LONESOME RIVER
(Stanley Bros)

I sit here alone on the banks of the river
The lonesome wind blows the water rolls high
I hear a voice calling out there in the darkness
I sit here alone too lonesome to cry

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
I sit on the shore to grieve and to cry
The woman I love she left me this morning
With no one to love or kiss me goodnight

We met there one night by the banks of the river
Sat there holding hands and making our vows
Swore we'd never part and be happy together
But a new love she's found she's gone from me now

Right one? All of it?

Sorcha,

Yes, that's the right one. I'll listen tonight to see if that's all of it. Thank you. Actually, I've been listening a cover by "Here Today" with a pre New Country Star Vince Gill doing the vocals. It's a very nice version.

Vince Gill is not new, Sorcha, he's been around since the class of 1989. Bob

53,

That was me, not Sorcha. I meant New Country, you know 50's Rock & Roll with Cowboy hats that Nashville is churning out now.
