Candy Kisses

Candy kisses wrapped in paper
Mean more to you than any of mine
Candy kisses wrapped in paper
You'd rather have them any old time
 
You don't mean it when you whisper
Those sweet love words in my ear
Candy kisses wrapped in paper
Mean more to you than mine do, dear
 
I built a castle out of dreams, dear
I thought that you were building too
Now my castles all have fallen
And I am left alone and blue
 
Once my heart was filled with gladness
Now there's sadness, only tears
Candy kisses wrapped in paper
Mean more to you than mine do, dear

Lover, Lover

Who can I count on, if I can't count on you?
Who can I turn to, if I can't turn to you?
Who can I cling to, if I can't cling to you?
Who can I sing to, if I can't sing to you?
 
Lover, you've left me alone in a world with no gladness
I'm all alone in a world where there's nothing but sadness
Lover, I pray that the Angel of Mercy will find me
And take away all of the pain and the chains that bind me
 
Lover, lover, come back to me
 
Thoughts that I shouldn't keep, thoughts that invade my sleep
You with another man, has numbed my brain
My heart is running wild, it's acting like a child
Jealousy runs so deep inside my veins
 
Lover, you've left me alone in a world with no gladness
I'm all alone in a world where there's nothing but sadness
Lover, I pray that the Angel of Mercy will find me
And take away all of the pain and the chains that bind me
 
Lover, lover, come back to me
Come back to me

Love is a Hurting Thing

Hung around too long
Why, I can't explain
Should be glad you're gone
Love's a hurting game
 
Don't know why it happened
Who's to blame
Only know I'm cryin'
Love's a hurting game
 
If I seem bitter
Please don't condemn
I keep remembering
What might have been
 
Don't know why it happened
Or who's to blame
Only know I'm cryin'
Love's a hurting game
 
Just let the teardrops
Fall where they may
What does it matter anyway?
 
Don't know why it happened
Or who's to blame
Only know I'm cryin'
Love's a hurting game

All the World is Lonely Now

Yesterday, you said you loved me
But today you say it's over now
Why did you go away and leave me?
All the world is lonely now
 
Don't tell me that you'd love another
And that you've broken every vow
'Cause I don't want to live without you
All the world is lonely now
 
I've tried so hard to make you happy
With love your heart would not allow
It hurts to know you'll never love me
All the world is lonely now
 
Goodbye, good luck, and may God bless you
I'll try to get along somehow
I know I'll never love another
All the world is lonely now

This Cold War With You

The sun goes down and leaves me feeling blue
The iron curtain falls on this cold war with you
Though you won't speak, and I won't speak, that's true
Two stubborn people with a cold war to go through
 
Why, oh why, should love ever come to couples like you and me,
Whose cold, cold wars are never done ,and whose hearts just can't be free?
Though you won't speak, and I won't speak, that's true
Two stubborn people with a cold war to go through (x2)

Another Day Has Gone By

You wake up in the mornin'
And before you can realize
Another day has passed you by
You get your poor heart broke
And before you can turn around
The evenin' sun has just gone down
 
It seems like it's this way most every day
Why fight it, you can't save it
You seem to throw time away (x2)
 
It seems like time stands still
And before you can tell
It seems to start right back again
Take notice and you'll see
Time is closin' in on me
It's almost time to say goodbye
 
It seems like it's this way most every day
Why fight it, you can't save it
You seem to throw time away

I'll Have to Make Some Changes

Well, I've got to forget you if I'm goin' to survive
You're memory's slowly killin' me, it's killin' me alive
Well, you're too much woman to forget in just a day or two
And I'll have to make some changes
If I'm gonna get over you
 
I've gotta try and love someone
Who doesn't look like you
Who doesn't do love's little things
The way we used to do
 
Well, I'm a-lookin' for a way out of this prison that we built
This kinda life is filled with heartaches, memories and guilt
Well, I've gotta smother all the things that make me think of you
And I'll have to make some changes
If I'm gonna get over you
 
I've gotta try and love someone
Who doesn't look like you
Who doesn't do love's little things
The way we used to do
 
Well, I'm a-lookin' for a way out of this prison that we built
This kinda life is filled with heartaches, memories and guilt
Well, I've gotta smother all the things that make me think of you
And I'll have to make some changes
If I'm gonna get over you
 
Yes, I'll have to make some changes
If I'm gonna get over you

A Tree In the Meadow

There's a tree in the meadow
With a stream passing by
Carved upon that tree I see
'I love you 'til I die'
 
I'll always remember
The love in your eyes
The day I carved upon that tree
'I love you 'til I die'
 
Further on down lovers lane
A silhouette I see
I know you're kissing someone else
I wish that it were me
 
I'll always remember
The love in your eyes
The day I carved upon that tree
'I love you 'til I die'
 
[The last 2 verses are repeated]

Tie Your Dreams to Mine

Tie your dreams to mine, see how high we can climb
Together, we can rise above it all
One step at a time, leave the world behind
If you'll tie your dreams to mine
 
If we spend our lives tryin' to make it on our own
Our dreams are bound to come undone
When storm clouds gather, you need someone to lean on
Two hearts are stronger than one
 
Tie your dreams to mine, see how high we can climb
Together, we can rise above it all
One step at a time, leave the world behind
If you'll tie your dreams to mine
 
It's a crazy world and it would be so easy
For love to get scattered in the wind
But we'll stand tall and if our dreams should fall
Side by side, we'll build them back again
 
Tie your dreams to mine, see how high we can climb
Together, we can rise above it all
One step at a time, leave the world behind
If you'll tie your dreams to mine (x2)

You Won't Have Her Long

You didn't have to have your friends to tell me
That the love she once had for me is gone
They say she's yours, and for a while she will be
You've got her now, but you won't have her long
 
Don't talk too loud, her love is imitation
Don't walk too proud, for soon you'll walk alone
You're happy now, but soon they'll hear you saying:
'You've got her now, but you won't have her long'
 
If you think you own the world, you're only dreamin'
And you'll wake up soon and find your dream is gone
You'll find, to her, your heart is just a plaything
You've got her now, but you won't have her long
 
Don't talk too loud, her love is imitation
Don't walk too proud, for soon you'll walk alone
You're happy now, but soon they'll hear you saying:
'You've got her now, but you won't have her long'

Holding on to You

I shouldn't think about you
And forget we ever met
I know these are the things
That I should do
 
But I never was too smart, I guess
At least it seems that way
'Cause now I feel this memory
And it's holding on to you
 
Just when I think I've crossed that bridge
That's when you cross my mind
That little memory's fightin' me
It's with me all the time
 
Oh, I guess it takes a little more
Of what I'm going through
'Cause now I feel this memory
And it's holdin' on to you
 
Holdin' on to memories
Ain't the smartest way, I know
I still have these memories
And they won't let me go
 
I guess it takes a little more
Of what I'm going through
'Cause now I feel this memory
And it's holdin' on to you

Late Great Lover

Before I met you, I used to get around
And I could have most any girl in any town
But when I fell for you, all my playboy days were through
You sure knew just how to tear my playhouse down
 
Just call me the late and great lover
Since I lost you, I could never love another
I met my Waterloo when I fell in love with you
Just call me the late and great lover
 
That was a fateful day when I laid eyes on you
I didn't know that you were a great lover, too
And then you said goodbye with a twinkle in your eye
You walked right out the front door with somebody new
 
Just call me the late and great lover
Since I lost you, I could never love another
I met my Waterloo when I fell in love with you
Just call me the late and great lover
Just call me the late and great lover

The Dreamer

When I was a young man beginnin' my teens
How well I remember the lickin's I'd get 'cause I'd dream
My work never finished, barely begun
I couldn't get started 'til all of my dreamin' was done
 
I wouldn't shuck cotton, I wouldn't chop wood
And then Pa would whip me and say that's for bein' no good
But I kept chasin' rainbows, finally I found
The great open range and the hills were my best dreamin' ground
 
When I left the homeplace, our mother did cry
She begged me to stay there, and not say goodbye
My Pa told my mother, 'Your tears are in vain,
Your son is a dreamer and the winds call his name.
So don't try to stop him, let him move on,
'Cause he won't stop his driftin'
'Til all of his dreamin' is gone'.
 
Last night in a campfire, a face I did see
A vision of Mother, she seemed to be callin' to me
For seventeen years now, I've drifted alone
But I want to see Mother, tomorrow I'll start driftin' home
 
The last hill I've climbed now, and what do I see?
An old run-down shack where the ranch used to be
Then I see a tombstone and then see one more
I've drifted too long from the old ranch house door
 
There's nothin' more left now but driftin', it seems
But I hope I can dream of the lickin's I'd get
'Cause I'd dream

Foggy Foggy Dew

When I was a bachelor, I lived all alone
I worked at the weaver's trade
And the only only thing I did that was wrong
Was to woo a fair young maid
 
I wooed her in the winter time
Part of the summer too
And the only only thing I did that was wrong
Was to keep her from the foggy foggy dew
 
One night she knelt down by my side
When I was fast asleep
She threw her arms around my neck
And then began to weep
 
She wept, she cried, she tore her hair
Ah me, what could I do?
So all night long I held her in my arms
To keep her from the foggy foggy dew
 
Again I am a bachelor and I live with my son
We work at the weaver's trade
And every single time that I look into his eyes
He reminds me of the fair young maid
 
He reminds me of the winter time
Part of the summer too
And the many many times that I held her in my arms
To keep her from the foggy foggy dew

O Little Town of Bethlehem

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark street shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight
 
For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
Oh, morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the king
And peace to men on earth
 
O Holy Child of Bethlehem
Descend on us we pray
Cast out our sin, and enter in
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O Come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

Amor

Amor, amor, amor,
This word so sweet that I repeat,
Means I adore you.
Amor, amor, my love,
Would you deny this heart
That I have placed before you?
I can't find another word
With meaning so clear,
My lips try to whisper
Sweeter things in your ear.
But somehow or other,
Nothing sounds quite so dear,
As this soft caressing word I know.
 
Amor, amor, my love,
When you're away,
There is no day,
And nights are lonely.
Amor, amor, my love,
Make life divine,
Say you'll be mine
And love me only

El Paso

Out in the West Texas town of El Paso
I fell in love with a Mexican girl
Night-time would find me in Rosa's Cantina
Music would play and Feleena would whirl
 
Blacker than night were the eyes of Feleena
Wicked and evil while casting a spell
My love was deep for this Mexican maiden
I was in love but in vain, I could tell
 
One night a wild young cowboy came in
Wild as the West Texas wind
Dashing and daring
A drink he was sharing
With wicked Feleena
The girl that I loved
 
So in anger I
Challenged his right for the love of this maiden
Down went his hand for the gun that he wore
My challenge was answered in less than a heart-beat
The handsome young stranger lay dead on the floor
 
Just for a moment I stood there in silence
Shocked by the foul evil deed I had done
Many thoughts raced through my mind as I stood there
I had but one chance and that was to run
 
Out through the back door of Rosa's I ran
Out where the horses were tied
I caught a good one
It looked like it could run
Up on its back
And away I did ride
 
Just as fast as I
Could from the West Texas town of El Paso
Out to the bad-lands of New Mexico
 
Back in El Paso my life would be worthless
Everything's gone in life nothing is left
It's been so long since I've seen the young maiden
My love is stronger than my fear of death
 
I saddled up and away I did go
Riding alone in the dark
Maybe tomorrow
A bullet may find me
Tonight nothing's worse than this
Pain in my heart
 
And at last here I
Am on the hill overlooking El Paso
I can see Rosa's Cantina below
My love is strong and it pushes me onward
Down off the hill to Feleena I go
 
Off to my right I see five mounted cowboys
Off to my left ride a dozen or more
Shouting and shooting I can't let them catch me
I have to make it to Rosa's back door
 
Something is dreadfully wrong for I feel
A deep burning pain in my side
Though I am trying
To stay in the saddle
I'm getting weary
Unable to ride
 
But my love for
Feleena is strong and I rise where I've fallen
Though I am weary I can't stop to rest
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest
 
From out of nowhere Feleena has found me
Kissing my cheek as she kneels by my side
Cradled by two loving arms that I'll die for
One little kiss and Feleena, good-bye

Yours (Quiéreme Mucho)

Yours till the stars lose their glory
Yours till the birds fail to sing
Yours to the end of life's story
This pledge to you dear, I bring
 
Yours in the gray of December
Here or on far distant shores
I've never loved anyone the way I love you
How could I when I was born to be just yours
 
Cuando se quiere de veras
Como te quiero yo a ti
Es imposible mi cielo tan separados
Vivir cuando se quiere de veras
 
Cuando se quiere de veras
Como te quiero yo a ti
Es imposible mi cielo tan separados
Vivir cuando se quiere de veras...

My Love

My love is the valley,
The breeze as it sighs
My love is the mountains
That reach to the sky.
 
My love is the valley
The rocks and the rills
My love is the prairie
The low rollin' hills the rollin' hills.
 
The call of the night bird
I love every trill
There's peace and contentment
When everything's still.
 
The wail of the coyote
The flight of the dove
It's all God's creation
And that's what I love.
 
And that's what I love...

Ballad of a Small Man

He was a small man but this man was all man
He was accustomed to danger
He knew the badlands, he knew every bad man
This man was a ranger, ranger, ranger
 
Into the township of Pecos he rode
Everyone noticed this stranger
Plainly it showed in the way that he rode in
This man was a ranger, ranger, ranger
 
Everyone watched as he climbed from his horse and walked by
Every eye dropped to the gun hanging low on his side
The silence was broken, the ranger had spoken
And these were his words
 
I've trailed an outlaw for thirty-six days
I'm twenty hours behind him
He's here in town so I'll just be around
Long as it takes me to find him, find him, find him
 
Slowly he turned and he looked down the street
Then he looked back to the crowd
Somethin' about him left no room to doubt
He spoke very little but loud, but loud, but loud
 
If it is pity you have for my size
Save it don't waste it, my friend
This equalizer I have on my hip
Makes me as big as the next man, next man, next man
 
Then from a door came a curse and they knew at a glance
The outlaw had stepped to the street to begin his advance
Women grabbed children, men grabbed their wives
And thay ran from the street
 
Even the soft, gentle breeze became still
Death had a minute to wait
Two hands would dive for a Colt forty-five
One hand would come up too late, too late, too late
 
'Go for your gun', was the outlaw's remark
'Tomorrow you'll sleep neath the stone.'
The ranger replied, 'There'll be plenty of time
After you go for your own, your own, your own.'
 
All of a sudden it happened
Both of then grabbed for a gun
Both clearing leather, both fired together
Everyone thought it was one gun, one gun, one gun
 
A forty-five slug hit the outlaw and spun him around
His life was over, he died on his way to the ground
To our surprise we watched as the ranger
Took one faltering step
 
Slowly he crumbled and fell to the ground
A bullet was deep in his side
He looked all around but he spoke not a word
A faint little smile and he died, he died, he died

The Outlaws

The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')
A harder ridin' bunch of outlaws no one ever saw
I don't recall the lawman that could match or beat the draw
The rode the west, they fought the best
The never lost a fight
They did their hidin' in the daytime
Ridin' most at night
 
The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')
They rode into Yuma on a hot September day
Hit the bank and got the gold and then they rode away
The sheriff tried to stop 'em but he didn't really try
The sheriff thought too much of life
And he didn't wanna die
 
The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')
The governor of the territory called the rangers in
The rangers caught the outlaws and the fightin' did begin
For seven hours they fought and there were bodies all around
Not one body of an outlaw lay upon the ground
 
The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')
They only took the money that the rich got by their greed
And gave it to the ranchers who were desperately in need
They'd ride into the poorest section of a border town
Evenly distributed to the poorest of the town
 
The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')
Maybe it was wrong to steal, but was it wrong to give?
They took many chances so a friend in need might live
One by one they've gone but still there's one alive to tell
The outlaws never failed to hear it when a friend would yell
 
The outlaws are commin' (commin', commin')

The First Song That Wasn't the Blues

It's not easy to forget all the heartaches
And the sad songs I have known in the past
Lord, I've heard a line of songs, the kind of songs
That make you want to sing along, but they just don't last
 
When I started singin' with the lovin' that you're bringin'
Me and you, I changed my tune
You're the first song that I've ever sung
That wasn't the blues
 
It's so easy to remember all the livin', lovin',
Haunting memories, you sing to me
Words that used to be so hard for me to sing
Now come so easily, with harmony
 
Every note I'm singin' comes down like a ray of sunshine
On the dew, just for you
You're the first song that I've ever sung
That wasn't the blues
 
Oh, you are the first girl in my world
That never made me cry
And it seems like a lifetime since these eyes
Of mine have been dry
 
Now that you're holdin' me I feel that happy love song
Comin' through, mmmm, thank you
You're the first song that I've ever sung
That wasn't the blues
 
Oh, you are the first girl in my world
That never made me cry
And it seems like a lifetime since these eyes
Of mine have been dry
 
Now that you're holdin' me I feel that happy love song
Comin' through, mmmm, thank you
You're the first song that I've ever sung
That wasn't the blues
You're the first song that I've ever sung
That wasn't the blues

Maria, If I Could

Maria, you're the only one that ever understood
the way I feel
Maria, you're the only one to me that was ever real
And yet you bid me go because inside your heart
you know I cannot stay
But keep a light in your window burnin',
Little girl, I'm comin' home some day.
 
Maria, if I only had the power to turn back the hands of time
I'd spread my wings around you and little girl,
I'd make you mine
'Cause all you ever wanted was to love me in
your plain and honest way
So keep a light in your window burnin',
Little girl, I'm comin' back some day.
 
Oh, Maria, you gave me the precious gift of love
that I have ever known
And then you kissed me gently,
for when I opened up my eyes, you were gone
And now I'm gonna lose the only good thing
that ever came my way
So keep a light in your window burnin',
Little girl, I'm comin' back some day.
 
Keep a light in your window burnin',
Little girl, I'm comin' back some day...

Too Far Gone

If I could stay away
Then I could break away
I've lost control somehow
I'm too far gone
 
I'm at my all-time low
Don't know which way to go
Can't get you off my mind
I'm too far gone
 
I've tried to tell myself that I don't want you
But it's nothin' more than just a feeble try
When you kiss me like no other one has kissed me
Oh, the thrill I get tells me I've told a lie
 
Oh, Lesley lovin' you
It's wrong but still I do
I can't get over you
I'm too far gone
 
I'd like to rearrange
My life but I can't change
Too late I find out now
I'm too far gone
 
I've tried to tell myself that I don't love you
But it's nothin' more than just a feeble try
When you kiss me like no one but you can kiss me
Oh, the thrill I get tells me I've told a lie

Las Vegas, Nevada

Las Vegas, Nevada
City of music and laughter, city of lights
Las Vegas, I didn't know I would lose Betty Jo
In the noise of your night
Las Vegas, where is the warmness and kindness
That you used to show?
Las Vegas, you're changing, you're growing so cold
You're so different
It started, Las Vegas, the moment you took Betty Jo
 
Now in Las Vegas, in one of the largest casinos
Betty Jo dances while music is playing so loud
There's such a strangeness in eyes that I knew
She never sees me, I'm only a face in the crowd
 
Las Vegas, Nevada
What happens now? I'm completely out of her life
Las Vegas, before you stepped in I had kinda
Made plans to make Betty my wife
Las Vegas, I can't compete with the
Thrill and excitement you show
Completely forgotten by one I will always remember
Goodbye to Las Vegas, goodbye to my sweet Betty Jo
 
Goodbye to Las Vegas, goodbye to my sweet Betty Jo

Man Walks Among Us

Warm are the winds on the desert
A whirlwind is dancing around
I stop to survey all the beauty that's here
When a shadow moves out across the ground
 
It's an eagle that circles above me
And he screams to his friends on the hill
'Stay close together, move not a feather,
Man walks among us, be still, be still
Man walks among us, be still.'
 
Everything hides, but I see them
I've spotted an old mother quail
I look close and see, looking right back at me
The eyes of a young cottontail
I see a coyote sneaking
As he crawls through the brush on the hill
And the eagle screams down, 'Stay close to the ground
Man walks among us, be still, be still,
Man walks among us, be still. '
 
Twenty feet high in the side of a cactus
I see a hole where the butcher bird stays
If mortals could choose, and if heaven should ask us
Here's where I'd want to spend all of my days
 
Soon will be gone all the desert
Cities will cover each hill
Today will just be a fond memory
Man walks among us, be still, be still
Man walks among us, be still.

When I'm Gone

When I'm gone, will you forget me,
Will you find somebody new?
When I'm gone will you forget me
Darlin', as you often do?
 
When I'm gone will you forget me,
Will you look for someone new?
Will some other arms enfold you
Just the way mine used to do?
 
Will there be no memory of me,
Or the first day when we met?
When I'm gone will you remember,
Or when I'm gone will you forget?

Put a Little Rainbow in your Pocket

Put a little rainbow in your pocket
Put a little starlight in your eyes
Sunshine in your walk, your talk
And soon you'll realize
Happiness is made of rainbows
Dreams come from the stars above
Smiles are made of sunshine
And hearts are made for love
 
(Love, love, love)
 
Look for the rainbow when it's rainin'
Look for the stars behind the clouds
Mister sun is gonna shine again
Of this there is no doubt
Happiness is made of rainbows
Dreams come from the stars above
Smiles are made of sunshine
And hearts are made for love
 
(Love, love, love)
 
Put a little rainbow in your pocket
Put a little starlight in your eyes
Put a little sunshine in your walk, your talk
Soon you'll realize
Happiness is made of rainbows
Dreams come from the stars above
Smiles are made of sunshine
And hearts are made for love
 
Happiness is made of rainbows
Dreams come from the stars above
Smiles are made of sunshine
And hearts are made for love
 
(Love, love, love)
(Love, love, love)
(Love, love, love)
(Love, love, love)

Quiet Shadows

When quiet shadows of night surround me
I pray for your safe return
And though our parting seems to confound me
There are some things I have learned
 
How sweet your smile can be
When it is meant for me
Your understanding way
Brightens my every day
 
Each night I wait your call
It makes my troubles small
Though we are miles apart
You're always in my heart
 
As quiet shadows of night
Fade slowly into morning light
I see that you've come home to me
I see that you've come home to me

Pride and the Badge

All night long I tried to sleep, but sleep refused to come
'Cause today I knew I'd either have to fight or run
Knowin' if I choose to run my mind would never rest
'Cause with so much pride I wear this badge upon my vest
 
Folks are filled with fear because there's three bad guns in town
Sheriff Olsen made the wrong move and they shot him down
One they called Dakota Jack, one El Paso Red
The other just turned twenty and he's called the Killer Kid
 
Good advice I get, and that's to leave and run away
But my pride and badge I wear won't let me live that way
If I stay, the three have aimed to add me to their list
But I have a different aim and I don't aim to miss
 
From the doorway where I stand I see the outlaws three
Worried none because they know the town's not helpin' me
From a hundred yards away I try a lucky shot
Luck is with me and Dakota Jack dies on the spot
 
The Kid runs through the barroom door and Red goes up the stairs
The Kid is ragin' mad, he's shootin' bottles, kickin' chairs
From a roof El Paso Red has vowed to pay me back
As he views the lifeless body of Dakota Jack
 
I can see him as he jumps from one roof to the next
Searchin' for me but he has no idea where I'm at
But I watch his every move, I'm ready when he leaps
As I shoot him in mid-air he crashes to the street
 
Now there's one against just one, I've evened up the score
Down the street I hear a yell come through the barroom door
The Kid has screamed, there's no way I can live unless I run
Said there ain't no lawdog man enough to take his gun
 
Through the barroom door he walks and steps out in the street
I can't match his draw, he's much too fast for me to beat
And as I walk toward him we both grab a forty-five
Maybe I will die today and he will stay alive
 
Like a hammer somethin' hits me, spinnin' me around
As I fall I shoot him twice before he hits the ground
His bullet missed me, still I feel a burnin' in my chest
His bullet hit the badge I wear with pride upon my vest
 
As the people view the bodies of the lifeless three
From their looks I know exactly what they think of me
To them I'm just a killer and they could not care less
About my pride or about the badge I wear upon my vest

When It's Lamplighting Time in the Valley

There's a lamp shinin' bright in a cabin
In a window it's shinin' for me
And I know that my mother is prayin'
For the boy she is longing to see
 
When it's lamplighting time I can see her
As she rocks in her chair to and fro
But I know that I'll never more see her
'Cause she's gone to a good place I know
 
Oh, she lights up her lamp and sits waiting
For she knows not the crime that I've done
But I'll change all my ways and I'll meet her
Up in Heaven when life's race is run
 
When it's lamplighting time in the valley
And in dreams I go back to my home
I can see that old lamp in the window
It will guide me where ever I roam
