Story

This song by Cowboy Jack Clement is one of the saddest country tunes I know.  Of course no one does it quite like the Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner version released back in 1970.  But Nick Alberty has an achingly beautiful singing voice, a country soul and a way with harmony like no other.  I love singing this duet with him. 

Lyrics

There’s a picture that I carry

One we made some time ago

When they ask who’s in the picture with me

I say just someone I used to know

Just someone I used to spend some time with

Just a flame that’s lost its glow

I don’t tell them of the nights I cried without you

I say just someone I used to know

Just someone I used to hang around with

Just a friend from long ago

I don’t tell them how lost I am without you

I say just someone I used to know

I say just someone I used to know
