Tears of Blue and Heart of Gold
Tears of blue roll down my cheeks
My face is pale, my knees are weak
I see you off; the sun has set
A crimson red; don't go…not yet
Your sweet embrace is what I pray
In hopes we meet again someday
But what if war will take it's toll?
What if the heads begin to roll?
What if yours truly kills you now?
The seeds of love I then will sow
For if you call me by and through
I'll call and come right back to you
My heart has fallen, as has night
This time, there'll be no morning light
I go inside and weep throughout
I cry and scream, I rage and shout
I think of you, your heart of gold
Your eyes, which freeze and grow so cold
For if in fact your tombstone calls
With you I'll stay, with you I'll fall.
