Hank Snow – Color Song lyrics

White's for the wedding that I'll never see
Blue is for heartaches that she gave to me
Green were those two eyes that stole her away
Gray were the darks skies on that tragic day.

Black was the gun that I drew from my side
Red fload the blood where's my false lover's died
Brown was the earth neath the grey skies above
Life lost it's color when I lost my love.

--- Instrumental ---

Black was the cloak on the old judge that day
White was my face when he said you must pay
Blue were the tears that I she'd in myself
Red are the roses that other folks dwell.

Gold was my hair when they first sentenced me
It will be silver when they set me free
Gone is the rainbow that shone up above
Life lost it's color when I lost my love.

Life lost it's color when I lost my love...
