about

Yet another dead woman rises from the grave. Don't they like it down there?

lyrics

The Unquiet Grave

Cold blows the wind o’er my true love
Cold blow the drops of rain
I never had but one true love
And in the green wood she lies slain
I’ll do as much for my true love
As any young man may
I’ll sit and weep down by her grave
For twelve months and one day

But when twelve months were come and gone
The dead girl she did speak
What makes you weep down by my grave
And will not let me sleep
One kiss of your clay-cold lips
One kiss is all I crave
One kiss of your clay-cold lips
And return back to your grave

My lips are cold as clay
My breath is earthy strong
If you kiss my clay-cold lips
Your days would not be long
Down in yonder garden green
Where we used to walk
The finest flower of them all
Is withered to a stalk
