Love And Wealth

Lyrics: Charles & Ira Louvin
Music: Charles & Ira Louvin

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys in March 1964.

Darling I am all alone in our little mountain home
It's lonely cold and loveless now inside
For your childish vows of love lasted only one short year
Then you went away to be another's bride

You will never know the pain
That I felt the day you left
Should you ever wed again
Let me wish you love and wealth

For that same old whippoorwill breaks the silence on the hill
As I stand and gaze upon it's faded wall
Where your picture used to hang in a little golden frame
And the vision of your smile I still recall


Though they say we live and learn from our sorrows we must turn
And be able to forget sad memories
Let me wish you love and wealth, may you take good care of yourself
But my broken heart will last eternally
