Thread Name: Lyr Req: Stonewall (from Doc Watson)
Subject: RE: Doc Watson lyrics
Here ya go... This is from memory, and I haven't done or heard this song for twenty years or so. But I think this is all there is to it.

The days we had together now all seem so few
and today when I passed you on the street
you treated me like a stranger that you never knew
its the same way every time we meet

You've built a stone wall all around your heart
though my arms ache to hold you as before
You've built a stone wall all around your heart
and you won't let me love you any more

How did I hurt you darlin' why won't you say
Honey what have I done to you
For I still worship you dear in that same old way
How could you forget the love we knew


Not sure if that's "forget" or "forsake" in the last line. Either would work wouldn't it?
