lyrics

WAS A LADY IN THE HOLLER
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH HER FATHER’S KILLER
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

HE LOVED HER WELL A YEAR AND A DAY
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
‘TILL HER SWELLIN’ BELLY DID HER BETRAY
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

SHE LEANED HER BACK AGAINST A THORN
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
AND THERE SHE HAD TWO LITTLE BABES BORN
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

TWO RED SILK RIBBONS IN HER CURLS
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
SHE TOOK TO SMOTHER THOSE NEWBORN GIRLS
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

SHE BURIED THEM INSIDE THE EARTH
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
ONE SHALLOW GRAVE SHE DUG IN THE DIRT
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

AND AS SHE MADE HER WAY BACK HOME
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
SHE SAW TWO PRETTY GIRLS A’PLAYIN’ ALL ALONE
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

MY SWEET YOUNG THINGS, IF YOU WERE MINE
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
I’D DRESS YOU UP IN SILKS SO FINE
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

MOTHER DEAR, WHEN WE WE DID LIVE
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
BUT TWO SILK RIBBONS DID YOU GIVE
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

MY DAUGHTERS LOOK WITH HEAVEN’S EYE
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
SEE WHAT DEATH NOW I MUST DIE
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

SEVEN YEARS A FISH IN THE FLOOD
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
SEVEN YEARS A BIRD IN THE WOOD
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

SEVEN YEARS YOUR TONGUE TO THE WARNING BELL
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
ETERNITY IN THE FLAMES OF HELL
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

WELCOME, WELCOME FISH IN THE FLOOD
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
WELCOME, WELCOME BIRD IN THE WOOD
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE

WELCOME, WELCOME WARNING BELL
O BARREN RIVER, O MOUNTAIN HIGH
BUT SPARE ME, LORD, FROM THE FLAMES OF HELL
DOWN BY THE GREENWOOD SIDE
