                     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

2. 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

3. 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




                                      1
               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

2. 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

3. 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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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

5. 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

6. 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

7. 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

8. 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

9. 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




                                     3
                    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

2. 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




                                       4
                              Model Church
Well wife I’ve found a model church      I tell you wife it did me good
And worshipped there today               To sing those hymns once more
It made me think of the good old times   I felt just like some wrecked marine
Before my hair was gray                  Who gets a glimpse of shore

The meetinghouse was finer built         It made want to lay aside
Than they were years ago                 This weather beaten form
But I found out when I went in           And anchor in that blessed port
It was not built for show                Forever from the storm

The sexton did not sit me down           Dear wife the toil will soon be o’er
Away back by the door                    The victory soon be won
He knew that I was old and deaf          The shining strand is just ahead
And saw that I was poor                  Our race is nearly run

He must have been a Christian man        We’re near to Canaan’s happy shore
He led me boldly through                 Our hopes are bright and fair
The long aisle of that crowded church    Thank God we’ll never sin again
To find a pleasant pew                   There’ll be no sorrow there

I wish you’d heard the singing, wife     There’ll be no sorrow there
it had the old town ring                 In heaven above
The preacher said with trumpet voice     Where all is love
Let all the people sing                  There’ll be no sorrow there

Oh Coronation was the tune
The music upward roared
I thought I heard the angel choir
Strike on their harps of gold




                                         5
         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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       6
                         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

2. 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

3. 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




                                        7
                                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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       8
                         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

2. 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




                                      9
                      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

2. 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

3. 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




                                      10
                          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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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




                                     11
                  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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       12
                 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

2. 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




                                     13
                    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

2. 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




                                      14
                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)




                                         15
                           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

2. 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

3. 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




                                            16
                    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

2. 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




                                     17
                                    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

2. 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

                        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

2. 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




                                       19
                        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

2. 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

3. 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

2. 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

3. 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

        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

2. 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

3. 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




                                        22
                 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

2. 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

3. 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




                                      23
                            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

2. 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

3. 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




                                         24
                     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

2. 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

3. 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




                                        25
                 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

2. 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




                                      26
                            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

2. 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




                                         27
                           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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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

5. 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




                                      28
                        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

2. 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




                                      29
                          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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       30
                    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




                                       31
                            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

2. 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

3. 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




                                     32
       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

2. 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




                                      33
                    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

2. 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




                                      34
                        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

2. 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

3. 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




                                      35
                                      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.

2. 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

3. 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

                                        36
                               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

2. 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

3. 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




                                        37
                       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

2. 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




                                      38
                    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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       39
                             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

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

CHORUS

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

CHORUS

4. 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




                                          40
                          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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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

2. 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

3. 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




                                         42
                 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

2. 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




                                           43
                        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

2. 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




                                        44
                          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

2. 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




                                      45
                              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

2. 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




                                       46
                             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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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

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

2. 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

3. 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

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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       49
                  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

2. 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

3. 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




                                         50
                   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

2. 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

3. 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




                                       51
             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

2. 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




                                     52
    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

2. 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

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

CHORUS




                                       53
                       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

2. 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

3. 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




                                         54
                         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

2. 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

3. 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

4. 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

5. 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

6. 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




                                      55
