Shadow Of The Pines

we had wondered in the shadow of the pines
the moon looked down on you and me
and a darkness crept across the summer sky
and a shadow came between my love and i

o darlin' come love me as before
come back to leave me never more
at that spot i'm sad and lonely
and the sun no longer shines
come and meet me in the shadow of the pines

you went away and left me and my tears i could not hide
you went away and not one word was said
as my throbbing heart was aching underneath its load of pride
the pine trees sobbed in pity o'er my head

o darlin'...

now our future is o'er shadowed by a darkness of despair
and across my path the sun no longer shines
and i'd give this whole world gladly once again to meet her there
and reunite in the shadow of the pines
