Where The Silvery Colorado Wend It's Way

The Carter Family

exibições 11

The twilight softly gathered round my home among the hills
And all nature soon will settle down to rest
While I sit and sadly ponder and my heart with longing fills
As I often think of one that I love best

We were wedded in the springtime
And our hearts, they knew no pain
Fair nature seemed to smile on us that day
Now she sleeps beneath the lilacs
And she'll ne'er come back again
Where the silver Colorado wends its way

There's a sob on every breeze
And a sigh comes from the trees
And the mockingbirds, they sing a sadder way
For the flowers creep no more
'Round my cheerless cabin door
Where the silver Colorado wends its way

The silver snow is gleaming on your distant mountainside
Where often used to wander Nell and I
And the birds are singing gaily in the valley far below
Where I long some day to lay me down and die

Then our lives were gay and happy in the shadow of the hills
My heart beats fonder for her day by day
And I feel her presence near me as I sit alone tonight
Where the silver Colorado wends its way

There's a sob on every breeze
And a sigh comes from the trees
And the mockingbirds, they sing a sadder way
For the flowers creep no more
'Round my cheerless cabin door
Where the silver Colorado wends its way
