Blue Ridge Cabin Home


  1. There’s a well beaten path on the old mountainside

Where I wandered when I was a lad

I wandered alone to a place I call home

In those Blue Ridge hills far away
CHORUS:

Oh I love those hills of old Virginia

Those Blue Ridge hills I did roam

When I die won’t you bury me on the mountain

Far away in my Blue Ridge Mountain home


  1. As my thoughts wander back to that ramshackle shack

In those Blue Ridge hills far away

My mother and dad are laid there to rest

They are sleeping in peace together there
CHORUS


  1. I returned to that old cabin home with the sight

I’d been longing for days gone by

When I die won’t you bury me on that old mountain side

Make my resting place upon the hills so high
CHORUS
CHORUS


We Can’t Be Darlings Anymore


  1. Darling you often said you loved me
    But you’ve gone on before
    You don’t know dear how I miss you
    But we can’t be darlings anymore

CHORUS:


Darling I am sad and lonely
Since you’ve gone on before
So down here on this lonely earth dear
We can’t be darlings anymore


  1. Until we meet up there in heaven
    And we can walk the golden shore
    For down here on this lonely earth dear
    We can’t be darlings anymore

CHORUS



  1. I have lost a million tears dear
    Since you’ve left this world and gone
    But we can never again be darlings
    Till we meet around the throne

CHORUS
CHORUS




Molly And Tenbrooks


  1. Run oh Molly run, run oh Molly run
    Tenbrooks’s gonna beat you to the bright shining sun.
    To the bright shining sun, Oh Lord, to the bright shining sun




  1. Tenbrooks was a big bay horse he wore that shaggy mane
    He run all around Memphis and he beat the Memphis train
    Beat the Memphis train, oh Lord, beat the Memphis train




  1. Tenbrooks said to Molly what made your head so red
    Running in the hot sun with a fever in my head
    Fever in my head, h Lord, fever in my head




  1. Molly said to Tenbrooks you’re looking mighty squirrel
    Tenbrooks said to Molly I’m leaving this old world
    Leaving this old world, oh Lord, leaving this old world




  1. Out in California where Molly done as she pleased
    She came back to old Kentucky, got beat with all ease
    Beat with all ease, oh Lord, beat with all ease




  1. The women all a-laughing the children all a-crying
    The men all a-hollering old Tenbrooks a-flying
    Old Tenbrooks a-flying, oh Lord, old Tenbrooks a-flying




  1. Kyper, Kyper, you’re not riding right
    Molly’s beating old Tenbrooks clear out sight
    Clear out of sight, oh Lord, clear out of sight




  1. Kyper, Kyper, Kyper my son
    Give old Tenbrooks a bridle and let old Tenbrooks run
    Let old Tenbrooks run, oh Lord, let old Tenbrooks run




  1. Go and fetch old Tenbrooks and hitch him in the shade
    We’re gonna bury old Molly in a coffin ready made
    Coffin ready made, oh Lord, coffin ready made

Let old Tenbrooks run, oh Lord, let old Tenbrooks run



I Believed In You Darling


  1. Oh you said that you loved me that your heart would be true

But now you’ve gone and left me, I’m so blue

I believed in you darling that your heart would be true

But now you’ve gone and left me, I’m so blue
CHORUS:

Our vows have been broken, you have proven untrue

Another has my sweetheart and a love that I once knew

I believed in you darling that your heart would be true

But now you’ve gone and left me, I’m so blue


  1. Oh the nights are so lonely, dreams of you haunt me so

What’s happened little darling, I don’t know

I believed in you darling that your heart would be true

But now you’ve gone and left me, I’m so blue
CHORUS

Model Church


Well wife I’ve found a model church
And worshipped there today
It made me think of the good old times
Before my hair was gray
The meetinghouse was finer built
Than they were years ago
But I found out when I went in
It was not built for show
The sexton did not sit me down
Away back by the door
He knew that I was old and deaf
And saw that I was poor
He must have been a Christian man
He led me boldly through
The long aisle of that crowded church
To find a pleasant pew
I wish you’d heard the singing, wife
it had the old town ring
The preacher said with trumpet voice
Let all the people sing

Oh Coronation was the tune


The music upward roared
I thought I heard the angel choir

Strike on their harps of gold

I tell you wife it did me good
To sing those hymns once more
I felt just like some wrecked marine
Who gets a glimpse of shore
It made want to lay aside
This weather beaten form
And anchor in that blessed port
Forever from the storm

Dear wife the toil will soon be o’er


The victory soon be won
The shining strand is just ahead
Our race is nearly run
We’re near to Canaan’s happy shore
Our hopes are bright and fair
Thank God we’ll never sin again
There’ll be no sorrow there
There’ll be no sorrow there
In heaven above
Where all is love
There’ll be no sorrow there


I’m On My Way Back To The Old Home


  1. Back in the days of my childhood
    In the evening when everything was still
    We used to sit and listen to the foxhounds
    With my dad in the old Kentucky hills

CHORUS:


I’m on my way back to the old home
The road winds on up the hill
But there’s no light in the window
That shines on the road where I live


  1. Soon my childhood days were over
    I had to leave my old home
    For mum and dad were called to rest in heaven
    And I’m left in this world all alone

CHORUS



  1. High in the hills of old Kentucky
    Stands the fondest spot in my memory
    I’m on my way back to the old home
    The light in the window I long to see

CHORUS


Gonna Settle Down

 


  1. Tonight I’m all alone no place to call my own
    Don’t have no one to love me anymore
    I’m gonna pack up my grip and take a long long trip
    Back to the one that I love so



CHORUS:
Oh I long to go back to my darling
Back to the one I love so well
I know she’ll be my wife and we’ll settle down for life
Cause she’s the one that means the world to me


  1. I can’t forget the day I left and went away
    You told you me I’d be sorry some old day
    I found it to be true so I’m heading back to you
    Sweetheart I’m tired and I want to settle down

CHORUS



  1. When I get back to her my rambling days are over
    We’ll build a little cottage on the hill
    We’ll think of days gone by sweetheart just you and I
    And there we’ll live so happy ever more

CHORUS


Toy Heart

 

CHORUS:



Darling, you toyed with toy heart
I think you played the game right from the start
This toy heart was broken when parting words were spoken
Darling, you toyed with a toy heart


  1. You played with my poor heart like a toy
    That toy broke and then we had to part
    It never can be mended I hope this romance’s ended
    Darling, you toyed with a toy heart

CHORUS



  1. Now darling my time will come some day
    Time alone will heal my broken heart
    The clouds will roll away, the sun will shine someday
    Darling, you toyed with a toy heart

CHORUS



  1. Now darling you know you’ve done me wrong
    Your love for me has passed and gone
    I’ll find somebody new, I hope that they’ll be true
    Darling you toyed with a toy heart

CHORUS



Pain In My Heart


  1. When I first I met you, right from the start

You’ve known that I loved you, from the pain in my heart

So look in my eyes and see that it’s true

And say that you love me, please don’t make me blue
CHORUS:

With pain in my heart and blues on my mind

I’ll always love you but can you be mine

Can you be mine with another man’s name

You know that I love you and I’m not to blame


  1. Say that you love me and you will be mine

With pain in your heart and blues on your mind

Please say that you love me and don’t say goodbye

You know that I love you, for you I would die

Chalk Up Another One

 


  1. You should get a medal dear for every broken heart
    For every life you’ve ruined cause you think you’re so smart
    I never even had a chance and now my life is lost
    Once more you’ve had your fun and you don’t care how much it cost

CHORUS:


Oh chalk up another one, another broken heart
Chalk up another one, a heart you tore apart
You picked me for a fool my dear how well I played the part
Chalk up another one, another broken heart


  1. Broken vows and shattered dreams mean little dear to you
    Cause once you said you love me and now you say were through
    Well all is fair in love and war I guess you taught me so
    Cause in this crazy game of love you hit an all time low

CHORUS



  1. I have only pity in this evil life you choose
    This unfair game you’re playing where everyone must lose
    But let me tell you something some day you won’t forget
    Add me to your collection and you’ll wish we never met

CHORUS


River Of Death

 


  1. Oh the river of death lies just before me
    Can I find a place that I can cross
    Or will I be in sin forever
    Oh Lord don’t let my soul be lost




  1. Oh I wanna walk with Christ my savior
    For he’s the one that’ll guide me on
    All through my life I’ve been a sinner
    Now I’m right with God so I’m traveling home




  1. Oh I can hear my savior calling
    To me his voice sounds sweet and low
    For me I hear my loved ones cheering
    Oh, praise the Lord I’m ready to go




  1. My life down here will soon be over
    And this old world holds nothing for me
    He saved my soul and He made me happy
    That beautiful land I’m going to see



Your Love Is Like A Flower

 


  1. It was long, long ago in the moonlight
    We were sitting on the banks of the stream
    When you whispered so sweetly, I love you
    As the waters murmured a tune

CHORUS:
Oh they tell me your love is like a flower


In the springtime blossoms so fair
In the fall then they wither away dear
And they tell me that’s the way of your love


  1. I remember the night, little darling
    We were talking of days gone by
    When you told me you always would love me
    That for me your love would never die

CHORUS



  1. It was spring when you whispered these words dear
    The flowers were all blooming so fair
    But today as the snow falls around us
    I can see that your love is not there

CHORUS


We May Meet Again Someday


  1. At my window sad and lonely

Often do I think of you

And I wonder little darling

If you think you love me too
CHORUS:

Don’t forget me little darling

When from you I’m far away

Just remember little darling

We may meet again someday


  1. You may meet the saddest faces

Some will tell I’m not true

Don’t believe it little darling

No one loves you as I do
CHORUS
CHORUS

Take Me In Your Lifeboat
CHORUS:

Take me in your lifeboat, oh


Take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, oh
Take me in your lifeboat
It will bear my spirit home.


  1. Now come brothers and sisters and don’t fall asleep
    We’ll pray night and day or we’ll sink in the deep
    Fathers and mothers are praying so well
    Oh Lord won’t you take me in your lifeboat.

CHORUS



  1. The clouds are so heavy the winds are so loud
    The thunder are rolling and bursting the clouds
    They pray to their sinner mates for what they have done
    They took the dying sinner in their lifeboat.

CHORUS


Sitting Alone In The Moonlight

 


  1. Sitting alone in the moonlight
    Thinking of the days gone by
    Wondering about my darling
    I can still hear her saying goodbye

CHORUS:


Oh the moon grows pale as I sit here
Each little star seems to whisper and say
Your sweetheart has found another
And now she’s far far away
(Repeat verse and chorus)

Back To The Cross

 


  1. I’m out on the sea filled with sorrows
    Tossed like a ship who ran ashore
    I’m seeking the help of my savior
    By the way of the cross I must go

CHORUS:


Back to the cross and to Jesus
Back to the cross I am called
I’ve drifted too far and I’ve wandered
From the savior that once was my home



  1. The sins of this world have overcome me
    Have pushed and left me to roam
    So I’m going to back to my savior
    Back to the cross and home

CHORUS



  1. The joy of these life are too fleeting
    And wrapped in troubles around
    I’ve lost the church of the stranger
    I’ve drifted too far from home

CHORUS


Just When I Needed You


  1. Just when I needed you, you left and went away
    You made my life so blue both night and day
    You left me here behind with a troubled worried mind
    So broken hearted too just when I needed you

CHORUS:


I cried, I cried, I prayed, I tried
To forget you and never call your name
What a shame what a shame you’re the one that was to blame
You’re the one that proved untrue just when I needed you


  1. You said it’s best we part and never love again
    And though it broke my heart I won’t complain
    You know I love you still and dear I always will
    Although you proved untrue just when I needed you

CHORUS


One Tear
CHORUS:

One tear won’t make a heartache

One tear won’t make a heart break

If the tear I shed today is all I’ll have to pay


One tear is all I’ve cried for you


  1. I thought I’d never live without the tender love we shared
    But absence only showed my heart I’ll never really care
    I’m glad that it’s all over now I’m glad that we are through
    One tear is all I’ve cried for you

CHORUS



  1. I’ll live a happy life again and have my dreams come true
    My heart will bounce right back again and never think of you
    And then when you come asking me to take you back again
    One tear is all I’ll cry for you

CHORUS
CHORUS



Ocean Of Diamonds

 


  1. Some people drink champagne out under the stars
    While others drink wine leaning over a bar
    But all that I need dear to make me feel fine
    Is to know that your love will forever be mine

CHORUS:


I’d give an ocean of diamonds, a world filled with flowers
To hold you closely for just a few hours
Hear you whisper softly that you love me too
Would change all the dark clouds to bluest of blue


  1. I don’t drink their champagne and I don’t drink their wine
    So if you refuse me my poor heart will pine
    I’ll be so lonely till the day that I die
    And as long as I live dear you’ll still hear me cry

CHORUS


Is It Too Late Now?

 


  1. Is it too late now to tell you that I love you
    Or is there still a chance for me somehow
    Oh they tell me now that you have found another
    Darling please don’t say it’s too late now




  1. I know this heart of mine could never stand it
    If I should have to give you up somehow
    Oh won’t you say that you’ll give me one more chance dear
    Darling please don’t say it’s too late now




  1. Well I confess I know I done you wrong, dear
    Oh can’t you see my side again somehow
    All I ask of you is to give me one more chance dear
    Darling please don’t say it’s too late now


So Happy I’ll Be


  1. I’m just waiting for the time to come

When all sorrow will be done,

Then I’m going home to heaven above

Where we shall sing with the angels up there

Tell the savior of his love and care

That he had for me in this world below
CHORUS:

So happy I’ll be when my savior I shall see

And tell him of his love that he had for me

No more sorrows or grief or pain

All the time will be the same

So happy I’ll be forever more




  1. Some happy time just to wait and see

When blessed savior will come for me

Then I’m going home to heaven above

Where beloved ones have gone before

To that bright and shining shore

So happy I’ll be forever more
CHORUS


  1. Oh, just think of the day, my friend,

When the saints go marching in

Then I’m going home to heaven above,

Oh, so happy I will be

When blessed savior I shall see

So happy I’ll be forever more
CHORUS

Don’t This Road Look Rough And Rocky

 


  1. Darling, I have come to tell you
    Though it almost breaks my heart
    But before the morning darling
    We’ll be many miles apart

CHORUS:


Don’t this road look rough and rocky
Don’t that sea look wide and deep
Don’t my baby look the sweetest
When she’s in my arms asleep


  1. Can’t you hear the night birds crying
    Far across the deep blue sea
    While of others you are thinking
    Won’t you sometimes think of me

CHORUS



  1. One more kiss before I leave you
    One more kiss before we part
    You have caused me lots of trouble
    Darling you have broke my heart

CHORUS


I’ll Never Shed Another Tear


  1. I used to sit alone at night and worry little darling
    For I thought you meant the world to me
    But now things have changed and those days are gone forever
    So I’ll never shed another tear

CHORUS:


I’ll never shed another tear now I don’t care what happens
You have proved your love untrue to me
There’s nothing you can do that will ever change my feelings
So I’ll never shed another tear


  1. With a broken heart I’ll never forget the vows we made together
    The many times you told me not to fear
    But now you’ve forgotten and you’ve left me here forever
    So I’ll never shed another tear

CHORUS



  1. Now you should have told me dear that you were only fooling
    Then I’d never learn to love you so
    Then I wouldn’t have all these heartaches my darling
    Dreading the day I see you go

CHORUS


Devil In Disguise
CHORUS:

She’s a devil in disguise


You can see it in her eyes
She’s telling dirty lies
She’s a devil in disguise in disguise.


  1. Now a woman like that all she does is hate you
    She doesn’t know what makes a man a man
    She’ll talk about the times that she’s been with you
    She’ll speak your name with everyone she can.

CHORUS



  1. Unhappiness has been her close companion
    Her soul is full of jealousy and doubt
    It gets her up to see a person crying
    She’s just the kind that you can live without

CHORUS



  1. Her number always turns up in your pocket
    Whenever you are looking for a dime
    Well it’s all right to call her but I’ll bet you
    The moon is full and you’re just wasting time.

CHORUS



Letter From My Darling


  1. I can’t answer her letter
    For she left me no address
    You should know my little darling
    You left my poor heart in distress

CHORUS:


I got a letter from my darling
She said she hated to go
It broke my heart the words she wrote me
She closed by saying I love you so


  1. She wrote the words she knew would hurt me
    She said I never could be true
    I’ve tried I’ve tried my little darling
    To prove my love was just for you

CHORUS



  1. This letter meant goodbye forever
    Though we’ll have each other’s hearts
    Our love will fade away in sadness
    Precious one why did we have to part

CHORUS


A Hundred Years From Now
CHORUS:

Well a hundred years from now I won’t be crying


A hundred years from now I won’t be blue
And my heart will have forgotten that she broke every vow
I won’t care a hundred years from now


  1. Oh, it seems like only yesterday you told me
    You couldn’t live without my love somehow
    Now that you’re with another it breaks my heart somehow
    I won’t care a hundred years from now

CHORUS



  1. Now do you recall the night sweetheart you promised
    Another’s kiss you never would allow
    That’s all in the past dear it didn’t seem to last
    I won’t care a hundred years from now

CHORUS


Unfaithful One
CHORUS:

Unfaithful one you’ll have to suffer


You’re doomed to go through life alone
For no one else will ever trust you
They’ll know your heart is made of stone


  1. I still recall our happy years dear
    Our love was fresh as flowers of spring
    But now you’ve left me for a stranger
    You’ve lost the right to wear my ring

CHORUS



  1. So blue was I the day you left me
    My heart was sad and lonely too
    My place was taken by this stranger
    You traded an old love for a new

CHORUS


Down The Road

 


  1. Now down the road just a mile or two
    Lives a little girl named Pearly Blue
    About so high and her hair is brown
    The prettiest thing boys in this town




  1. Now anytime you want to know
    Where I’m going, down the road
    Get my girl on the line
    You’ll find me there most any old time




  1. Now everyday and Sunday too
    I go to see my Pearly Blue
    Before you hear that rooster crow
    You’ll see me headed down the road




  1. Now old man Hicks he owned a farm
    From the hog lot to the barn
    From the barn to the rail
    He made his living by carrying the mail




  1. Now every time I get the blues
    I walk the soles right off my shoes
    I don’t know why I love her so
    That gal of mine lives down the road


I’d Rather Be Alone
CHORUS:

I’d rather be alone and have you dream of me only


Than have you say you’re sorry that we are apart
I’d rather be alone and have you dream of me only
Than to be in your arms but never in your heart


  1. Well I’ve just received your letter you asked me to come home
    You say you’re sorry that you went away
    This is an old old story and I’ve heard it all before
    So darling this is all that I can say

CHORUS



  1. I tried so hard my darling to make you love me then
    ‘Cause you would always leave me here alone
    And although I could forgive you things would be the same
    Nothing could ever change your heart of stone

CHORUS


Big Spike Hammer


  1. Can’t you hear the rhythm of my big spike hammer
    Lord it’s busting my side
    I’ve done all I can do to keep that woman
    Still she’s not satisfied

CHORUS:


Hey, hey Della Mae
Why do you treat me this way
Hey, hey Della Mae
I’ll get even some day


  1. I’m the best hammer swinger on this big section gang
    Big Bill Johnson is my name
    Lord this hammer that I swing for a dollar and a half a day
    I’ll all for my Della Mae

CHORUS



  1. Now I’ve been lots of places, not much I ain’t done
    There’s still a lot of things I’d like to see
    Lord this hammer that I swing or the woman that I love
    Yes, one’s gonna be the death of me

CHORUS


Please Search Your Heart

 

Please search your heart and maybe you’ll find


A reason to stay I’m begging this time
I know I was wrong, but darling I’ve paid
Please search your heart before it’s too late

When you left me I said that I’d never be blue


That I wouldn’t cry if you found someone new

But this is my plea, give me one more try


Please search your heart, don’t tell me goodbye.

Please search your heart, don’t tell me goodbye



Hey Lonesome
CHORUS:

Hey lonesome who broke your heart into

Hey lonesome who left you with the blues


  1. I never will forget the day

That you threw my dreams away

When I told you there’d come a day

For all your wrongs to end you’d pay
CHORUS


  1. You didn’t care what I went through

You left me here to cry

You knew my love for you was true

But still you said good bye
CHORUS


  1. I tried to tell you when you left

That you’d be back someday

But I’ve done found me some one else

And here is all I’ve got to say
CHORUS

I’m Waiting To Hear You Call Me Darling
CHORUS:

I’m waiting to hear you call me darling


I’m waiting to hear you call me dear
You know that I have always loved you
Don’t make me lonely all these years


  1. Two years ago when I first met you
    You smiled at me and looked so sweet
    You made me think you cared about me
    But you never said that you loved me

CHORUS



  1. Oh maybe I took too much for granted
    To think you’d ever love me
    Please oh please don’t try to fool me
    ‘Cause all you’d cause is misery

CHORUS


Wall Around Your Heart
CHORUS:

Stone must be the wall built around your heart


I still love you darling, but the time has come to part
No more sorrow, no more pain, can enter this heart of mine
Life isn’t long in this old world let the past stay behind



  1. I once had a darling sweetheart and I loved her so
    I love her more than I could ever let my poor heart show
    But she ran away and left me and found somebody else
    She left me here in this old world to cry all to myself



CHORUS



  1. I know somewhere in this old world there is a girl for me
    She won’t long for wealth and fame just love and sympathy
    I don’t know where she lives maybe across the sea
    But the walls of Jericho can’t keep her away from me



CHORUS

Come Back Darling


  1. Tonight as I sit by my window
    I’m reading your letter so true
    I’m hoping to find it in your letter
    Where you say I’ll come back to you.

CHORUS:


Oh come back to me little darling
I miss you each day and each night
Oh come back to me little darling
Don’t leave me alone all my life


  1. I know I can never be happy
    No matter whatever I do
    I know it’s harsh and lonely without you
    Oh won’t you come back and be true.

CHORUS



  1. Oh what will I do without you
    My life is so lonely and blue
    No matter what happens, my darling
    I just can’t forget loving you.

CHORUS


Age


  1. I’ve been up and down and around and ‘round and back again
    I’ve been so many places I can’t remember where or when
    And my only boss is the clock on the wall and my only friend
    Never really was a friend at all

CHORUS:


Well I traded love for pennies and sold my soul for less
Lost my deals in that long tunnel of time
And I turned inside out and ‘round about and back again
Found myself right back where I started again.


  1. Once I had myself a million now I’ve only got a dime
    The difference don’t seem quite as bad today
    With a nickle or million I was searching all the time
    For something that I’ve never lost or left behind.

CHORUS



  1. And now I’m in my second circle and I’m heading for the top
    I’ve learned a lot of things along the way
    I’ll be careful while I’m climbing ‘cause it hurts a lot to drop
    When you’re down nobody gives a damn anyway.

CHORUS
CHORUS




Cora Is Gone

 


  1. The wind through the night is blowing so lonesome
    Singing to me a song
    A whippoorwill call is just a reminder
    Pretty girls have hearts made of stone

CHORUS:


I’ll wake with the blues at dawn
My darling Cora is gone
I don’t know why she told me goodbye
But my darling Cora is gone


  1. The ring that she wears I bought for her finger
    Purchased her raiment so fine
    Gave her my last green back dollar
    And now she’s left me behind

CHORUS



  1. Drifting along like a brush on a river
    Caring not where I roam
    Going to live in a deep forest
    Dark hollow will be my new home

CHORUS


The Old Home Town


  1. Tonight my heart is lonely for the folks back home
    Where I left my mother and daddy all alone
    There’s been a lot of changes since I been around
    I’d like to wander back to the old home town

CHORUS:


You’ll never miss the home folks until you’ve gone away
Then you’ll need a friend to help you every day
Then you’ll call on mother but she won’t be around
I’d like to wander back to the old home town


  1. I’ve searched this whole world over since I’ve been around
    I’ve never found a place just like the old home town
    If I could live life over I’d never roam around
    I’d like to wander back to the old home day

CHORUS


Talk It All Over With Him


  1. I’m gonna sit down and rest gently lean on His breast
    I’ll talk it all over with Him
    I’ll see my mother and dad truest friends I ever had
    I’ll talk it all over with Him

CHORUS:


I’m gonna sit, I’m gonna stand up, gonna walk all around
I’ll talk it all over with Him
I’ll meet old’ Peter and Paul but the best of it all
I’ll talk it all over with Him


  1. Up in that land of sweet rest with the good and the blessed
    I’ll talk it all over with Him
    And by my Savior’s dear side I will ever abide
    I’ll talk it all over with Him

CHORUS



  1. So many things in this land I shall ne’er understand
    I’ll talk it all over with Him
    I’ll still be true to my Lord as we live in accord
    I’ll talk it all over with Him

CHORUS


Head Over Heels


  1. I think I’ll go across the ocean
    If I don’t change my notion
    I’ve just got to forget you if I can

CHORUS:


I’m feeling so blue I don’t know what to do
’Cause I’m head over heels in love with you


  1. Every day is sad and lonely
    For I’m thinking of you only
    I just can’t sleep when I lay down

CHORUS



  1. Oh I’d like to be forgiven
    But this life ain’t worth living
    If have to sit and worry over you

CHORUS



  1. Oh the nights are long and dreary
    All I do is sit and worry
    I just can’t bear the thought of losing you

CHORUS


Nobody Loves Me

 


  1. Nobody loves me nobody cares
    If life is empty and full of tears
    I long for true love searched everywhere
    Nobody loves me nobody cares




  1. Searching for true love has been in vain
    Through years my heart has suffered with pain
    Life’s lonesome burden now I must bear
    Nobody loves me nobody cares




  1. Nights on my pillow I dream of you
    Through space I gaze at the stars above
    They seem to whisper from way up there
    Nobody loves me nobody cares




  1. A lonesome heart and a troubled mind
    In this old world now is all I find
    I look to heaven for I know there
    Someone will love me someone will care



When You Are Lonely

 


  1. Oh I’m thinking of you, little darling
    On the day that we first met
    And those words sweetheart that you told me
    I’m sure I’ll never forget



CHORUS:

Oh, someday, sweetheart, when you’re lonely


And have no one to care for you
Remember the heart you have broken
And the one that has loved you so true


  1. You told me that you always would love me
    That no one could ever come between
    But it seems to me you’ve forgotten
    All those things you told to me

CHORUS



  1. I’ll forget all those things that you told me
    And try to start our life anew
    But remember the heart you have broken
    And the one that has loved you so true

CHORUS


I Might Take You Back Again

 

CHORUS:



Go now don’t wait
Please don’t hesitate
Loving you was my great sin
And I might take you back again


  1. For a long time the world stood still
    I loved you then and I always will
    But to me you’ve been untrue
    There is nothing I can do

CHORUS



  1. Well here you are you’re back again
    I know that I just can’t win
    You broke my heart most every day
    And now you best be on your way

CHORUS


Lonesome Wind Blues
CHORUS:

I hear that wind a-blowing through the lonesome pine

And I know my love is gone too

I hear that wind a-blowing through the lonesome pine

That’s why I’m blue love, so blue


  1. She’s gone so far away that’s why I’m leaving

She’s left me here alone among the trees

And all that I have left is just a memory

And it always haunts me with a breeze
CHORUS


  1. I’ll leave today to try to find my darling

I don’t know where on earth she may be

I only know that I can’t live without her

Each night in dreams her face is all I see
CHORUS

Somehow Tonight
CHORUS:

Somehow tonight I feel lonely my darling


Somehow tonight I feel blue
Somehow tonight these tears of mine keep falling
Come back sweetheart and be true


  1. I thought you’re love was something I could treasure
    To brighten my pathway through the years
    Now all I can see is darkness in the future
    That’s why I long to have you near

CHORUS



  1. I never new what loneliness meant darling
    Until I watched you walk away
    I long to hear you whisper that you love me
    I can’t forget our happy days

CHORUS


Rock Hearts

 

CHORUS:



Rock hearts will break believe it my dear
And yours will break in two I fear
And when it does dear don’t run to me
For it will be too late you see



  1. Why did you break my heart and throw it down
    Why did you spread the news all over town
    Why did you make me your laughing stock
    Because you’ve got a heart of rock

CHORUS



  1. You didn’t break my heart by running round
    Another new love you have not found
    You only handed me back a lock
    You had around your heart of rock

CHORUS


Big Black Train
Well I’ve had the blues

But now they’re gone

I’m on a big black freight train

And I’m moving on




  1. I’m on a big black train and I’m moving on

I’m on a big black train and I’ll soon be gone

Oh this big black freight train, just keeps moving on




  1. If you want me baby, better get on the track

I got a one-way ticket and I won’t be back

Oh this big black freight train, it’s moving down the railroad track




  1. Well you cheated on me baby and you told me lies

You said that you was gonna laugh every time I cried

Oh that big black freight train telling you goodbye




  1. I’m on a big black train and I’m moving on

I’m on a big black train and I’ll soon be gone

Oh this big black freight train, it keeps moving on



Thinking About You

 


  1. Now as I sigh the hours away
    I think of love of yesterday
    Now I know she’s gone away
    She’s in heaven so they say

CHORUS:


Will the angels tell her for me
That my love will never die
Someday I’ll walk along beside her
On that golden way up there


  1. Now all my life I lived so gaily
    Until she had to go away
    Then she left me oh so lonely
    She lies at rest beneath the clay

CHORUS



  1. Each night I think about you dear
    I wonder if you’ll hold me then
    When I meet you up in heaven
    We’ll have life eternal there

CHORUS



Out In The Cold World


  1. Out in the cold world and far away from home
    some mother’s boy is wandering all alone.
    No one to guide him or keep his footsteps right
    Some mother’s boy is homeless tonight.



CHORUS:
Bring back to me my wandering boy
For there is no other who’s left to give me joy
Tell him that his mother with faded cheeks and hair
Is at the old home place awaiting him there


  1. Out in the hallway then stands a vacant chair
    And an old pair of shoes he used to wear
    Empty is the cradle he used to love so well
    Oh how I miss him no tongue can tell.

CHORUS



  1. Well I remember those parting words he said
    Well meet up yonder where tears are never shed
    In that land of sunshine, away from toil and care
    When life is over, I’ll meet you up there

CHORUS



On The Old Kentucky Shore


  1. I walked out to the graveyard
    Down by the church of God
    I looked upon those marbles there
    That would soon be covered with sod



CHORUS:

Up along the Ohio River


Over on the old Kentucky shore
Once dwelled a fair young maiden
Now there’s a crepe upon her door


  1. The angels took my darling
    God needed the one I loved
    I reached the old Kentucky shore today
    I’ll make my plans and meet her up above

CHORUS



  1. The last words that my darling said
    Was tell the one I love goodbye
    I would like to see him before I go
    But I’ll meet him in the sky

CHORUS



Preaching, Praying, Singing
CHORUS:

Preaching, praying, singing everywhere

Shouting the praises of his love and care

All of God’s children seem to gather there

Preaching, praying, singing out on the public square


  1. I was a stranger there intent upon my way

But when I saw the crowd, I had the urge to stay

All of God’s children seem to gather there

Preaching, praying, singing out on the public square
CHORUS


  1. I felt so much at home amid the happy throng

That came from far and near to praise His name in song

To lay their burdens down, forget their every care

And have and old time meeting out on the public square
CHORUS


  1. Now as I journey on, think back on the day

I am convinced within, these folks have found the way

To put their hearts in song, just pray an earnest prayer

And leave the door bells ringing down on the public square
CHORUS
Preaching, praying, singing out on the public square


Someone Took My Place With You

 


  1. Now someone took my place with you
    Now you tell me we are through
    Someone broke my heart in two
    When they took my place with you



Now someone left me here to cry
And with each day that passes by
Now I’m found here alone and blue
‘Cause someone took my place with you


  1. In days to come I know you’ll find
    When you’ve left me here behind
    Someday I’m sure that you will find
    You wrecked your life as well as mine

When it’s too late to make amends


I’m sure you’ll pay the price and then
Now you’ll be there alone and blue
‘Cause someone took my place with you
Now someone left me here to cry
And with each day that passes by
Now I’m found here alone and blue
‘Cause someone took my place with you


My Home’s Across The Blue Ridge Mountains

 

CHORUS:



My home’s across the blue ridge mountains
My home’s across the blue ridge mountains
My home’s across the blue ridge mountains
And I never expect to see you anymore


  1. How can I keep from crying?
    How can I keep from crying?
    How can I keep from crying?
    For I never expect to see you anymore

CHORUS



  1. Oh how I hate to leave you
    Oh how I hate to leave you
    Oh how I hate to leave you
    For I never expect to see you anymore

CHORUS



  1. So goodbye my little darling
    So goodbye my little darling
    So goodbye my little darling
    I never expect to see you anymore

CHORUS


Along About Daybreak


  1. When we were young and we thought we loved each other
    But you didn’t love me I guess
    For you’ve gone and you’ve found another
    Everything to you is regret

CHORUS:


This morning along about daybreak
You quarreled at me the whole night through
I know it’s not too late for your sake dear
But for me I will always be blue


  1. Oh I’m weary my darling weary
    Just to know your love’s gone cold
    For without you life will be so dreary
    We’ll need each other when we grow old

CHORUS



  1. Oh sweetheart be good to our babies
    And I want you to teach them to pray
    Tell them to say a little prayer for their daddy
    Where he will be no one can say

 

CHORUS



Sweet Sunny South


  1. Take me back to the place where I first saw the light
    To the sweet sunny south take me home
    Where the mockingbirds sing me to sleep in the night
    Oh why was I tempted to roam




  1. I think with regret of the dear home I left
    Of the warm hearts that sheltered me there
    Of my wife and my family of whom I’m bereft
    For the old place again do I sigh




  1. Take me back to the place where the orange trees grow
    To my home in the evergreen shade
    Where the flowers from the river’s green margins did grow
    And spread their sweet scent through the glade




  1. Oh the path to our cottage they say has grown green
    And the place is quite lonely around
    And I know that the faces and forms that I loved
    Now lie ‘neath the cold mossy ground




  1. Take me back to the place where my little ones sleep
    For boyhood lies very close by
    O’er the graves of my loved ones I long for to weep
    and among them to rest when I die




  1. But yet I return to the place of my birth
    For the children have played around the door
    And I know that no matter how long I may live
    They’ll echo their footsteps no more
