Willie Nelson – Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain lyrics

In the twilight glow I seen her
Blue eyes crying in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we'd never meet again
Love is like a dying ember
And only memories remain
And through the ages I'll remember
Blue eyes crying in the rain
Someday when we meet up yonder
We'll stroll hand in hand again
In the land that knows no parting
Blue eyes crying in the rain

    My husband came back after being gone for only a week, when he saw me he started crying not realizing how much he had missed me. It was raining when I picked him up at the bus stop, he had blue eyes, and 3 years later it was my brown eyes that were crying in the rain when I found out he had been killed in a car accident. Meaning: the song brings back memories of our love, love that is still here.

    There is probably a scenario everyone can relate to from their own experiences regarding this song I like the reference to the land that knows no parting meaning the afterlife or heaven. I hope I will see my brother there someday. The song means a certain life changing love even if only for a moment of time and how we long to see that person again if there is another chance- even if it's after death.
