"Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" as written by and Fred Rose....
In the twilight glow I see her
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

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

    General CommentI second that... I was at a freinds house and we where listening to music and we where talking about willie nelson. He was saying this was his favorite. i had'nt ever heard the song but heard of it.. Well, when i actually heard it, at first i thoguht it was a little boring but then, i really listened to the song, I was moved...It reminds me of a fling i had with this guy.. While this man and I spent our time together this song kept popping in my head... I always wonder why he never called me and wonder what hes doing and weather he moved back to mississippi. Jason, if you read this, email me sometime.

    General CommentAll I can say is that Fred Rose must have been feeling like Hank Williams when he wrote this song. I'm not sure exactly what year he wrote this, but there is a bootleg recording out there of Hank Sr. playing this song. It's wonderful. Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain is a classic tale of love lost. I'm not sure the circumstances of the split between the two parties. It sounds like it's mutual. Though I'm not sure that either of these people wanted to leave, but they must have known it wouldn't work out. Another beautiful version is Shania Twain's. Willie plays guitar and sings harmony on it. It's wonderful.

    General CommentSo good...obviously about meeting up again in the afterlife..."in the land that knows no parting." Sad song, but one of his better ones.

    General CommentThere are many great songs. And then there are truly great songs. This song was written by a man named Fred Rose. To my mind, Fred Rose must have been a man of unshakeable faith. Thank you, Fred. :-)

    My InterpretationWell, as songs go this one is definitely a sad one. I believe that Willie Nelsons version is the best, but to each there own. I have read that the writer originally was thinking of a preacher that is on the run from killing his wife but I just can't see that when I listen to it. Maybe I am a little jaded because my wife passed away just short of 2 years ago and when I listen to this song I see a man that has lost his love of his life and is thinking of the time that will be together again "in the land that knows no parting".
