Lyrics

Its hard to tell This is my wedding night I'm dressed and ready Despite my innocence Its hard to tell Who's little girl am I The man with the black hat Will take me home tonight I wash my body Five years grown He promised father Leave me alone Hope not too lonely We pull away Down a dusty road Family waving Hope not too lonely I watch the grass blow Through the window I'm a grass widow I'm a grass widow News from the sparrow My friendly fellow They get along Just fine without me They're never lonely They're never lonely I watch the flowers grow Outside my window I'm a good grass widow I'm a grass widow
