GUEST,Mike Lyr Add: Must I Be Bound (38) RE: Lyr Add: Must I Go Bound 01 Feb 06


Sam Hinton sings a song by this name on the old LP, Newport Folk Festival, The Evening Concerts (1963). I'm terrible at remembering lyrics, which is why I was trying to look them up. What I remember is this:

1st VERSE:

Oh, grieve, oh, grieve, my true love, grieve.
Must I go bound, while you go free.
....
Must I love one that don't love me.

REFRAIN:

Oh, dig, oh, dig, my grave so deep.
A marble slab at my head and feet.
And on my breast a turtle dove,
To show the world I died of love.

2nd VERSE:

...
...
I'll hang my heart on the willow tree,
To show the world I died for thee.

(REFRAIN)
