Clarence Kelly & Nu-Cut Road at Lanny Franklin’s Old Mill Bluegrass Festival in West Liberty, Kentucky July 13, 2013

Forever and a Day written by Clarence Kelly

They were just two young lovers out walking one day
He put his arms around her and whispered please dont go away
She smiled and looked into his eyes and then he heard her say
I promise to always love you forever and a day

The years went by so quickly he loved her more each day
They walked life’s road together their hearts never strayed
And every night he’d turn out the light and he would hear her say
I promise to always love you forever and a day

Forever and a day I’ll never go away
The only time I’ll leave you is when I go to my grave
I know that God in Heaven will surely find a way
For me to always love you forever and a day

And then the day it came that his world stood still
He laid the pretty flowers on a grave out on a hill
His tears they fell so softly as he turned to walk away
He whispered Oh I’ll always love you forever and a day

Now his days they pass slowly since she’s gone away
He places pretty flowers on her grave every day
These words they’re always written on a pretty bouquet
I promise to always love you forever and a day

Forever and a day I’ll never go away
