Lonely Mound Of Clay

Song Author Roy Acuff Performer: the Louvin Brothers Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]Beside a new made grave heart[C]broken
My [G]love for her won't let me go [D7]away   
And [G]leave her there to sleep [C]forever
All [G]alone beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

Oh Lord why did you take her [C]from me
Why [G]didn't you take me [D7]away   
So [G]I could have been there be[C]side her
All [G]alone beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

Many times I've looked toward [C]heaven
And [G]prayed that she wouldn't go [D7]away   
But [G]this sinner's prayer was never [C]answered
So now she's [G]sleeping beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

Oh Lord why did you take her [C]from me
Why [G]didn't you take me [D7]away   
So [G]I could have been there be[C]side her
All [G]alone beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

So I'll stay here beside you little [C]darling
And [G]I promise that I'll never go [D7]away   
Un[G]til my life down here is [C]over
Then we'll [G]meet beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

Oh Lord why did you take her [C]from me
Why [G]didn't you take me [D7]away   
So [G]I could have been there be[C]side her
All [G]alone beneath that [D7]lonely mound of [G]clay

Beside a new made grave heartbroken
My love for her won't let me go away
And leave her there to sleep forever
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

Oh Lord why did you take her from me
Why didn't you take me away
So I could have been there beside her
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

Many times I've looked toward heaven
And prayed that she wouldn't go away
But this sinner's prayer was never answered
So now she's sleeping beneath that lonely mound of clay

Oh Lord why did you take her from me
Why didn't you take me away
So I could have been there beside her
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

So I'll stay here beside you little darling
And I promise that I'll never go away
Until my life down here is over
Then we'll meet beneath that lonely mound of clay

Oh Lord why did you take her from me
Why didn't you take me away
So I could have been there beside her
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay
