Krauss, Alison - You Will Be My Ain True Love Lyrics

You'll walk unscathed through musket fire,
No ploughman's blade will cut thee down,
No cutless wound will mark thy face
And you will be my ain true love,
And you will be my ain true love

And as you walk through death's dark veil,
The cannon's thunder can't prevail,
And those who hunt thee down will fail,
And you will be my ain true love,
And you will be my ain true love.

Asleep inside the cannon's mouth,
The captain cries, "Here comes the rout,"
They'll seek to find me north and south,
I've gone to find my ain true love.

The field is cut and bleeds to red.
The cannon balls fly round my head,
The infirmary man may count me dead,
When I've gone to find my ain true love,
I've gone to find my ain true love

  17. Zorian

    This song makes me want to cry. Exceptional accompaniment by Sting. Sting wrote this?

  18. vinny

    Such a moving, haunting and powerful piece. Alison Krauss is always amazing and unmatched on this song with a voice that's pure, enabling her to blend perfectly with Sting. No other artists could remake or match their tonal quality on this lyrical masterpiece of civil war story telling by Sting and Alison Krauss.

  19. tracey born

    i lost my only husband to die a USMC

  20. Ufa Da

    I come from cold mountain 👀

  29. Patti Hanlon

    Does anyone have a link to the full concert? thanks.

  30. Crandaddy

    This just *_had_* to be in competition for an Oscar right along side LOTR's "Into the West"... It would have won best original song easily just about any other year. It's simply gorgeous!

    David B

    Into the of the only songs that can break the ice on my heart.

  31. Jerry Lambert

    Sting is such a pro here. He steps back and bathes in the purity that is Alison Krauss. You can see the moment where he falls in love with her, all over again.

  32. Ken Ward

    I wish it was louder.

  33. John Day Jr.

    Damn , this gave me the goose bumps.

  34. George Pollastri

    I love this beautiful ladies voice, she sure can sing ...

    J Bone

    You mean, she sure can Sting.

  35. Antony Quigley

    her voice is tracked. stings isnt

    Kyle Crane

    a beaut.iful song that portrays a doomed love that still survived in spite of the horrors of war...or, perhaps, because of it..

    H J

    Antony Quigley Have any reason to say that? Because her voice is literally flawless live.

  36. gord bard

    Raw, bittersweet harmonies. They convey the sentiments of the song beautifully.

  37. Marie L


    Marie L

    Agreed. The voice of an angel.

  41. Udycoi

    i straight up just cried... so pretty.

  42. Samantha Esra


  43. Joe Snodgrass

    Absolutely love how non-matching Stings voice is to hers. And Martin Tillman's background cello is just... lush.

  44. Deborah Adolph

    Probably my favorite song both for the haunting words and ethereal harmony between Allison Krauss and Sting....he has written a beautiful Civil War song

    Kyle Crane

    exquisite. ..a glimpse into the horror that was the civil war...when men attempting to return to their homes and loved ones were hunted down and shot...paying the ultimate price for a war that ripped the country apart and brought no glory for either side.

  45. Miss Tigerlilly

    Beautiful lady,beautiful song xxx

  46. jason scade

    Haunting, beautiful, unforgettable.  <3

  47. Jim Augie

    Does anyone know if there is a version of this with out Sting?

    Julie West

    Yes, it's on the Cold Mountain soundtrack.

    Jim Augie

    +Julie West We must have different sound tracks Julie. Ain True Love is track 8 on mine but Sting is singing with her on mine.

    Julie West

    +Jim Augie I looked on the info of the song. Only her name was listed. Hmmm. I'll have to give it a listen again. Maybe I just never noticed.

    Jim Augie

    I know what you are saying. I saw her name only too. Thanks anyhow Julie.

  48. anytah naruto

    Truly beautiful...such purity❤️

  49. scoobydisney

    Brought me to tears. Can't do justice to this performance in words. Like an Angel breathing life into words.

  50. Anna Lisa

    Haunting, and truly mystical. Her quality of depth here, reminds me of June Tabor singing, "False, False".

  51. Auntkekebaby

    I love this song so much.

  52. Benny G

    Very beautiful. This song is like Time machine.

  53. Vivian Mckinzie

    J1M B34M

    Doesn't get any better than alison krauss and jack white, Along with the A-list actors of Cold Mountain. Renee Zellweger stole the Lead from Nicole. My favorite movie of all time....

    Joanne Olivieri

    I completely agree with you.

    J1M B34M

    just Angelic. and you will be my ain' true love...

  54. Katrina Curry

    Sublime, dark and magical. Sting is a genius and I will always be grateful for the joy he brought to my life. This Sting & Alison Krauss collab is perfect.

  61. Matheus Mello

  62. Michael Thiessen

    One of just a scant few songs that make me think of my own one true love.. so long ago, yet as yesterday...

  63. zimgadol


  64. Celtic Borders

    Hello guys, we would literally be over the moon if anyone could come and check out our cover for this song. Our fiddle player is truly beautiful. We would be so touched. Thankyou so much and thankyou Alison and Sting for this song. One of my all time fave songs. :-)

  65. Tomate Farcie

    oh wow!!!

  66. Liz de carlo

    oops i mean Alison Krauss.

  67. Liz de carlo

    Alison Kruass vocals are just beautiful. She was perfect for this song.

  68. Laura Ess

    Is that Sting on one of the instruments?

  69. Michael Daly

    All I can say is.......


  70. rzernen

    @StoneMass75 "Jacob's Dream"'s on A Hundred Miles or More....that song is incredible.

  71. Mia Aim


  72. Koen de Jong

    People who don't like this must see the doctor!

  73. Koen de Jong

    Many comments removed!
    There are simply no words to describe this anyhow..

  74. bopbopanna

    That performance is the definition of sublime. Bravo. Gets me every time.

  75. Bevoe

    This is such a beautiful, heartwrenching song. This is a masterpiece of writing and arranging by Sting and Alison's voice is just perfect for it. She is one of the few out there now that can pull off a perfect, live performance. Alot of today's female singers have to look good in a skimpy outfit and their voices require extensive manipulation in the studio.

  76. Jennifer Lijfering

    touches your soul wow!

  77. MediaFilter

    Sublime, so deep and dark.

  78. evrlastingbeauti

    The sound is out of sync with the video. You can hear the sound stop a good 4-6 seconds before the video ends.

  79. konzalik

    I love this song, and Sting always made an excelent compositions.
