Black Ribbon Yonder
© 2003 Fajita Musik

A somewhat Irish, somewhat Americana-folk song written for Bing's fiancee'

I'm away, I'm away on the black ribbon yonder
before me's the road that I'll travel today
I'm away, I'm away and I couldn't be fonder
of who is behind me that loves me so true
if I don't come home dear, please know I love you

the amplifier's packed and my dulcimer's stashed
it's nine in the morning; we're ready to go
a kiss on the lips and a "see you next wednesday,
it's high time that we got this show on the road"

I'm away, I'm away on the black ribbon yonder
before me's the road that I'll travel today
I'm away, I'm away and I couldn't be fonder
of who is behind me that loves me so true
if I don't come home dear, please know I love you

the direction we're headed is that-away fast
seven solid hours on I-75
it won't be too long till we make it to Macon
I promise to call you soon as we arrive

I'm away, I'm away on the black ribbon yonder
before me's the road that I'll travel today
I'm away, I'm away and I couldn't be fonder
of who is behind me that loves me so true
if I don't come home dear, please know I love you

I'll miss you like sunshine, I'll miss you like air
the night will be longer without you in reach
with morning comes glory as we rise to greet it
then I'm coming home to you, my Georgia peach

I'm away, I'm away on the black ribbon yonder
before me's the road that I'll travel today
I'm away, I'm away and I couldn't be fonder
of who is behind me that loves me so true
if I don't come home dear, please know I love you
