and lest I foget to toss in my usual recommendation for a Louvin brothers song:
MY BABY'S GONE
Words and music by Hazel Houser
As recorded by the Louvin Brothers, 1958.
CHORUS: Hold back the rushing minutes; make the wind lie still.
Don't let the moonlight shine across the lonely hill.
Dry all the raindrops and hold back the sun.
My world has ended; my baby's gone.
1. The milkman whistles softly as he comes up to my door.
The mailman brings the letters by just like he did before.
They seem so busy all day long, as though there's nothing wrong.
Don't they know the world has ended? My baby's gone. CHORUS
2. I wake up sometimes in the night and realize you're gone,
And then I toss upon my bed and wait for day to come.
I try to tell my lonely heart it must go on alone,
But it cries: "The world has ended; my baby's gone." CHORUS
