Lyrics

She’s riding through the rye field
The sun is setting low
No bridle on the white mare
On the saddle hangs a rope

Ahead the crimson tree line
The horse knows where to go

Oh darkness comin’
Comin’ down
This I know
Oh darkness comin’
This I know
But please come slow

Around the tree she wraps it
Ties a double knot
One to hold her secret
And one to hold her up

Another tree is waiting
With a secret of its own

Oh darkness comin’
Comin’ down
This I know
Oh darkness comin’
This I know
Please come slow

As curtains fall on daylight
She wraps it round and ties it tight
Between a pair of oak trees
She dances on into the night

And anyone approaching might see her floating
In the dark

Oh darkness comin’
Comin’ down
This I know
Oh darkness comin’
This I know
Please come slow
