lyrics to The Unquiet Grave (Child No. 78) / Joan Baez
The Unquiet Grave (Child No. 78)
(revised version sung by Joan Baez)
Cold blows the wind to my true love,
And gently drops the rain.
I've never had but one true love,
And in green-wood 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.
And when twelve months and a day was passed,
The ghost did rise and speak,
