I found a version at Cowpie I hadn't seen, and I figured I'd post the whole thing instead of just a link.
-Joe Offer-
You might want to post this simple version to let people know how far back this song goes. A lot of young people I talk to think Willie wrote it and he's the only one they've heard sing it!

Roy Acuff recorded it 8-2-45 unissued, then again 1-28-47 Columbia 37822 and Columbia 20367. Hank Williams sung it on a Mother's Best Show in 1951.

Here is Acuff's version of 1947:

(E) In the twilight glow I see her,
(B7) Blue eyes cryin' in the (E) rain,
When we kissed goodbye and parted,
I (B7) knew we'd never meet a- (E)-gain. (E7)

Bridge #1:
(A) Love is like a dying ember,
(E) Only memories re-(B7)-main,
(E) Through the ages I'll remember,
(B7) Blue eyes cryin' in the (E) rain.

Instrumental break:

Bridge #2:
(A) Someday when we meet up yonder,
(E) We'll stroll hand in hand a-(B7)-gain,
(E) In a land that knows no parting,
(B7) Blue eyes cryin' in the (E) rain.

(transcribed by Tim Ausburn)

Willie Nelson version comin' right up.

Joe, I'm really impressed. half the time, when people ask for things, i have no idea where to start (sometimes not even sure of the question!). You always make the effort to research things for people, and I've learnt tons from your postings.

Thanks for your hard work

Callie
