LYRICS: Jim Reeves - Scarlet Ribbons




I peeped in to say goodnight
And then I heard my child in prayer
Hand for me some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair


All the stores were locked and shuttered
All the streets were dark and bare
In our town no scarlet ribbons
No scarlet ribbons for her hair


Through the night my heart was aching
Just before the dawn was breaking


I peeped in and on her bed
In gay profusion lying there
Scarlet ribbons, scarlet ribbons
Pretty scarlet ribbons for her hair


If I lived to be a hundred
I will never know from where
Came those lovely scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair
