Run Softly, Blue River Lyrics - Johnny Cash



Review The Song (2)


(Run softly Blue River my darlin's asleep run softly Blue River run cool and deep)
Run softly Blue River my darlin's asleep run softly Blue River run cool and deep
Oh I thrill to her kisses and she thrills to mine
Run softly while she sleeps and dreams for a time
Cause she dreams of tomorrow when she'll be my wife
And I pray that as peaceful as you is our life
And if your murmuring soothes me till I'm sleeping too
Run softly Blue River we'll both dream with you
(Run softly Blue River my darlin's asleep run softly Blue River run cool and deep)
Oh I thrill to her kisses...
(Run softly Blue River my darlin's asleep run softly Blue River run cool and deep)
(Run softly Blue River my darlin's asleep run softly Blue River run cool and deep)

Run Softly, Blue River | Reviewer: Mark Beebe | 8/9/2007

Run Softly, Blue River is the first song on the album 'The Fabulous Johnny Cash' Released in I believe 1958. It was the first LP he did with Columbia Records after leaving Sun Records. It also has such great songs as 'I Still Miss Someone' and 'Don't Take Your Guns to Town'. Run Softly, Blue River was written by Johnny Cash and we hear him almost pleading with the nearby river to run softly as not to disturb his darling who is asleep dreaming of becoming his wife. This is one of my favorite ballads of his during this early part of his career. I have seen this album around from time to time but a person's best bet is to find a store that deals in these old albums and find one in acceptable condition.

why isn't this song on hardly any cd's? | Reviewer: bill fanning | 6/3/2006

This is my favorite (among hundreds by him) and yet in Wal-mart today and many other times, you can hardly find it?
