Bitter Green

print

On the bitter green she walked the hills above the town
Echo to her footsteps as soft as ider down
Waiting for her master to kiss away the tears
Waitin’ through the years

Bitter Green they called her walkin’ in the sun
Lovin’ everyone that she me
Bitter Green they called her waitin’ in the sun
Waitin’ for someone to take her home

Some say he was a sailor who died away at sea
Some say he was a prison’r who never was set free
Lost upon the ocean he died there in the mist
Dreamin’ of a kiss

But now that bitter green is gone the hills have turned to rust
There comes a weary stranger his tears fall in the dust
Knealin’ by the churchyard in the autumn mist
Deamin’ of a kiss
