Bluehorses - Barbara Allen lyrics

In Scarlet Town, Scarlet Town
There was a fair maid dwelling
In scarlet town, the boys all cry
Blackheart Barbara Allen
In Scarlet town, Scarlet town
Young Jimmy Grove lay dyin'
In Scarlet Town the boys all die
For the love of Barbara Allen

He sent his man to find her
In the town where she was dwellin'
Haste away to comfort him
Oh lovely Barbara Allen
Slowly slowly she came up
So slowly came beside him
And all she said when she got there
"Young man - I think you're dying"

In Scarlet Town, Scarlet Town
There was a fair maid dwelling
In scarlet town, the boys all cry
Blackheart Barbara Allen
In Scarlet town, Scarlet town
Young Jimmy Grove lay dyin'
In Scarlet Town the boys all die
For the love of Barbara Allen

He turned his face to where she stood
With deadly sorrow sighin'
Lovely maid come pity me
I'm on me death bed lyin'
As she was walking o'r the hill
She saw the corpse a coming
With scornful eyes she looked on him
Her cheeks with laughter swelling

Now he is dead and in his grave
Her heart is filled with sorrow
Oh mother, mother, make my bed
For I shall die tomorrow
Farewell she said, you virgins all
And shun the fault I fell in
And here take warning of the fall
Of cruel Barbara Allen

In Scarlet Town, Scarlet Town
There was a fair maid dwelling
In scarlet town, the boys all cry
Blackheart Barbara Allen
In Scarlet town, Scarlet town
Young Jimmy Grove lay dyin'
In Scarlet Town the boys all die
For the love of Barbara Allen
