Thy Burdens Are Greater Than Mine  Ralph Stanley



[C] [G] [C]  
In a l[F]ittle country v[C]illage
I met a [F]man and he was b[C]lind
As I [C]helped him across the highway
I cried thy [C]burdens are [G]greater than [C]mine
I can s[F]ee the light of day
And I [C]need not feel my way
Yes thy b[C]urdens are [G]greater than [C]mine
Saw a lad while on his travels
Trying hard to play the game
Though his legs were very crippled
And he could not speak his name
Still he smiled in understanding
Though life to him had been unkind
As I watched I thought in sorrow
Son thy burdens are greater than mine
I can speak my name aloud
Make my way among the crowd
Yes thy burdens are greater than mine
Just by chance I passed a graveyard
Saw a young man kneeling there
In his hand there were some roses
On his lips there was a prayer
On a stone these words were written
My soul is gone my memory done
As I watched I thought in sorrow
Friend thy burdens are greater than mine
Just a drifter on the road
Got no friends I got no home
Yes thy burdens are greater than mine
