This song is by The Civil Wars and appears on the album The Civil Wars (2013).

Original video
Oh, the grass is green
Everywhere but under me
Or so it seems

Got a wedding band
In the name of a wandering man
I love the best I can

Oh Henry
Have you got something to tell me?
'Cause everybody been sayin'
You've been runnin' around

Oh Henry
I know you wouldn't hurt me
Don't you know that we don't need
One more grave in this town, no

Boy, if you're smart
You'll know you'll only have my heart
Ooh, till death do us part

Oh you and I both know
That at the end of that forbidden road
There's a six-foot hole

Oh Henry
Have you got something to tell me?
'Cause everybody been sayin'
You've been runnin' around

Oh Henry
I know you wouldn't hurt me
Don't you know that we don't need
One more grave in this town, no

When we wed, we said forever ever and a day
The whole town heard you promise to be true
So boy, you're gonna only give your gypsy heart to me
If it's the last thing you do

Ooh, oh
Oh, woah

Oh Henry
Have you got something to tell me?
'Cause everybody been sayin'
You been runnin' around

Oh Henry
I know you wouldn't hurt me
Don't you know that we don't need
One more grave in this town
Oh, one more grave in this town
