Lyrics

Black is the color
of my true love’s hair.
Her lips are like
some roses fair.
She’s the sweetest smile
and the strongest hands.
I love the ground
whereon she stands.

I love my love
and well she knows.
I will follow
where’ere she goes.
If she on earth
no more would stay
my life would simply
fade away.

I go to the Sewa
and mourn and weep,
for satisfied
I ne’er can be.
I’ll write her a letter
with these few lines,
and suffer death
ten thousand times

Black is the color
of my true love’s hair.
Her eyes are something
wondrous fair.
I wish the day
it soon would come
when she and I
will live as one.
