lyrics

This is a sorry story, it's one you know too well
The girl she sold her conscience and she rode straight into hell
The Devil told her father, your girl's a ne'er do well
Her father don't believe him so the Devil showed him hell

The flowers they burn there and the rivers flow enflamed
Trees bow down their bows there, they hide their leaves in shame

The girl she told her story to all who'd hear her tell
She said, I feel no glory, here in this hole I fell
I did not mean to hurt him, I know I caused him pain
I never did deserve him, now here I will remain

The flowers they burn there and the rivers flow enflamed
Trees bow down their bows there, and the people have no name

He whispered in my ear, take the apple oh so sweet
And I'm sorry dear, but the apple I did eat

The flowers they burn there and the rivers flow enflamed
Trees bow down their bows there, they hide their leaves in shame
The flowers they burn there and the rivers flow enflamed
Trees bow down their bows there, they share my endless shame
