We Parted by the Riverside

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family (Mother Maybelle, Helen, June, and Anita) and Johnny Cash:
We parted by the riverside
The moon looked down on you and me
The stars put on a look of pride
The river murmured to the sea

The dewdrop kissed a blushing rose
The mournful winds did sigh
One word broke nature’s sweet repose
That sad word was goodbye

Oh, tell me that you love me yet
For oh this parting gives me pain
Please tell me that you’ll not forget
For we may never meet again

For I am faithful to you still
As long as you are true
Let fate bring it to me what it will
For I love you only you

We parted by the riverside
The moon looked down on you and me
The stars put on a look of pride
The river murmured to the sea

The dewdrop kissed a blushing rose
The mournful winds did sigh
One word broke nature’s sweet repose
That sad word was goodbye
