lyrics

The sky was dark and the moon hung low
Cold enough to shake your bones
I sat amongst the fireside
From here I heard my baby cry

Soldier pines they towered above
And shuddered like some demon shrub
The only sound to cross my mind
Was the howling as the wolves took flight

I looked for her till I lost myself
My throat grew dry from the wishing well

I ventured forward, hands as eyes
To brush out webs and choking vines
With a head so light and heart so low
I felt that I was losing hope

Why would she have gone away
She must have walked and lost her place
I hoped her feet would guide her here
I'd hold her close, expose my fears

I came upon a torn up rag
Tied around a tree to help keep track
A cotton trail brought me home
My baby'd come and left a note

It said "Bill, I love you so much more
My eyes have opened, my heart is torn
I've seen you there with those girls
I've given myself to the gates of pearls"
