Subject: 'in the cold grey walls of a prison

I don't know if this is the title or not .The only part of this song I remember are these few lines.
In the cold grey walls of a prison,
alone and dying there
a woman called out to her lover
but there was nobody to hear

She cried out 'put your arms around me
hold me close before I die
and let the warm sweet tears from your pretty blue eyes
melt this pain in my cold cold heart'
Does anyone remember this song? I would like the title and the rest of the lyrics. I think this may be a tough one. Thanks for any help I can get. Lillian

Well, I found this, but no information about the source. Apparently recorded or written by somebody named Jerry Stensrud - the lyrics are from a Website that is apparently operated by Stensrud - (click).

COLD GREY WALLS

In the cold grey walls of a prison ---wracked with pain and fever she laid
A woman who calls for her loved one ---As over and over she prayed
Put your arms around me ---Hold me close before we part
Let the warm sweet tears from your blue eyes ---Ease the pain in my cold, cold heart

They searched through her few possessions ---For the name that she tried to call
But there wasn't a name nor a picture ---No letters, no nothing at all
Put your arms around me---Hold me close before we part
Let the warm sweet tears from your blue eyes---Ease the pain in my cold, cold heart

She died in the night in that prison ---With no one to answer her screams
But I hear my name and it haunts me ---As she screams in the night in my dreams
Put your arms around me ---Hold me close before we part
Let the warm sweet tears from your blue eyes---Ease the pain in my cold, cold heart

Thank You, I have searching for the words to this song for years.
Is it possible to hear it sung by Hank Snow?

Hank Snow sings only 2 verses, and they are a bit different:


PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME
As sung by Hank Snow on "The Classic Decades: Hank Snow Vol. 2" (2012)

In the cold gray walls of a prison, wracked with pain and fever she lay,
A woman who called for her loved one, and over and over she said:
"Put your arms around me; hold me close before we part.
Let the warm sweet tears from your blue eyes ease the pain in my cold, cold heart."

They searched through her few possessions for the name she was trying to call,
But there wasn't a name or a picture; no letter, nothing at all.
"Put your arms around me; lay your cheek against my own,
While I fall asleep, my darlin', to awake in the great unknown."

All I know is that it was listed on Spotify.

Spotify is a program that allows you to listen to many recordings for free. You have to download the program from their website:
