Word Or Two To Mary Lyrics
A word or two to Mary please write a letter for me

That's what my buddy said to me today

I couldn't keep from crying sad eyes're looking at me

He said I'll tell you what I wanted to say

Oh I don't mind dyin' I just hate to leave you alone

And I wish that I could watch the children grow

But there's no use denyin' I won't be coming back home

Just a word or two to you before I go



Down on my knees beside him I begged my buddy to live

I told the Lord to please take me instead

But a word or two to Mary was all my buddy could give

And just these words were all your husband said

Oh I don't mind dyin'...

[ steel ]

A word or two to Mary I must have some of my own

He was the truest friend I ever had

I'll keep writing letters to her help the children along

Tell them in a way that it's from their dad

He didn't mind dyin' he just hated to leave you alone

And he wished that he could see his children grow

I'll be standing by 'em as I know he'd want me to

And write a word or two to Mary as they grow

And write a word or two to Mary as they grow
