The Last Time I Saw Her

The last time I saw her face,
Her eyes were bathed in starlight,
And her hair hung long.
The last time she spoke to me,
Her lips were like the scented flowers
Inside a rain-drenched forest.
 
But that was so long ago
That I can scarcely feel
The way I felt before.
And if time could heal the wounds,
I would tear the threads away,
That I might bleed some more!
 
The last time I walked with her,
Her laughter was the steeple bells
That ring to greet the morning sun,
A voice that called to everyone
To love the ground we walked upon.
Those were the days!
 
The last time I held her hand,
Her touch was autumn, spring, and summer,
And winter, too.
The last time I let go of her,
She walked away into the night.
I lost her in the misty streets.
A thousand months, a thousand years,
When other lips will kiss her eyes.
A million miles beyond the moon,
That's where she is.
 
But that was so long ago
That I can scarcely feel
The way I felt before.
And if time could heal the wounds,
I would tear the threads away,
That I might bleed some more!
 
The last time I saw her face,
Her eyes were bathed in starlight,
And she walked alone.
The last time she kissed my cheek,
Her lips were like the wilted leaves
Upon the autumn-covered hills.
Resting on the frozen ground,
The seeds of love lie cold and still.
Beneath a battered marking stone,
It lies forgotten.

I created this transcription myself by listening to the song on the CD in my collection. Transcriptions I find online invariably contain errors and they completely lack punctuation. I end up spending the same amount of time, in the end, as I would if I just did it myself. So this time, I just did it myself.

The CD is from a German label named Bear Family Records, BCD 15699. Near as I can tell, the CD was released in 1992. It consists of both of Lightfoot's third and fourth albums, "Did She Mention My Name" and "Back Here on Earth," the former released in early 1968, the latter later that same year, both of which vinyl records I still own, although I have no idea if they are even playable any more. This song is from the former album.

I'll say it over and over. Gordon Lightfoot is a national treasure in Canada. It is impossible to be a bigger star than he is. And that's been true for 50 or so years. He's pretty much on the same level as Maurice Richard.

This song has a twin.

Here's Gord's biography http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Lightfoot, an article about the album http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Did_She_Mention_My_Name, and an article about the song http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Time_I_Saw_Her_%28song%29.
