"They look as white as snow."
"Those are the hills of Heaven, my pet,
Where your husband and babe will go,
But Heaven we'll never know."
"What are those other hills?" she said.
"They look as black as night."
"That is the hills of Hell, my pet,
Where you and I'll unite.
Where you and I'll unite."
"Where you and I'll unite."
