(Laura Powers/Paul Nowak)

lyrics

She was fair as a maid could be
In love with a young man
Bound to serve his King
Wounded in battle he tried to return
They say the last steps that he took
Were walking back to her

They say she roamed these hills in search of him
Driven by a grief that knows no end
And where each seed of sorrow falls a tiny flower appears
And the winding heather on the moors marks the trail of her tears

She vowed to find where her true love lay
For years she searched these barren hills in vain
The night she died they saw her
A spirit in the mist
And blooms came forth as she wept
For his final kiss

Her ghost still roams these hills in search of him
Driven by a grief that knows no end
And where each seed of sorrow falls a tiny flower appears
And the winding heather on the moors marks the trail of her tears
And the winding heather on the moors marks the trail of her tears
