Black Is The Color Of My True Love's Hair Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone


Black is the color of my true love's hair
His face so soft and wondrous fair
The purest eyes
and the strongest hands
I love the ground on where he stands
I love the ground on where he stands

Black is the color of my true love's hair
Of my true love's hair
Of my true love's hair

Oh I love my lover
and where he goes
yes, I love the ground on where he goes
And still I hope
that the time will come
when he and I will be as one
when he and I will be as one

So black is the color of my true love's hair
Black is the color of my true love's hair
Black is the color of my true love's hair

Je dois chanter cette chanson pour un spectacle sur la ségrégation raciale, c'est une magnifique chanson à une émotion très forte!

Think she did a duet version first which had much more verses made original apart from the Irish folk original.. Her conviction on her more commercial recordings always keeps me in aw. But her original film recordings are worth watching as you see how much her performance connects with her audience... Before the White collar groupies hit her like a plague of bad taste. Nowonder she went a little sour. Love her

there is a mistake, it is :
"...
I love my lover
and WELL HE KNOWS
..."

pssssst.... it's Scottish not "very Irish"...just sayin'.
It is lovely, though. Especially Nina Simone's rendition.

Too bad the song (weather the original Scottish version or any covers of it) never mention his/her eye color. I'm doing a male character and I'm making his skin fair and his hair black...I just need the eyes! But I do love this song (I've only the the Celtic Women's version, though)
