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 mother loved this song by Willie. I played it for her from his CD in the nursing home.Being preoccupied with her condition, I never really listened to the lyrics. The day she died, at age 98, I had played this song over and over for her. After her passing, all I could hear in my head was the melody. So, I sat down and listened to it and couldn't believe the message within the lines of the song. Every time I hear this song, I will see my mother's tender blue eyes and will never forget that special time I had with her.

    I grew up listening to this song on the radio. Since i have blue eyes, it takes on a special meaning.

    This is a sad song about parting lovers, yet it makes me happy. I'm 71 and I heard this song sung by Elton Britt when I was a child. Willie put some great guitar music to it and totally revived it. I play it a lot that way myself. It reminds me of some break-ups of my own. Why they parted in the rain though I'll never know. It does however leave a promise of a reunion down the road. It has all it needs to be a great song. I love it.

    I first heard this song sung by Elton Britt on the radio when I was a child. I'm 71 now and still love it. The melody is wonderful. I play and sing it a lot. Willie Nelson put wonderful guitar music to it. I play it much the same way myself. It's a sad song about parting lovers, yet it makes me happy. Why they parted in the rain I'll never know.
