about

Traditional song from the USA, that Sophie picked up from Bruce Molsky

lyrics

As time draws near, my dearest dear, that you and I must part
What little you know of the grace and awe of my poor aching heart
Each night I suffer for your sake, you're the one that I hold dear
I wish that I was going with you or you were staying here

I wish my heart was made of glass wherein you might behold  
There your name I wrote my dear in letters made of gold
Oh there your name I wrote my dear believe me when I say
You are the one I love the best until my dying day

The blackest crow that ever flew would surely turn to white
If ever I prove false to you, the day would turn to night
Bright day would 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 a line to me, please send
And when the wind blows high and clear, please send a note to me
That I might know by your handwrite how time has gone with thee
