There is something about sad songs ... this is an oldie that my dad taught me. The melody is bright, but the words bring out the joy in the sadness. I cannot sing it without thinking of someone close to my wife and I ... and she cannot bear to hear this song.

If you would like the lyrics and/or chords, just let me know.
