From the Carter Family - one of the richest troves of poetic Americana, and dear to my heart.


Honey Lou
From the Carter Family/Arr. Evie Ladin Band

When the sun sets in the west my Honey Lou

That's the time I love you best Honey Lou

Come and look into my eyes when the moon shines in the skies

I'll be in paradise Honey Lou


Last night I waited long my Honey Lou

I told the birds my song Honey Lou

When the bright and silver moon sheds its soft and mellow light

I'll love you more each night Honey Lou

When the birds have hushed their song my Honey Lou

All the twilight lingers on my Honey Lou

My heart forever beats for my honey gal so sweet

I'll lay it at your feet Honey Lou
