Born in the springtime when blossoms unfold
The pastures were green and the meadows were gold
Our life was in flower as summer grew on
And life like the leaves now has withered and gone

The roses have died, there's alone
The birds in the morning don't sing anymore
The grass in the valley is starting to die
And out in the darkness the whippoorwills cry

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man
Oh, Lord, if you hear me, please hold my hand
Please understand

Oh, where have you gone, where can you be
How you forsaken some others like me
You promised to honor, to love and obey
As each vow was a plaything that you threw away

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man
Oh, Lord, if you hear me, please hold my hand

Please understand

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man
Oh, Lord, if you hear me, please hold my hand
Please understand

The darkness is falling, the sky has turned gray
A hound in the distance beginning to bey
I wonder, I wonder - what she's thinking of
Forsaken, forgotten - without any love

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man
Oh, Lord, if you hear me, please hold my hand
Please understand

Alone and forsaken by fate and by man
Oh, Lord, if you hear me, please hold my hand
Please understand

Alone and forsaken
Alone and forsaken
Alone and forsaken
