The Scarlet Tide
Alison Krauss Lyrics


Will, I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place
I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice
When he wants every thing

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of day
Why would I want him just to lose him again

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

This woman has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard. When I go to heaven, this is the voice I want to hear.

Susan Smith

I agree with the music critic who wrote the following "And yes. Alison Krauss could sing a duet with a chainsaw, and she would still win a Grammy. She's that good." He voice is the gift we can all cherish.

Primera vez que la escucho, en una película, canta con el alma!

Oh god, I love this song! I even like the cello part, it’s totally f***ing gorgeous.

Hauntingly beautiful. It invokes the pain of mans' bad decisions that draw them into war and the heartache of the women left behind to suffer his fate. Love and loss. Inman made it all the way back to his woman only to be killed by a skip tracer.
