Scarlet Ribbons (Alternate Take)

Verse 1

I peeked in to say goodnight
And I heard my child in prayer
"And for me some scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for my hair"

Verse 2

All the stores were closed and shuttered
And all the streets were dark and bare
In our town, no scarlet ribbons
Not one ribbon for her hair

Bridge

Through the night my heart was aching
Just before the dawn was breaking

Verse 3

I peeked in and on her bed
In gay profusion lying there
Lovely ribbons, scarlet ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair

Verse 4

If I live to be to hundred
I will never know from where
Came those ribbons, lovely ribbons
Scarlet ribbons for her hair
