Mary Chapin Carpenter

Mary Chapin Carpenter (born February 21, 1958) is an American folk and country music singer, songwriter and musician. Carpenter spent several years singing in Washington, D.C. clubs before signing in the late 1980s with Columbia Records, who marketed her as a country singer. Carpenter's first album, 1987's Hometown Girl, did not produce any singles, although 1989's State of the Heart and 1990's Shooting Straight in the Dark each produced four Top 20 hits on the Billboard country singles charts. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

How will we smile ever again
I'm asking you sincerely, my dear old friend
What do you say, is there a way
My dear old friend

How will we laugh just like before
When there's water rising up to our door
And we may never see each other again
My dear old friend

Will there be someone to remember
A little place that we loved
How the music played all night and day
Through the windows up above

How the birds sang in the morning
How the dog barked in the yard
I guess that's nothing much but everything to us
And that's what seems so hard

How will we smile ever again
I'm asking you sincerely, my dear old friend
The moon on the hill says we probably will
My dear old friend
