"From this valley they say you are going.
We will miss your bright eyes and sweet smile.
For they say you are taking the sunshine,
that has brightened our pathway the while.
Do you think of the valley you're leaving?
Oh how lonely and dreary it will be.
Do you think of the fond heart you're breaking,
and the sadness you've cast over me?
For a long time my dear I've been waiting,
for the words that you never would say.
And alas my poor heart you are breaking,
for they tell me you're going away.
Come and sit by my side, if you love me.
Do not hasten to bid me adieu.
Just remember the good times we shared here.
And your family who loved you so true." (adapted from Red River Valley as sung by Gene Autry)

"Life is like a mountain railroad,
with an engineer that's brave.
We must make the run successful,
from the cradle to the grave.
Watch the curves, the fills, and tunnels,
never falter, never fail.
Keep your hand upon the throttle,
and your eyes upon the rail.
Blessed savior, thou will guide us,
till we reach that blissful shore.
Where the angels wait to join us,
in that great forevermore."
(from Life's Railway to Heaven by Patsy Cline)
