The Unquiet Grave
Siobhan Miller Lyrics

Cold blows the wind over my true love
Soft fall the drops of rain
I never had but one true love
In Greenwood he lies slain

I'll do as much for my true love
As any young girl may
I'll sit and mourn all on his grave
For twelve months and a day
Will twelve months and a day be enough?
The dead began to speak
"You said so weeping on my grave
And will not let me sleep"

'Tis I my love sits on your grave
And will not let you sleep
I crave one kiss of your clay cold lips
And that is all I seek

You crave one kiss of my clay cold lips
My breath smells earthy strong
And if you have one kiss for me
Your time will not belong

It was down yonder garden green
While where we used to walk
A fairest flower that e'er I spied
Has withered to a stalk

The stalk has withered dry my dear
So shall our love to keep
So make yourself content my love
Till death calls you awake

This is just the most beautiful version that`s out there. We are truly lucky to have such beautiful singers as Siobhan , Karine Polwart and Emily Smith.

You don't get better than Siobhan Miller......perfection !



Glida from Virginia

Got put onto her on an Edinburgh trip from the U.S. Stopped by Coda and found her in the cd rack. Best 10 pound purchase ever!


That look she gives him at 4:19 just as the song ends is just so beautiful. Gratitude, respect, and love all rolled into one. That's how to treat people you work with.
