Thread Name: info about Paul Clayton??
Subject: Lyrics add: Who's gonna buy you ribbons
times on the railroad gettin' hard, babe,
last night i woke up and saw it snow.
remember what you said to me last summer
when you see me walkin' down that road.

cho:
it ain't no use to sit and sigh now, darlin',
it ain't no use to sit and cry now.
it ain't no use to sit and wonder why, darlin',
just wonder who's gonna buy you ribbons when i'm gone.

so i'm wandering down that old dusty road, darlin'.
you're the reason that i've got to travel on.
still i can't help wonderin' on my way, darlin',
who's gonna buy you ribbons when i'm gone

cho:

(learned from a 45rpm single by Paul Clayton, c1962. flip side: "The last cigarette".)
