Hang Down Your Head
Tom Waits Lyrics


Hush, a wild violet, hush, a band of gold
Hush, you're in a story I heard somebody told
Tear the promise from my heart, tear my heart today
You have found another, oh baby, I must go away

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
Hang down your head tomorrow, hang down your head Marie

Hush, my love, the rain now, hush, my love was so true
Hush, my love, a train now, well, it takes me away from you

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
Hang down your head, hang down your head, hang down your head, Marie

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
And hang down your head, hang down your head, hang down your head, Marie

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
Hang down your head tomorrow, hang down your head Marie

Hush, my love, the rain now, hush, my love was so true
Hush, my love, a train now, well, it takes me away from you

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
Hang down your head, hang down your head, hang down your head, Marie

So hang down your head for sorrow, hang down your head for me
And hang down your head, hang down your head, hang down your head, Marie
