AnneMC here's a quick stab at it...

TEARS IN THE HOLSTON RIVER
Words and music by Johnny Cash
As recorded by Johnny Cash with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" (2002)


INTRO: 1/4/1/4/1/5/1

[1] On October [4] Twenty-[1]-Third, Nineteen [4] Seventy-[1]-Eight
I [4] lost a [1] loved one and I confess I [5] cried
In the [1] joyous [4] cele-[1]-bration of the [4] lady and her music
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River
When [5] Maybelle Carter [1] died [1-7]

Then [4] walking down that river road
I saw [1] crystal tear-shaped droplets
Silver beads of love sparklin' on the river [5] side
And I'll just [1] bet they turn to diamonds
For the [4] love that was behind 'em
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River
When [5] Mother Maybelle [1] died

Then on [1] Janu-[4]-ary [1] Eighth, Nineteen-[4]-Seventy-[1]-Nine
We lost [4] Sara [1] Carter
And the pain was multi-[5]-plied
Down be-[1]-low that [4] old Clinch [1] Mountain
We [4] laid her at Mount Vernon
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River
When [5] Sara Carter [1] died

Then [4] walking down that river road
I [1] saw crystal tear-shaped droplets
Silver beads of love sparklin' in the river-[5]-side
And I'll just [1] bet they turn to diamonds
For the [4] love that was behind 'em
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River
When [5] Maybelle & Sara [1] died

TAG:
There were [1] tears in the [4] Holston [1] River
When Mother [4] Maybelle and [1] Sara [5] Carter [1] died

Lyrics transcribed by Gene/Chords by ZOOMER

For RA or MP3, PM gene

[Here's another copy of the lyrics without the chords:]

1. On October twenty-third, nineteen seventy-eight,
I lost a loved one, and I confess I cried.
In the joyous celebration of the lady and her music,
There were tears in the Holston River when Maybelle Carter died.

CHORUS: Then walking down that river road I saw crystal tear-shaped droplets,
Silver beads of love sparklin' on the river's tide,
And I'll just bet they turn to diamonds for the love that was behind 'em.
There were tears in the Holston River when Mother Maybelle died.

2. Then on January eighth, nineteen seventy-nine,
We lost Sara Carter and the pain was multiplied.
Down below that old Clinch Mountain, we laid her at Mount Vernon.
There were tears in the Holston River when Sara Carter died.

[CHORUS, ending with:]
There were tears in the Holston River when Maybelle & Sara died.
[TAG:]
There were tears in the Holston River when Mother Maybelle and Sara Carter died.
