Do you know if there is anywhere I can find lyrics to this original version of ďIím Thinking Tonight of my Blue EyesĒ? I have the 78, and while some verses are clearly the same or similar to those sung by later musicians, there are others I canít make out and seem to be completely different. Any help would be appreciated!

The lyrics are posted just below the screen. That's the Carter Family rendition which I think is the one you want.

Sorry. I got sidetracked. Which song are you looking for? 'Thrills I Can't Forget' or 'I'm Thinking Tonight of my Blue Eyes'??

"Thrills That I Can't Forget." Some of the lyrics sound the same as the Carter Family, but there are others I don't recognize from there. Thanks for responding, though!

Welby Toomey recorded also under the name John Ferguson.

You can hear it here (as Starship rightly suggested, it was recorded under his alias name of Ferguson). You can also hear a much better quality recording at https://lostsongs.home.blog/2019/03/20/welby-toomey/

Here's my attempt at transcribing the lyrics. I got a lot of help from a looking at several different versions of "The Broken Heart" and Blue Eyes (I've closed several while searching for lyrics I thought fit, but a few good sources are here and here)

Like I said, this is my attempt at a transcription, I've filled in questionable spots with guesses marked with question marks but it's not perfect.



THRILLS THAT I CAN'T FORGET
(As recorded by Welby Toomey aka John Ferguson)

Would've been better for us both had we never
In this wide, wicked world, to have met
All the pleasures we've both had together
I am sure, love, I never ever can forget

I have loved you as I have no other
It's a ?death that? has pulled us apart
All our pleasures and hopes, departed
I have struggled in long, laboring pain

You told me you always would love me
And that nothing could come between
Long ago, long ago, (you) departed
Yet those words in my mem'ry are green

Would've been better for us both split as strangers
But it's why should I speak of it now
It had been long since I heard the ?veil? of ?danger?
And a heart broken thought of these vows

When the cold, cold ??? is around me
Would you come, love, and just drop one tear
And tell to the strangers around you
That a heart you have broken lies here

By the way ADalton, if you have the means to and have a better quality recording that linked above, I'd encourage you to send it my way -- if you're willing and able, of course. Even if just 1 or 2 spots are clearer it could help.
