"My Better Years" as written by and Hazel Dickens....
Now you're back on my doorstep a' crying
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've already gave you my better years

And 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 drown my tears.

But I've tried not to blame you
and I 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 to my doorstep a' crying
Hoping for what's been dead so long
For the embers have all turned to ashes
There's nothing here but old memories and this song.

No don't come back to my doorstep a' crying
There's nothing here but old memories and this song.
