Jean Shepard – The Mysteries Of Life lyrics

So many beautiful stories are told of love and affection that's purer than gold
They meet and they love and he makes her his wife
And wife can't last this a mystery of life
I love you my darling I've always been true wherever you go I'll be thinking of you
You say you don't want me you wish to be free
If that's what you want that's the way it will be
It's a mystery of life cause someone so sweet
Can pass you aside to be dirt at their feet
They'll take you and court you and make you their wife
And wife can't last this a mystery of life
[ guitar ]
When daddy told mother till death do us part
He said it and meant it right from the heart
But now it is different how people have changed
The words of the Bible it don't mean a thing
God made the ocean the land and the trees
He made the flowers the birds and the bees
Why he first missed all this trouble and strife that is just one of the mysteries of life
It's a mystery of life...
