This iconic song would go on to become Conway’s concert opener. Oftentimes, singing it with his favorite co-singer, Loretta lynn. It’s a beautiful song that is even more lovely when sung by two of Country Music’s greatest artists!
Lyrics to Conway Twitty: “Hello, Darlin”
Hello, darling, nice to see you
It’s been a long time
You’re just as lovely as you used to be
How’s your new love?
Are you happy?
Hope you’re doing fine
Just to know it means so much to me
What’s that, darling? How am I doing?
Guess I’m doing all right
Except I can’t sleep and I cry all night ’til dawn
What I’m trying to say is I love you and I miss you
And I’m sorry that I did you wrong
Look up, darling
Let me kiss you just for old time’s sake
Let me hold you in my arms one more time
Thank you, darling
May God bless you and may each step you take
Bring you closer to the things you seek to find
Goodbye, darling, gotta go now
Gotta try to find a way to lose these memories
Of a love so warm and true
And if you should ever find it in your heart to forgive me
Come back, darling, I’ll be waiting for you
Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn in Concert Oslo 1970
