I just brought these flowers for Mary I haven't seen Mary in years
When Mary and I were first married we had such plans for our child
But for no reason I started rambling and like four winds I just ran wild

Hold my hand and leave me...
Then the old man left the graveyard and as I walk along by his side

When I called his name through all his shame why his son he didn't even rocognize
Hold my hand and leave me leave me away from here
How could I know it was mama I haven't seen mama in years
How could I know it was mama I haven't seen mama in years
