Cora Is Gone

print

The wind through the night is blowing so lonesome
Singing to me a song
A whippoorwill call is just a reminder
Pretty girls have hearts made of stone

   I’ll wake with the blues at dawn
   My darling Cora is gone
   I don’t know why she told me goodbye
   But my darling Cora is gone

The ring that she wears I bought for her finger
Purchased her raiment so fine
Gave her my last green back dollar
And now she’s left me behind

Drifting along like a brush on a river
Caring not where I roam
Going to live in a deep forest
Dark hollow will be my new home
