Daniel O'Donnell – Silver Threads Among The Gold lyrics

Chorus:
Darling, I am growing old,
Silver threads among the gold
Shine upon my brow today
Life is fading fast away.

But, my darling, you will be, will be
Always young and fair to me
Yes, my darling, you will be
Always young and fair to me.

When your hair is silver white
And your cheeks no longer bright
With the roses of the May
I will kiss your lips and say.

Oh! My darling, mine alone, alone
You have never older grown
Yes, my darling, mine alone
You have never older grown.

--- Instrumental ---

Chorus:
Love can never more grow old
Locks may lose their brown and gold
Cheeks may fade and hollow grow
But the hearts that love will know.

That, my darling, you will be, will be
Always young and fair to me
Yes, my darling, you will be
Always young and fair to me.

Always young and fair to me...

    During WWII my mother and I lived with my grandparents. They played music using a gramaphone.
    on which which we got the disc to rotate by cranking it up. My best-loved song was the sweet "Darling, I am growing old, Silver threads among the gold Shine upon my brow today, etc. Do you know if that song is on a cd or any other type of disc to play?

    More than 50 years ago I was going to a counrty school an my moither was the teacher there was a lot of snow that winter an I sent for a harmonica an it came with a music book an that tune was in the book. Them days I never cared for that tune but now it brings tears to my eyes an I think of mother teaching us kids that winter.
