Remember oh my darling when
My sweetest heart met you
My face did shine with laughing lines
You wound up on a spool

But no satchel sewn could hold the hearts
Of youth that needed proof
Love so tender, fools forever
Lord we broke in two

Cause when you danced all night without me
I heard the shotgun wedding bell
It let me go, to the sorrow
But the maiden heart still loves you

I left town, got lost and found
Down a southern darkened lane
I was a broken down blue sparrow
Big fists that led the way

Was bruises on my pretty face
Big words just could not say
It was the beating in my own heart
That got me to today

A migrant bird whispered one night
Some kind amazing grace
If I follow her to northern lights
I’ll find your sweet embrace

I was older oh my darling when
My sweetest heart saw you again
My face did shine with deeper lines
You wound up on a spool

With silver thread a satchel sewn
To keep our hearts and blooms
Our love still tender keeps forever
Made us one from two

Cause when you danced all night with me
I heard the sweetest wedding bell
Don’t let me go back to sorrow
Cause a maiden heart still loves you

Now we’re olden and dazing
A pocket and a posy
Love so tender, fools forever
Fallen down but rosy

Cause when you dance all night with me
I hear the sweetest wedding bell
Don’t let me go back to sorrow
Of a maiden heart still loves you
