This song has long been popular in bluegrass circles but has also had some exposure in folk and OT circles. Flatt a Scuggs do a nice version.
All the good times are past and gone.
All the good times are o'er.
All the good times are past and gone.
Little darling don't you weep no more.

I wish to the Lord I'd never been born
Or died when I was young.
I never would have seen your sparkling blue eyes
Or heard your lying tongue.

Don't you see that turtle dove
That flies from pine to pine?
He's mourning for his own true love
Just like I mourn for mine.
Don't you see that passenger train
Going around the bend?
It's talking away my own true love
To never return again.

Come back, come back my own true love
And stay a while with me.
For if ever I've had a friend in this world
You've been a friend to me.
