lyrics:  

I looked into the eyes of my one and only love
And I said, "Lover, where have you been?"
She said, "I've been to the fields where the men don't heal
To find my only kin."
To find my only kin.

I looked into the eyes of my one and only love
I said, "Lover, what did you find?
She said, "I found my brother lyin' there, the cold wind blowin' through his hair
His eyes closed by the hands of time."
His eyes closed by the hands of time.

Chorus:
And she sang, "Oh, what a cryin' shame!
Oh what a true and cryin' shame!
Oh, what a cryin' shame!
Aha, it's a true and cryin' shame."
Aha, it's a true and cryin' shame.

I looked into the eyes of my one and only love
And I said, "Lover, what did you do?"
She said, "I dug him a grave with my axe and my spade
And filled it with earth and morning dew."
I filled it with earth and morning dew.

I looked into the eyes of my one and only love
And I said, "Lover, what can I say?"
She said - "Nothin' love, oh nothin'
Just hold me while I cry
And make for me a place where I can lay."
I made for her a place where she could lay.

(chorus)

I looked into the eyes of my one and only love
And I said - "Lover, can your brother be avenged?"
She said - "You men just take your vengence right down to your graves.
As for me, I'll make my heart to mend."
And she did, she made her heart to mend.

(chorus)
