Subject: I stilll miss someone
From: John W.
Date: 20 Apr 99 - 08:08 PM

Anyone know the words to that Johnny Cash song "But I still miss someone" ? Something like, At my door the leaves are falling da da da da but I still miss someone. Oh I never got over her blue eyes. I see them everywhere...

Subject: Lyr Add: I STILL MISS SOMEONE (Johnny Cash)
From: Mark Roffe
Date: 20 Apr 99 - 08:18 PM

I STILL MISS SOMEONE
Words and music by Johnny Cash and Roy Cash, Jr.
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "The Fabulous Johnny Cash" (1958)

At my door the leaves are fallin'; a cold wild wind will come.
Sweethearts walk by together, and I still miss someone.

I go out on a party and look for a little fun,
But I find a darkened corner 'cause I still miss someone.

    No, I never got over those blue eyes; I see them ev'rywhere.
    I miss those arms that held me when all the love was there.

I wonder if she's sorry for leaving what we'd begun.
There's someone for me somewhere and I still miss someone.

[repeat bridge and last verse]




Note from Joe Offer: Mark's lyrics match this Johnny Cash Recording exactly: Later recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-Sj75QusZo

Great song is right. Thanks for posting it Mark. I use to do it, but I just forgot about it. That's too good a song to just leave laying around. Wasn't it written by Jethro Burns? TequilaRon

I found one of my (very) old song lists a week or two ago, and this song was on it. I thought, Of course! -- I used to love that song, how could I forget about it? So have started singng it again. There was a tribute to Johnny Cash on TV on Saturday 4/17, I was at a Jean Ritchie concert and didn't get home that day to tape it, but I figured I'd get out my J. C. albums and give him my own tribute. I still have a 45 of "I Walk The Line."

COWPIE has the Cashes listed as the authors...once had a Linda Ronstadt album, on which she sang it. God, I loved that girl. Who would have ever left her? She wouldn't have missed me, cuz I'd be at her door every day.

'Course then she'd of pulled a Dan Hicks on me, by asking the musical question: "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away?"

The Cash special was really great, and avoided all the smarmy tribute-type cliches. Someone sang "Miss Someone", but damned if I can remember who.

TNT would always mention one Wyclef Jean in their promos. Not being up on current music, I wondered who in hell that was. Well, he was probably the highlight of the show, singing "Delia's Gone", as straight country blues, with a little rap thrown in. That combination may sound horrid, but it actually worked quite well.

I'm looking for the music and lyrics for a song that has the following lines:

Oh I never got over those blue eyes Still I see them every where I miss the arms that held me, etc.

Subject: Lyr Add: I STILL MISS SOMEONE (from Joan Baez)
From: Amos
Date: 21 Feb 00 - 02:14 AM

Joan Baez sang it in one her first three LPs, circa 1963.

Outside my door the leaves are falling
A cold hard wind comes down
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

CHO: 'Cuz I never got over those blue eyes
I see them everywhere.
I miss those arms around me
When all our love was there

I wonder if he 's sorry
For ending what we begun
There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

Cho.

I don't find in the DT, for whatever reason -- the above is from memory.

Its by Johnny Cash. I heard Katherine Wheatley and Cate Friesen sing it last Friday night. I think there might be a third verse.

Yes, there is a third verse - which actually comes between the first and second verses listed in Amos' post.

I go out to a party

To try and find some fun

But I wind up in a corner

'Cause I still miss someone.

You can find Johnny Cash's version on his "Greatest Hits" package on Columbia. (LP, that is.)

One of the first tear-jerkers I ever learned to play.

I'm glad its by Cash not Baez...cause then it definitely ain't about Bob Dylan. (I guess)

Side 2, Track 1 of Joan Baez/5, an album from 1964. It's on page 125 of Rise Up Singing, where it says, incorrectly, that it's on the Joan Baez album One Day At A Time.

Let’s get the correct lyrics into the DT. Folk process hard at work here! Never heard Baez sing it, I don’t know if she modified the Cash words*, but posters have contributed half-remembered lines ... (*aside from the gender pronouns). Beautiful song, and today “At my door the leaves are falling, the cold wild winds will come ...”

Let's get the correct lyrics into a thread.
The powers that be have decided that the DT wouldn't be corrected. Generally, people should find the correct versions of songs in threads.

There's a thread with lyrics here.
(I don't have a clue why random other songs got transferred into it.)

Yeah, Jeri, it took me a while to figure out why such a variety of songs ended up in that other thread, but I can tell from the message titles that most probably they were initiated in that thread - I think it was a classic case of major thread drift. Somebody brought up the Johnny McEvoy recording of the song, and it went off on a tangent from there. I think we'll let this thread be the "origins" thread. I did a bit of a cleanup on the other thread so people will know what it's about, and I made sure we had correct and verified lyrics right at the top of this thread. That's why I had it marked for cleanup.

Here is the Johnny McEvoy recording of the song: -Joe-

Thanks, Jeri, Joe ! An old favourite of mine, from well-worn vinyl, which I sang with my late brother Craig all the time. Mudcat & its contributors are a true treasure [above the BS line at any rate] and model of online sharing.
