Way back when I was 13 years old (1964), I was given a record player and a bunch of 45 rpm records by an older acquaintance. One of the records contained a country song titled 'Cold, Cold Grave' which had a very haunting melody that I have never forgotten. I cannot remember the name of the artist, and I have never been able to track down the lyrics to that song.
The first stanza went somthing like:
"Restless heart, all made of clay.
Bless the part, in life you play.
What lies ahead, no man can say...
but a broken heart
and a cold, cold grave...
Just a broken heart
and a cold, cold grave."
Does anybody remember hearing this song or know who wrote/sang it? It was probably recorded in the mid-fifties to early sixties.
