Mickey Newbury - "Three Bells For Stephen" lyrics

Do you remember me
Dear hearts and gentle people
I pray I have not stayed away too long
Do you think of me
Dear hearts and gentle people
You can buy my memories for a song

Can you see the blue hills of Kentucky
Can you see my old Kentucky home
Can you hear my sweetheart sadly singing
In a voice as pure and sweet
As heather in the gloam

Will you pray for me
Dear hearts and gentle people
For what I have seen has brought me to my knees
On those lonely nights I could find no sleep
Oh I would unlock my heart and soul
On strings and ivory keys

Now I come to you
Dear hearts and gentle people
A voice across an endless sea of time
Where ever there are songs I will be singing
Dear hearts and gentle people goodnight
Dear hearts and gentle people goodnight
