FOLK SINGER, THE (Merle Kilgore) Tommy Roe - 1963 Jimmy Justice - 1963 Eddy Arnold - 1964 Jim Ed Brown - 1970 Glen Campbell - 1970 He used to sing his songs to his Sarah Jane The folk singer His songs filled with love made the mountains ring The folk singer At first Sarah Jane was to be his bride But as his fame grew, she was pushed aside Sweet mountain girl would say goodbye To the folk singer He let his hair grow long and he dressed in style The folk singer His voice was pure and the fans went wild For the folk singer He said Sarah Jane was much too plain So he left her alone as he gained more fame But sorrow will come like the mountain rain To the folk singer Lavished in glory, fortune at his feet The folk singer Awoke one morning and he couldn't speak The folk singer The doctors said his singing days were through Thousands wept, Sarah Jane did too He couldn't sing, now his friends were few The folk singer Sick at heart in the mountains again The folk singer Now Sarah Jane didn't look so plain To the folk singer Oh, the power of love can do strange things 'Cause love has made him sing again Only now he sings for his Sarah Jane The folk singer And once again the mountains ring For the folk singer The folk singer Oh, the folk singer (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2011)
