Blue Eyes

Blue Eyes
(Carter Family)

'Twould been better for us both had we never
In this wide and wicked world had never met,
But the pleasure we both seemed to gather
I'm sure, love, I'll never forget.

Cho: Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
     Who is sailing far over the sea.
     I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
     And I wonder if he ever thinks of me.

Oh, you told me once, dear, that you loved me;
You voiwed that we never would part.
But a link in the chain has been broken
Leavin' me with a sad and aching heart.

When the cold, cold grave shall enclose me
Will you come near and shed just one tear?
Will you say to the strangers around you
A poor heart you have broken lies here?

note: If you think that the tune is Honky-Tonk Angels,
     you're right RG
