Silver Dagger Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Don't sing love songs, you'll wake my mother
She's sleeping here right by my side
And in her right hand a silver dagger
She says that I can't be your bride

All men are false, says my mother
They'll tell you wicked, lovin' lies
The very next evening they'll court another
Leave you alone to pine and sigh

My daddy is a handsome devil
He's got a chain five miles long
And on every link a heart does dangle
Of another maid he's loved and wronged

Go court another tender maiden
And hope that she will be your wife
For I've been warned and I've decided
To sleep alone all of my life
