The words of her promise
The flame of her faith
The love that would never drift away
Where did they go Lord, where did they go?

You know somehow forever
Slipped out of my hands
And my dreams ran away with the wind
Where did they go Lord, where did they go

You know sometimes I wish
I had lost her to another
Well but Lord she just walked off all alone
And the heart that's within me is not bitter just hurt
And bewildered because her love had gone

Oh the passion I trusted
The truth that I leaned on
And the hope that would forever keep me strong
I cry out my questions
Oh, the answers are all gone
Where did they go Lord, tell me where did they go
Where did they go Lord, tell me where did they go
Recorded: 1970/09/22, first released on single

Not a great song, but a great performance by Elvis nevertheless.

A powerful striking ballad that sounds at times almost funereal with its arrangement, has Elvis giving a strong committed performance that coupled with Rags To Riches hit the US top 40.
I do agree it was not really single material for the time but definitely a great addition to any album.

Good song, certainly not single material for the early 70's but would have fit nicely say on the Love Letters LP as opposed to some of the bland songs on that album.
