lyrics

Way down deep in the forest
Something’s calling me
Stopped me dead in the middle of my tracks
To see what I could see
Gazed in through a window
To my surprise
Were fine, fine ladies dancing
with fire in their eyes.

Take me down to the river take me down today
Forgive me girl for what I did and wash my sins away
Ain’t no use in crying now that she’s gone
I vowed I’d never forsake my love
And now she’s proved me wrong.

Oh what a beauty so fine
I was possessed and I nearly lost my mind
To have her, hold her
She will be mine.
And the old black crow comes a calling.

Don’t you hear me calling, calling out your name?
I’d sell my soul to the devil my girl
If I could have you back again
Old black crow comes tapping, tapping at my door
I’ve given everything I got and I ain’t got anymore.

Oh what a beauty so fine
I was possessed and I nearly lost my mind
To have her, hold her
She will be mine.
And the old black crow comes a calling
Comes a calling.


She left so long ago
And now my heart is as black as the coal
Who’s that tapping on my door?
Old black crow coming back for more
Old black crow
Comes a calling, comes a calling, comes a calling.

Sold my soul to the devil
Sold my soul to the devil
Sold my soul to the devil
Sold my soul to the devil

She left so long ago
And now my heart is as black as the coal
Who’s that tapping on my door?
Old black crow coming back for more
Who’s that tapping on my door?
Old black crow coming back for more
Who’s that tapping on my door?
Old black crow coming back for more
Old black crow
Comes a calling.
