The Ghost Lover - Canadian Traditional/Folk Song Midi and Lyrics

The Ghost Lover
Canadian Traditional/Folk Song
Lyrics

Johnny, he promised to marry me
But I fear he's with some fair one and gone
There's something bewails a man, I don't know what it is
And I'm weary of lying alone.

Well, Johnny he came there at the appointed hour
He tapped on the window so low
This fair maid arose and she hurried on her clothes
And she bid her true love welcome home.

She took him by the hand and she lay him down
She felt he was as cold as the clay
She said, "My dearest dear, if I only had my wish
This long night would never turn to day."

Oh, crow up, oh crow up my little bird
But don't crow before it is day
And you'll keep your shielding made of the glittering gold
And your door of silver so gay.

And where is your soft bed of down, my love?
And where is your white hall and sheet?
And where is the fair maid who watches over you
As you lie in your long, dreamless sleep?

Oh, the sand is my soft bed of down, my love
And the sea is my white hall and sheet
The long, hungry worms they do feed off of me
As I lie every night in the deep.

"Oh, when shall I see you my love?" she cried
"Oh, when shall I see you again?"
"When little fishes fly and the seas they do run dry
And the hard rocks do melt with the sun."

"When little fishes fly and the seas they do run dry
And the hard rocks do melt with the sun."
