Ribbon of Darkness:Gordon lightfoot. Top of the charts in '66. CHORUS: D A Ribbon of darkness over me, A D Since my true love walked out the door. D7 G Tears I never had before. D A D Ribbon of darkness over me. #1. 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. BRIDGE: Em A7 D Rain is falling on the meadow, Em A7 D Where once my love and I did lie. Em A7 D Now she is gone from the meadow, Em A7 Em7 A7 D My love goodbye. #2. 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. #3. (Chorus #2) Em A7 D Here in this cold room lyin', Em A7 D Don't want to see no one but you. Em A7 D Lord I wish I could be dyin', Em A7 Em7 A7 D To forget you. CHORUS: #4. 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. CHORUS: A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
