A Short Life And It

A Short Life And It's Troubles

Maddox Bros. And Rose

(G.B. Grayson , )

A short life and it's troubles
And a few more words to part
A short life and it's troubles, little girl
For a boy with a broken heart

You know what you promised
Not more than a week ago
You promised that you would marry me
A-standing in your mama's door


And it's now you've broken your promise
Go marry whom you please
This world's so big, so deep and so wide
I'll ramble back some day


I hear a train a-coming
A-blowing a station blow
I'd rather be there than in my grave
And to see my darling go
