🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
In the twilight glow I see herBlue eyes cryin’ in the rainAnd when we kissed goodbye and partedI knew that we’d never meet again
Love is like a dyin’ emberAnd only memories remainand through the ages I’ll rememberBlue eyes cryin’ in the rain
Some day when we meet up yonderWe’ll stroll hand in hand againIn a land that knows no partin’Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
