Lyrics

On the first day of May, frost lay on the vine When just yesterday, it was warm as summertime But the North wind did bring her cold heart with her Now we’re in the middle of a blackberry winter And it’s cold, cold, cold Colder than I’ve known Buds die before they come to flower It’s cold, cold, cold Deep inside my bones Lonely lays heavy every hour Colder than a broken heart shiver In a Blackberry Winter I fell in love in April with a man from Virginia way A kind-hearted soldier dressed in battle grey. He promised me his love as we sat down by the river But he died in the fighting in the blackberry winter And it’s cold, cold, cold Colder than I’ve known Buds die before they come to flower It’s cold, cold, cold Deep inside my bones Lonely lays heavy every hour Colder than a broken heart shiver In a Blackberry Winter. I wandered down the mountain crying for my love Despairing like the willow in the frozen mud I will take my last icy breath to be with him forever Among the silent blossoms of the blackberry winter. And it’s cold, cold, cold Colder than I’ve known Buds die before they come to flower It’s cold, cold, cold Deep inside my bones Lonely lays heavy every hour Colder than a broken heart shiver In a Blackberry Winter.
