Kim Beggs | Lyrics from Wanderer’s Paean

All the Good Times Are Past and Gone

traditional adapted by Kim Beggs

Kim Beggs - vocals, guitar
Bob Hamilton - vocals, rayco, upright bass
Annie Avery - harmonium

All the good times are past and gone
All the good times are over
All the good times are past and gone
Little darling don’t you weep no more

I wish to the lord I’d never been born
Or died when I was young
I never would have seen your sparkling blue eyes
Or heard your beautiful song

Don’t you hear the turtle dove
That flies from pine to pine
He’s morning for his own true love
Just like I mourn for mine

Don’t you see the passenger train
Goin around the bend
It’s takin away my own true love
To never return again

Come back, come back my own true love
And stay a while with me
If ever I’ve had a friend in this world
You’ve been a friend to me
