COLD BLOWS THE WIND (Traditional Chinese spiritual) Lyrics

Artist: Ween
Album: The Mollusk

Cold blows the wind over my true love
Cold blows the drops of rain
I never had but one true love
And in Camville he was slain

I'll do as much for my true love as any young girl may
I'll sit and weep down by his grave for twelve month and one day

But when twelve months were come and gone
This young man he arose
What makes you weep down by my grave
I can't take my repose

One kiss, one kiss of your lily white lips -- one kiss is all I crave
One kiss, one kiss of your lily white lips and return back to your grave

My lips they are as cold as my clay
My breath is heavy and strong
If thou was to kiss my lily white lips
Thy days would not be long

Oh don't you remember the garden grove where we used to walk
Pluck the finest flower of them all, twill wither to a stalk

Go fetch me a nun from the dungeon deep
And water from a stone
And white milk from a maiden's breast,
That babe ere never known

Go dig me a grave both long, wide and deep as quickly as you may
I'll lie down in it and take one sleep for twelve month and one day

Cold blows the wind over my true love
Cold blows the drops of rain
I never had but one true love
And in Camville he was slain

I'll do as much for my true love as any young girl may
I'll sit and weep down by his grave for twelve month and one day

These lyrics are NOT Chinese! This is an ancient English song also known as the Unquiet Grave. Versions of it have been collected in every English speaking country worldwide. Ween has no right to claim them as original

Ween has never claimed these lyrics, in the notes from the album they point this out themselves. duh...
