Come all of you fine people now
And listen unto me
I'll tell about sir Gavin knight
And the deepest mystery
For the wind was moaning in the night
When Gavin he rode out
But in the pale light of morning
When the day is dawning
That is just the way of things

It's of a man of courage bold
That I have heard men say
Yes Gavin was a valiant man
The bravest of his day
But the forest met him black and dark
The trees stood tall and stark

It was at dusk he bid farewell to his mother and his bride he saddled and he bridled and he rode off in the night at dawn his good horse did return but never more came he
Sir Gavin to his true love said:
"Now listen unto me!
I'll ride to do what must be done
Then married we shall be"
And home at dawn came his good horse
But never more came he

Now Gavin carried bow and sword
He wore a gallant guise
But the night was filled with eerie calls
And watchful hungry eyes
No matter how his true love yearns
Sir Gavin won't return
But in the pale light of morning
When the day is dawning
That is just the way of things
