A Word or Two to Mary  Charley Pride

A Word Or Two To Mary
Chraley Pride
[C]A word or two to Mary, please w[F]rite a letter for [C]me,
That's what my buddy said to [G7]me to--d[C]ay
I couldn't keep from cryin', sad [F]eyes are lookin' at [C]me,
He said I'll tell you w[G7]hat I wanted to [C]say.
Oh, I don't mind dyin', I just [F]hate to leave you [C]alone,
And I wish that I could watch the children g[G7]row
But there's [C]no use denyin' I[F] won't be comin' b[C]ack home,
Just a word or two to y[G7]ou before I g[C]o.
Down on my knees beside him I [F]begged my buddy to l[C]ive,
I told the Lord to please take [G7]me in--s[C]tead
But a word or two to Mary was a[F]ll my buddy could [C]give,
And just these words were [G7]all your husband [C]said.
A word or two to Mary, I m[F]ust add some of my [C]own,
He was the truest friend [G7] I ever [C]had
I'll keep writing letters to her, h[F]elp the children a[C]long,
Tell them in a way t[G7]hat it's from their [C]Dad.
He didn't mind dyin'. he just [F]hated to leave you [C]alone,
And he wished that he could see his c[G7]hildren g[C]row
I'll be standing by them, as I [F]know he'd want me [C]to,
And write a word or two to M[G7]ary as they [C]grow.
And write a word or two to M[G7]ary as they [C]grow.
