MY DEAR COMPANION
Emmylou Harris


Oh have you seen my dear companion for he was all this world to me
I hear he's gone to some far country and that he cares no more for me
I wish I were a swallow flying I'd fly to a high and lonesome place
I'd join the wild birds in their crying thinking of you and your sweet face
[ mandolin - ac.guitar ]
Oh have you seen my dear companion for he was all this world to me
But now the stars have turned against me and he cares no more for me
Oh when the dark is on the mountain and all the world has gone to sleep
I will go down to cold dark waters and there I'll lay me down and weep
Oh have you seen my dear companion oh have you seen my dear companion
Oh have you seen my dear companion oh have you seen my dear companion
For he was all this world to me
