Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain

Lyrics: Fred Rose
Music: Fred Rose

Played by Bob Weir at the concert in 2023 for Willie Nelson's 90th birthday, and with Joan Baez in 2024 in a tribute concert to Ramblin' Jack Elliott.

In the twilight glow, I see
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

Now my hair is turning silver (note 1)
All my life I've loved in vain
And I can see her star in heaven
Blue eyes crying in the rain

Some day when we meet up yonder
We'll stroll hand in hand again
In a land that knows no parting
Blue eyes crying in the rain
(1) this verse was not included in the Willie Nelson version, though it was sung by Bob Weir.
