Lorene Recorded by Cal Smith Written by Don Wayne and Buck Moore
G I was just twenty three when Lorene married me C G A good woman gravest mistake
She was carrying my child
But I was too young and wild A7 D7 For the burdens that marriage creates
G So just like a coward I looked for a way out C G Went where the Snake River flows C G I left her a note inside of my coat D7 G And quickly walked off down the road
Lorene stood and shivered while they dragged the river C G For the body that was not to be found
I watched from a hill while they had my funeral A7 D7 From there I could hear every sound
G There were friends and relations and they all kept saying C G What a shame it was I chose to die C But the thing that still haunts me G And tears at my conscious D7 G Is the sound Lorene made when she cried
C G Black velvet lace covered her face D7 But her grieving was too strong to hide G Yes the thing that still haunts me
And tears at my conscious D7 G Is the sound Lorene made when she cried
After two years of hiding with the shame locked inside me C G My conscious led me back home
To a small country grave yard where a plain wooden marker A7 D7 Had Lorene's name carved next to my own
G Now I stand and shiver at the banks of the river C G Lorene seems to beckon to me C G Then like an old friend whispers come on in D7 G And I'll put your conscious to sleep
As I go under the last I remember D7 G Is the sound Lorene made when she cried
