"I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes"

“I’m Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes”

June 1966

The Carter Family – 1929 –

Revised by Stan Berg 2015

---

I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes

Who now is in Heaven far away…

And I'm thinking tonight of her only.

I wonder does June ever think of me

---

You told me June that you loved me.

You promised that we never more would part.

Now a link in that life long chain has been broken.

Leaving me with a sad and broken heart.

---

I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes.

Who now is in Heaven far away…

And I'm thinking tonight of her only…

And I wonder does June ever think of me.

---

Yes, I'm thinking tonight of my blues eyes…

And I wonder does June ever think of me.

(The Original Song by Marty Robbins)

 June's Passing

 June 1994

After an almost 12 year journey into the shadows of Alzheimer's, early one morning in late October 2008, an exhausted June felt God's gentle touch on her shoulder and heard the words: "Come Home June!" As June lay like a wounded soldier on a battlefield, it was God's Angels that ushered June into a Heavenly Kingdom to the sound of a chorus of Angels...and into June's new home, a "Mansion on the Hilltop", where there is no pain, nor illness nor tears...June's funeral notice as published in the Minneapolis Star in October 2008 can be seen on this website in the drop down menu under the "In Memoriam" label - just Click on:
