TEARS IN THE HOLSTON RIVER 
Written & Recorded by: Johnny Cash 

INTRO: 1/4/1/4/1/5/1 

[1] On October [4] Twenty-[1]-Third, Nineteen [4] Seventy-[1]-Eight 
I [4] lost a [1] loved one and I confess I [5] cried 
In the [1] joyous [4] cele-[1]-bration of the [4] lady and her music 
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River 
When [5] Maybelle Carter [1] died [1-7] 

Then [4] walking down that river road 
I saw [1] crystal tear-shaped droplets 
Silver beads of love sparklin' on the river [5] side 
And I'll just [1] bet they turn to diamonds 
For the [4] love that was behind 'em 
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River 
When [5] Mother Maybelle [1] died 

Then on [1] Janu-[4]-ary [1] Eighth, Nineteen-[4]-Seventy-[1]-Nine 
We lost [4] Sara [1] Carter 
And the pain was multi-[5]-plied 
Down be-[1]-low that [4] old Clinch [1] Mountain 
We [4] laid her at Mount Vernon 
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River 
When [5] Sara Carter [1] died 

Then [4] walking down that river road 
I [1] saw crystal tear-shaped droplets 
Silver beads of love sparklin' in the river-[5]-side 
And I'll just [1] bet they turn to diamonds 
For the [4] love that was behind 'em 
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River 
When [5] Maybelle & Sara [1] died 

TAG: 
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River 
When Mother [4] Maybelle and [1] Sara [5] Carter [1] died
