Ballad Of Louise Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I had a love he was mine said he'd love me all the time
I was sure our love was pure if love can be
Then one morning without warning truth came calling on me and her name was Louise
I needn't tell you what she said I just wanted to be dead
For she didn't show mercy for me
You should've seen her walk away into his waiting arms that day
And I watched him stopped to kiss Louise
[ dobro ]
The hour was late the night was warm I hid the bundle beneath my arm
The thought of what I'd soon be doing made me freeze
But without fear I found them there just how and where I knew they'd be
Sleeping cradled in his arms was Louise
Now they close those heavy doors I'll never leave here anymore
But I dare not beg forgiveness on my knees
For it was done with careful plans she'll never steal another man
For tomorrow they'll bury Louise
