hair
Her lips are like some roses fair
The sweetest smile and the gentlest hands
I love the ground whereon she stands

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground whereon she goes
I hope the day it soon will come
When she and I will be as one

But now I go to the Clyde and I mourn and weep
For satisfied I can never be
I'll write her a letter just a few short lines
I'll suffer death a thousand times

For black is the color of my true love's hair
Her lips are like some roses fair
The sweetest smile and the gentlest hands
I love the ground whereon she stands
Yes I love the ground whereon she stands.
