lyrics

George Collins rode home one cold winter's night
George Collins rode home so fine
George Collins rode home one cold winter's night
Fallen sick and died

Mary was setting in yonder's town
Sewing her silks so fine
When she heard of George being dead
She lay her silks aside

She followed him up she followed him down
She followed him to his grave
Down on her bended knees she fell
She screamed, she cried, she prayed

Oh daughter oh daughter what makes you weep so
There's more young men than George
Oh mother oh mother George has got my heart
And now he's dead and gone

Set down the coffin push back the lid
Lay down the linens so fine
Oh may I kiss them pale clay lips
I'm sure they'll never kiss mine

Oh don't you see that lonesome dove
Sailing through the pines
She's mourning for the loss of her own true love
Just like I mourn for mine
