1080pHD Moody River by Pat Boone. This was the title track from one of Pat Boone's better-selling albums from June 1961. Lуяιcѕ ♥

Thanks for sharing info about Chase Webster (Gary D. Bruce), the writer of this great song and who recorded it first. Link to his version and the original.

Fun bit of trivia: Moody River was written by Gary D Bruce and first recorded by him in 1961 using his performer name Chase Webster. His original words were "more deadly than the SHARPEST knife" but during the recording session the P in "sharPest" kept popping so rather than find a different mike, Gary (Chase) changed sharpest to "VAINEST" on the spot and probably very little if any thought went into the meaning of vainest. When Pat Boone recorded it a couple of months later Dot Records chief, Randy Wood checked to make sure the lyric was correct before releasing the record. Pat Boone says he had no idea what a "vainest knife" was and just sang the lyrics as written. Pat's Moody River topped the charts on June 17, 1961.

(Moody River Moody River)
Moody River more deadly
Than the vainest knife
Moody River your muddy water
Took my baby's life

Last Saturday evening
I came to the old oak tree
It stands beside the river
Where you were to meet me

On the ground your glove I found
With a note addressed to me
It read dear love I've done you wrong
Now I must set you free

No longer can I live
With this hurt and this sin
I just couldn't tell you
That guy was just a friend

Moody River more deadly
Than the vainest knife
Moody River your muddy water
Took my baby's life

I looked into the muddy waters
And what could I see
I saw a lonely lonely face
Just looking back at me

Tears in his eyes
And a prayer on his lips
And the glove of his lost love
At his fingertips

Moody River more deadly
Than the vainest knife
Moody River your muddy water
Took my baby's life
