[C] The tears and sorrow I have [G7] caused her How I wish I could re-[C] pay But tell her I'll be waiting [G7] for her We'll meet in heaven some glad [C] day. ... [C7] How she cried when I left her I know it filled her heart with pain She said, "Son, please don't leave me For we may never meet again."
