Moody River – Pat Boone

Apr 19 2012

One of my favourite songs that me and my brother grew up listening to back in the 90s. My humble attempt at this golden-voiced Pat Boone’s 1961 #1 release Moody River on my Classical Guitar.

Words:

Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
Moody river, your muddy water took my baby’s life

Last Saturday evenin’ came to the old oak tree
It stands beside the river where you were to meet me
On the ground your glove I found
With a note addressed to me
It read “Dear love, I’ve done you wrong”
“Now I must set you free”
“No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin”
“I just couldn’t tell you that guy was just a friend”

Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
Moody river, your muddy water took my baby’s life

I looked into the muddy water and what could I see?
I saw a lonely, lonely face just lookin’ back at me
Tears in his eyes and a prayer on his lips
And the glove of his lost love at his fingertips
