Hemlock And Primroses
Recorded by Ralph Stanley
Written by Landon Messer, Albert Parsley, Ralph Stanley

Thinking of you while out for a ramble
C D7 G
Down by a cold frosty stream

Set down on a bed of hemlocks and primroses
C D7 G
And gently I fell into a dream

I dreamed I saw a pretty fair maiden
C D7 G
Such beauty I never saw before

Her dress was bound round with hemlocks and primroses
C D7 G
So green was the mantel she wore

Her hair was of a dark brown color
C D7 G
Her teeth was as ivory so white

Her eyes they shined like sparking diamonds
C D7 G
Of stars than sh--ine on a cold frosty night

I drew her near then I awakened
C D7 G
With two empty ar-ms and you on my mind

Heaven seemed so near while I was dreaming
C D7 G
It hurts to kn-ow you left me behind
