Emmylou Harris – Alone And Forsaken lyrics

We met in the springtime when blossoms unfold
The pastures were green and the meadows were gold
Our love was in flower as summer grew on
He love like the leaves now has withered and gone

The roses have faded, there's frost at my door
The birds in the morning don't sing anymore
The grass in the valley is starting to die
And out in the darkness the whip-poor-wills cry

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

Oh, where has he gone to, oh, where can he be
He may have forsaken some other like me
He promised to honor, to love and obey
Each vow was a plaything that he threw away

The darkness is falling, the sky has turned gray
A hound in the distance is starting to "Bay"
I wonder, I wonder what he's thinking of
Forsaken, forgotten without any love

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