I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes

This song is by Ralph Stanley and appears on the album A Distant Land to Roam: Songs of the Carter Family (2006).

Would've been better for us both had we never
In this wide wicked world had never met
For the pleasure we've both known together
I'm sure, love, I'll never forget

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Who is sailing far over the sea
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me

Oh, you told me once, dear, that you loved me
And you said that we never would part
But a link in the chain has been broken
Leavin' me with a sad and aching heart

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Who is sailing far over the sea
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me

When the cold, cold grave shall enclose me
Will you come there and shed just one tear
And say to the strangers around you
A poor heart you have broken lies here

Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Who is sailing far over the sea
Oh, I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
And I wonder if she ever thinks of me
