Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cherry River Line lyrics
The only verse I can hear clearly in that sound sample is this:

I wish to the Lord I'd never been born
Or died when I was young
[And never] looked into your two little eyes
Or listened to your lying tongue.

This is a floater verse, which has appeared, with minor variations, in these songs:

44 GUN
ALL THE GOOD TIMES (ARE PAST AND GONE)
FALSE TRUE LOVE
I FALL ON MY KNEES
I TRULY UNDERSTAND (THAT YOU LOVE ANOTHER MAN)
IN THE PINES
LONG LONESOME ROAD
ROCKY MOUNTAIN SIDE
ROUSTABOUT
WINTER'S NIGHT
WISH TO THE LORD I'D NEVER BEEN BORN
