All The Good Times Are Passed And Gone

Cat. #0862 (MFH #19) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on August 27, 1969

CHORUS:
All the good times are passed and gone
All th good times are o'er
All th good times are passed and gone
Little darling don't you weep no more

VERSE 1
O, don't you see that lonesome dove
Fly'in from vine to vine
Mourning for its own true mate
Just like I mourn for mine

VERSE 2
O, cain't you hear that lonesome train
Com'in around th bend
It'll take me away from this ole town
Ain't never com'in back again

VERSE 3
I wished to th Lord, I'd never been born
E'r died when I was young
I'd never had seen your smil'in face
Or heerd your ly'in tongue
