Railroad Boy (鐵路男孩) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

She went upstairs to make her bed

 

And not one word to her mother said

 

Her mother she went upstairs too

 

Saying "Daughter oh daughter

 

What's troublin' you ":

 

"Oh mother dear I cannot tell

 

That railroad boy that I love so well

 

He courted me my life away

 

And now at home he will no longer stay "

 

"There is a place in yonder town

 

Where my love goes and he sits him down

 

And he takes that strange girl on his knee

 

And he tells to her what he won't tell me "

 

Her father he came home from work

 

Sayin' "Where is my daughter

 

She seems so hurt"

 

He went upstairs to give her hope

 

An' he found her hangin' by a rope

 

He took his knife and he cut her down

 

And on her bosom these words he found:

 

"Go dig my grave both wide and deep

 

Put a marble stone at my head and feet

 

And on my breast put a white snow dove

 

To warn the world that I died of love
