Ribbon Of Darkness
Marty Robbins Lyrics


Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me

Clouds a-gatherin' 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
Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love goodbye

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

Here in this cold room lyin'
Don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dyin'
To forget you

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

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me
Clouds a-gatherin' 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
Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love goodbye
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
Here in this cold room lyin'
Don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dyin'
To forget you
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.

Ribbon of darkness over me
Since my true love walked out the door
Tears I never had before
Ribbon of darkness over me

Clouds a-gatherin' 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

Rain is falling on the meadow
Where once my love and I did lie
Now she is gone from the meadow
My love goodbye

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

Here in this cold room lyin'
Don't want to see no one but you
Lord I wish I could be dyin'
To forget you

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

This song was written by Gordon Lightfoot. That's Grady Martin playing lead guitar. With Marty's voice it made for an outstanding performance.

Jack Chambers

Who did the whistling ?? Classic.

Bobbie LaVanway

Loved this gentleman's voice. He is deeply missed, but remembered as now here thanks to people posting his music, and I say "Thank You" for doing so.

Jim Falkner

with out question one of the greatest singers that ever lived

Derek Emrie

Marty Robbins was the soundtrack for many an imaginary American southwest cowboy movies...I would play them in my mind every time my dad would play his records. What a fine voice he had. Thanks for posting!

Deborah Dyess

I get shivers down my back every time I hear him a greater singer than marty robbins I have yet to hear he is my favorite now then and always

William

What a great singer! Beautiful treatment of Gordie Lightfoots classic song

Charles Martin

The guy could act. The guy could sing (with an immediately recognizable great voice). Ribbon Of Darkness was Marty at his best. And...NOBODY could step into a gunfighter ballad like he could! He owned the wheelhouse.

Primrose Haran

Beautiful song from marty he was and still is the greatest singer ever just love him
