Every Night When the Sun Goes In


Every night when the sun goes in (Repeat twice)
I hang down my head and mournful cry.

True love, don’t weep, true love, don’t mourn (Repeat twice)
True love, don’t weep nor mourn for me,
I’m going away to Marble town.

I wish to the Lord that train would come (Repeat twice)
To take me back where I come from. Refrain

It’s once my apron hung down low (Repeat twice)
He’d follow me through both sleet snd snow. Refrain

It’s now my apron’s to my chin (Repeat twice)
He’ll face my door and won’t come in. Refrain

I wish to the Lord my babe was born,
A-sitting upon his pappy’s knee,
And me, poor girl, was dead and gone,
And the green grass growing over me. Refrain
