Ballad Of Geraldine

Music and lyrics by Donovan P. Leitch


Oh, I was born with the name Geraldine
With hair coal black as a raven
I travelled my life without a care
Ah, but all my love I was saving

Oh, the winds blew high and the trees did sway
Not much from life was I asking
Till I met someone to give all my love
All my love, so long and lasting

Oh, good were the parts we played in our game
And a-long ways off was tomorrow
But my love was a rambler and a-restless as the sea
And in the tide came sorrow

Oh, a child of the night is a-going to be born
I can't explain my confusion
Is my love thinkin' to marry me at all
Or of the freedom he thinks he'll be losing?

I sit with my friends in the gay crowded room
My friends they're smoking and a-talking
But it all seems so empty, my love is not there
So I'll go into the streets a-walking

My baby is a-growing as a-growing it must
If I were to lose it, it would grieve me
My love is so helpless and I'm wondering what to do
Oh, how I yearn to help him

Oh, we could go to the land of your choice
Where the false shame won't come knocking at our door
I've a feeling in my heart and it's crushing all my hopes
I think I'm gonna be hurt some more

Oh, I was born with the name Geraldine
With hair coal black as a raven
I travelled my life without a care
Ah, but all my love I was saving
