Lady Margret Song Lyrics

 
Cassie Franklin
Cold Mountain Soundtrack - Movie, 2003
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Lady Margret Lady Margret was standing in her own room door

A comb in her long yellow hair



When who did she spy but sweet William and his bride

As to the churchyard they drew near

The day passed away and the night coming on

Most of the men were asleep

Lady Margret appeared all dressed in white

Standing at his bed feet

She said "How do you like your bed? And how do you like your sheet?

And how do you like your fair, young bride that's laying in your arms asleep?"

He said "Very well do I like my bed. Much better do I like my sheet.

But most of all that fair, young girl standing at my bed feet."

Then once he kissed her lily white hand

And twice he kissed her cheek

Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips then he fell into her arms asleep.

The night passed away and the day came on

Into the morning light

Sweet William said "I'm troubled in my head by the dreams that I dreamed last night.

Such dreams, such dreams as these I know they mean no good.

For I dreamed that my bower was full of red swine and my bride's bed full of blood."

He asked "Is Lady Margret in her room? Or is she out in the hall?"

But Lady Margret lay in a cold, black coffin with her face turned to the wall.

Throw back, throw back those snow white robe

Be they ever so fine.

And let me kiss those cold corpsy lips for I know they'll never kiss mine.

Then once he kissed her lily white hand

And twice he kissed her cheek

Three times he kissed her cold corpsy lips then he fell into her arms asleep.
