Memories of a War & Short Stories
by Avery L. Weeks


"Everything on earth
is but the dust of fallen
stars, and man himself
was once inside a star."

One Broken Heart Two Wedding Rings

This tune was originally titled "How Red the Rose," but the publisher


rejected the original lyric stating it was "too poetic". The publisher was


delighted when it morphed into "One Broken Heart Two Wedding


Rings," which was written in an hour outside of the publishers office


that day in 1956. I have always preferred the original lyric and it is


included here:


How Red the Rose lyric


She left me tonight


And so the story goes


How sad my heart


How red the rose


What am I to do


Forget her I suppose


How my heart's blue


How red the rose 


Those years of laughter


And these few tears


Are ever after my souvenirs


I need her tonight


And only hope she knows


How sad my heart


How red the rose
