In the twilight glow I see her,
Blue eyes crying in the rain.
As we kissed goodbye and parted,
I knew we’d never meet again.
Love is like a dying ember,
Only memories remain.
Through the ages I’ll remember,
Blue eyes crying in the rain.
Now my hair has turned to silver,
All my life I’ve loved in vain.
I can see her star in heaven,
Blue eyes crying in the rain.
Someday when we meet up yonder,
We’ll stroll hand in hand again.
In a land that knows no parting,
Blue eyes crying in the rain.
