G AmI buried him down by the river
C G'Cause thats where he liked to be.

C G By the river 'neath this willow tree
Bm Am And with God and friends witnessing on
Am C G He pledged his life to me
G Am C GTo me he was earth, I rooted in his soil.
G Am I to he was sky vast and free
C GOf the burdens from which he toiled.
D AmThen one night a terrible fight
C G Words spoken better left unsaid.
Bm Am With his wedding vows ringing in my ears
C GHe gave his life to me.
