long hard fall lyrics – carlene carter

(carlene carter/howie epstein)

it was sometime late september
the leaves were gold and green
my baby’s eyes were the saddest sight i’d ever seen
two summers back i loved him
two years i cried and tried
but i tell you, too many teardrops falling down cannot be dried

it’s been a long hard fall
long hard fall
long hard fall

so something came between us
a feeling cold as ice
by october there was frost and i knew our love was lost
november made me bitter
as the wind blew through my heart
oh, so empty in the deepest darkest tiny part

it’s been a long hard fall
long hard fall
long hard fall

thre’d be snow come mid-december
and i’ll be frozen to the bone
oh, but by then it will all be over

it’s been a long hard fall
it’s been a long hard fall
long hard fall
long hard fall
it’s been a long hard fall
long hard fall
