Beside a new made grave heartbroken my love for her won't let me go away
And leave her there to sleep forever all alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

Oh Lord why did you take her from me why didn't you take me away
So I could have been there beside her all alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

Many times I've looked toward heaven and pray she wouldn't be taken away
But this sinner's prayer is never answered so she's sleeping now beneath the clay
[ dobro ]
I stay here beside you little darling and I promise that I'll never go away
Until my life down here is over then I'll be with you beneath the clay

Oh Lord why did you take her...
