lyrics

My countenance
Will not unfrown itself
Now that my man
Has gone and drowned himself
We were bound to be married in the Spring
Love is a long gone and lonesome thing

And now my smile
Will not reveal itself
And my ire
Will not conceal itself
And the sad songs are the only songs I sing
Love is a long gone and lonesome thing

Every man I've taken to
has been taken by the sea
Or taken by the sound
Of the felling of a tree
I was wrong to think that love was meant for me
Love is a long gone and lonesome thing

And now the days
Just go on and on
I pray
But all hope is gone
We were bound to be married in the Spring
Love is a long gone and lonesome thing
