Subject: Darling Corey Is Gone lyrics
From: GUEST,Jim
Date: 14 Jul 08 - 12:57 PM

I'm trying to find the lyrics to My Darling Corey Is Gone. Digitrad and Google both give me Wake Up Darlin' Corey, which is not the song I'm after.
My Darling Corey Is Gone is a bluegras waltz. Can anyone help me?

I know the song but I can only recall a few words:

Alone with the blues at dawn
My darlin' Corey has gone.
I don't know why she kissed me goodbye
But my darlin' Corey is gone.

dark hollow will be my dear home.

Sorry. Hope others know the rest.

Is it Cora Is Gone, perhaps?

See this thread.

Yes, I think "Cora is gone" must be the song in question.

I have those words (which ClaireBear provides) scribbled in an old exercise book - I learned it from a Flatt & Scruggs album, and it is credited to ODELL McLEOD.

Cora is Gone

Winds through the night blowing so lonesome,
Singing to me a song.
A whip-poor-will call is just a reminder,
Pretty girls have hearts made of stone.

(Chorus)
    Away with the blues at dawn,
    My darling Cora is gone.
    I don't know why she told me good-bye,
    But my darling Cora is gone.

The ring that she wears I bought for her finger,
Purchased a ring so fine.
Gave her my last greenback dollar,
And now she's left me behind.

(Chorus)

Drifting along like brush in the river,
Knowing not where I roam.
Going to live in the deep forest,
Dark hollows will be my new home.

That is from

Chorus Line 1: I WAKE with the blues at Dawn

Verse 2 line 2: I purchased HER RAIMENTS so fine

Verse 3 line:   Brush ON the river
                CARING not where I roam
                I'M GOING DOWN to live in deep forest
                Dark HOLLOW will be my new home

Hoot - call me pedantic
