Oh, the rain is slowly fallin' And my heart is so sore Six more miles and leave my darling Never on this earth to meet no more Six more miles to the graveyard Six more miles, long and sad Six more miles and leave my darling Leave the best friend I ever had Oh, I hear the train a-comin' Bringin' my darlin' back home Six more miles to the graveyard And I'll be left here all alone Six more miles to the graveyard Six more miles, long and sad Six more miles and leave my darling Leave the best friend I ever had

As I went down for to take a little walk I came across that Wild Bill Jones He was walking and talking by my true lover's side And I bid him to leave her alone He said, "My age is 21, too old to be controlled." I pulled my revolver from my side and I destroyed that poor boy's soul He reeled and he staggered and he fell to the ground And then he gave one dying moan He wrapped his arms around my little girl’s neck Saying, "Honey won’t you take me home?" So put them handcuffs on me boys and lead me to that freight car gate For I have no friends or relations there no one for to go my bail Pass around that old long-neck bottle and we’ll all go on a spree For today saw the last of Wild Bill Jones tomorrow’ll be the last of me

You done me wrong and you left home You broke my heart and each vow   I was right by you my love was true So you can go on your way now   All through the years I have shed tears  Tried to keep loves plans and our vows But now I'll stay out of your way Yes you can go on your way now You trifled round all over town You've had your fun dear and how                       It didn't brother you cause I was blue (Katie stay up) so So you can go on your way now All through the years I have shed tears  Tried to keep loves plans and our vows But now I'll stay out of your way Yes you can go on your way now

You've already put big old tears in my eyes Must you throw dirt in my face What is it that brings you to this part of town Curiosity conscience or fate I know it's not love for I once gave you love and all you gave me was the gate I got a feeling you've come back to just rub it in and to really put me in my place You've already put big old tears in my eyes Must you throw dirt in my face Must you keep telling me you've got a new love I don't need you to remind me Must you keep telling me that I look so lonesome and that my better days are behind me Must you keep showing me pictures of him and boasting of his warm embrace You've already put big old tears in my eyes must you throw dirt in my face You've already left me and broken my heart Told me how much you don't want me Believe me I'm happier when we're apart Why must you come back now and haunt me Must you keep showing me pictures of him and boasting of his warm embrace You've already put big old tears in my eyes must you throw dirt in my face

And so you have come back to me Andy say the old love's growing yet You've tried through all these weary years You've tried too vainly to forget No, no I cannot take your hand God never gives us back our youth The loving heart you slighted then Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth Farewell, farewell now we must part You never meant to do me wrong God sent this anguish to my heart To teach me to be brave and strong No, no I cannot take your hand God never gives us back our youth The loving heart you slighted then Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth Farewell, I think I love you yet As friend to friend, God bless you dear And guide you through these weary years To where the skies are always clear No, no I cannot take your hand God never gives us back our youth The loving heart you slighted then Was yours, my friend, in perfect truth

I don't know, I don't know where i'll go or what I'll do Makes no difference what I do without you I love you my darling but I'll try and let you be Goodbye, it's the last you'll see of me I found a bluebird high on the mountainside the little bird would sing its little song So I'll sigh, I'll cry, I'll even want to die For the one I love is gone

Somehow we’ll find our way over the mountain And down the valley, the other side We may grow weary and even stop trusting In the star above for a guide When we reach the valley in due spell What will I find? What will I find? Will our weaknesses devour us Will we be free from the echoes in our mind? When we reach the valley in due spell What will I find? What will I find? Will our weaknesses devour us Will we be free from the echoes in our mind? Somehow we’ll find our way over the mountain And down the valley, the other side We may grow weary and even stop trusting In the star above for a guide

Door don't knock, phone don't ring Can't keep my mind on anything Clouds don't roll, rain don't come Since my baby been gone Six long nights with you on my mind Drown you out with bottles of wine It ain't right, I'm not that strong Since my baby been gone Nights so long, can't find the dawn Since my baby been gone

I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that I've spent More time with my back to the wall and I've picked up A couple a more years on you babe and that's all Saying Goodbye girl don't ever come easy at all But you got to fly cause you're hearin' them young eagles call Someday when you're older, you'll smile at a man strong and tall And say I got a couple more years on you babe, that's all Now I've walked a couple more roads than you babe and that's all And I'm tired of running while you're only learning to crawl And you're going somewhere but I've been to somewhere And found it was nowhere at all and I picked up A couple more years on you babe and that's all I've got a couple more years on you babe and that's all I've had more chances to fly and more places to fall It's not that I'm wiser, it's just that I've spent More time with my back to the wall and I've picked up A couple a more years on you babe and that's all

Blue Days 03:51
Don't worry about me, I'm gonna be fine. I did say that there would be blue days ahead I was talking about the sky. The last thing you ever did tell me That you need to feel the wind. Your forehead, so damp and so lovely Close those eyes and you are still near. The trees I turn to in autumn, Fireballs before life recedes. The colours of my love are always too bright Just before somebody leaves. Don't worry about me, I'm gonna be fine. I did say that there would be blue days ahead I was talking about the sky.

Our Darlin' wandered far away while she was out at play Lost in the woods she couldn't hear a sound She was our darlin' girl the sweetest thing in all the world We searched for her but she couldn't be found I heard the screams of our little girl far away Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood But I reached our darlin' girl too late Oh I began to sigh I knew that soon she'd have to die For the snake was warnin' me close by I held her close to my face she said Daddy kill that snake It's getting' dark tell Mommy goodbye I heard the screams of our little girl far away Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood But I reached our darlin' girl too late To all parents I must say don't let your children stray away They need your love to guide them along Oh God I pray we'll see out darlin' some day It seems I still can hear her voice around our home I heard the screams of our little girl far away Hurry daddy there's an awful dreadful snake I ran as fast as I could through the dark and dreary wood But I reached our darlin' girl too late
