about

A traditional Scottish folk song about loss and longing.

lyrics

Black is the colour of my true love's hair Her lips are like a rose so fair She has the sweetest face and the gentlest hands I love the ground whereon she stands

I go to the Clyde and mourn and weep For satisfied I n'er can be I write her a letter, just a few short lines And suffer death a thousand times

I love my love and well she knows I love the ground where on she goes I know the day it soon will come When she and I will be as one

Black is the colour of my true love's hair Her lips are like a rose so fair She has the sweetest face and the gentlest hands I love the ground where on she stands
