There you go.

One
 
THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN

CHORUS (after each verse):
LOVE IS A PRECIOUS THING I'M TOLD
BURNS JUST LIKE WEST VIRGINIA COAL
BUT WHEN THE FIRE DIES DOWN IT'S COLD
THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN

I HAVE SEEN SNOW THAT FELL IN MAY
I HAVE SEEN RAIN ON CLOUDLESS DAYS
SOME THINGS ARE ALWAYS BOUND TO CHANGE
THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN

YOU SAY THIS LIFE IS NOT YOUR LOT
I CAN'T BE SOMETHING THAT I'M NOT
YOU CAN'T STOKE A FIRE THAT WE AIN'T GOT
THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN

THERE COMES A TIME IN EVERY LIFE
WHEN THERE ARE NO MORE TEARS TO CRY
YOU MUST LEAVE SOMETHING DEAR BEHIND
THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN

(add this half verse onto verse 3)
THERE IS A LESSON I HAVE LEARNED...
THERE AIN'T NO ASH THAT BURNS

Well, nine years later, I've just heard There Ain't No Ash Will Burn performed, and wonder if there is any tablature or sheet music available? The links in the previous post are no longer active. Can anyone help?

Hi, Linda -
I've updated the links above as well as I can. Does that help? The best recording I found was by Alice Gerrard.

-Joe-


For the record, here are the lyrics from the Gerrard recording:
    THERE AIN'T NO ASH WILL BURN
    (Walt Aldridge)


    CHORUS:
           Love is a precious thing, I'm told
           Burns just like West Virginia coal
           But when the fire burns down, it's cold
           There ain't no ash will burn.

    I have seen rain on cloudless days
    I have seen snow that fell in May
    Some things are always bound to change
    There ain't no ash will burn

           Love is a precious thing, I'm told
           Burns just like West Virginia coal
           But when the fire burns down, it's cold
           There ain't no ash will burn.

    In every life there comes a time
    When there are no more tears to cry
    We must leave something here behind
    There ain't no ash will burn

           Love is a precious thing, I'm told
           Burns just like West Virginia coal
           But when the fire burns down, it's cold
           There ain't no ash will burn.

    You say this life is not your lot
    Well, I can't be something that I'm not
    Can't stoke a fire that we ain't got
    There ain't no ash will burn

           Love is a precious thing, I'm told
           Burns just like West Virginia coal
           But when the fire burns down, it's cold
           There ain't no ash will burn.

    This is one lesson I have learned,
    There ain't no ash will burn.

(as recorded by Alice Gerrard)
There's also a very nice recording by Lydia, Emily, and Claude Martin
Lots of recordings at YouTube. I think you'll do a good job with it, Linda. I'm looking forward to hearing it.
-Joe-
