Lyrics

MY BETTER YEARS

Mary Bennet – vocals, autoharp
Rosemary Phelan – harmony vocals

Written by Hazel Dickens (Happy Valley Music)

Now you're back on my doorstep a' cryin'
Like I cried through all those lonely years
But I can't dry your tears it's been too long since love was here
And I already gave you my better years

So the pages of time kept right on turning
They never stopped for us to harvest the years
And old embers of love kept right on dying
For there was no one to dry my tears

chorus

But I'll try not to blame you, I'll try not to shame you
All I can do now is wish you well
But if you should need a friend, I'll be there until the end
Just don't ask me to love you again

And don't come back on my doorstep a' crying
Hoping for what's been gone so long
For the embers have all turned to ashes
There's nothing here but old memories and this song

I can't dry your tears it's been too long since love was here
And I already gave you my better years
