I haven't seen Mary in years

While walking one day in the country
I saw a gathering crowd
And as my footsteps drew me closer
I smelled the sweet fragrance of flowers
It looking like a family reunion
Had my eyes not counted the tears
And an old man sat by a graveyard
I haven't seen Mary in years

    Hold to my hand and lead me
    Lead me away from here
    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 out child
But for no reason I started rambling
And like the four winds I just went wild
If I could live my life over
I would bring Mary such cheer
Now she's gone where she'll never meet me
I haven't seen Mary in years

  * Refrain

Then the old man left the graveyard
And I walked right by his side
I called his name but through all his shame
His son he did not recognize
Hold to my hand and lead me
Lead me away from here
How could I know it was Mama
I haven't seen Mary in years
