Tall Lover Man

Lyrics written by: Jennifer

Two lovers stood in the white, white sand
A dark-eyed maiden and her tall loverman
With surprise and pain in her eyes
She clung to the hand of her tall loverman

They’re lying to me aren’t they, Jim, she asked him
That fair-haired girl with those blue, blue eyes is not your wife is she, Jim
And with tears in her eyes and sad, sad cries
She clung to the hand of her tall loverman

In the darkness he let go of her hand
I’m not to blame, it was a game
Cause that fair-haired woman is my wife
And she will be all my life

You’re lying to me aren’t you, Jim, she asked him
If loving me was a sport
Then your life will be short
She said to him

And the blade of the maid
Struck the man
And the blood flowed in the sand
From her tall loverman

Two lovers lying in the white, white sand
I’ll die with you my tall loverman
And her blade found its mark in the dark
And she clung to the hand of her tall loverman

They’re lying to me aren’t they, Jim, she asked him
That fair-haired girl with those blue, blue eyes won’t be your wife, my Jim
And with tears in her eyes and sad, sad cries
She died in the sand by her tall lover man
