The Johnson Mountain Boys

The Johnson Mountain Boys were a popular bluegrass band throughout the 1980s from the Washington, D.C. area. Their style favored a more traditional approach to bluegrass than some of their contemporaries. They released ten albums and toured widely, playing venues such as Madison Square Garden, The White House, the Lincoln Center and the Grand Ole Opry in the United States. Other tours took them around the world to England, Japan, and Africa. The group was frequently recognized with nominations for Grammy Awards, International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and awards from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America. Many of the band's members are still active in other musical groups and settings. more »

Now you're back on my doorstep a' crying
   Like I cried through all those lonely years
   But I can't dry your tears it's been too long since love was here
   And I've already gave you my better years

And so the pages of time kept right on turning
They never stopped for us to harvest the years
And old embers of love kept right on dying
For there was no one to drown my tears.

But I've tried not to blame you
and I try not to shame you
All I can do now is wish you well
But if you should need a friend
I'll be there until the end
Just don't ask me to love you again.

   And don't come back to my doorstep a' crying
   Hoping for what's been dead so long
   For the embers have all turned to ashes
   There's nothing here but old memories and this song.

   No don't come back to my doorstep a' crying
   There's nothing here but old memories and this song.
