In The Summer Of His Years Lyrics

In The Summer Of His Years - Connie Francis (康妮 法蓝西斯)

Written by:Herbert Kretzmer/David Lee

A young man rode

 

With his head held high

 

Under the Texas sun

 

And no one guessed

That a man so blessed

 

Would perish by the gun

 

Lord would perish by the gun

 

A shot rang out

 

Like a sudden shout

 

And heaven held its breath

 

For the dreams of

A multitude of men

 

Rode with him to his death

 

Lord rode with him to his death

 

Yes the heart of

The world weighs heavy

 

With the helplessness of tears

 

For the man cut down

 

In a Texas town

 

In the summer of his years

 

The summer of his years

 

And we who stay

 

Mustn't ever lose

 

The victories that he'd won

 

For wherever man

 

Looked to freedom back

 

His soul goes riding on

 

Lord his soul goes riding on
