Grave In The Valley

There’s a grave in the bend of the valley
Where the shadows sweep over so still
There my darling is sleeping so peaceful
In a grave at the foot of the hill

On the night when I’m lonely and thinkin’
Of my sweetheart who’s now gone away
I go back to the place where she’s sleeping
I’m just longing to see her some day

God gave us the joy that we wished for
Just a few nights together to be
Then he carried her to heaven’s bright portal
There where she will be waiting for me

For I often go back to the valley
Where the willows weep over her head
There to be just once more with my darling
By her side though I know she is dead
