Porter Wagoner

Porter Wayne Wagoner (August 12, 1927 – October 28, 2007) was a popular American country music singer known for his flashy Nudie and Manuel suits and blond pompadour. In 1967, he introduced a then little known Dolly Parton on his long-running television show, and they were a well-known duet throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s. Known as Mr. Grand Ole Opry, Wagoner charted 81 singles from 1954–1983. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame. more »

While walking one day in the country I saw a gathering crowd
And as my footsteps threw me closer I smell the sweet fragnance of flowers 
It looked like a family reunion and my eyes not counted the tears 
And the no man said by the graveside I haven't seen Mary in years 

Hold my hand and leave me leave me away from here
I just brought these flowers for Mary I haven't seen Mary in years 
When Mary and I were first married we had such plans for our child 
But for no reason I started rambling and like four winds I just ran wild

If I could just live my life over I would bring Mary such cheer 
Now she's gone where she'll never need me I haven't seen Mary in years 
Hold my hand and leave me...
Then the old man left the graveyard and as I walk along by his side

When I called his name through all his shame why his son he didn't even rocognize 
Hold my hand and leave me leave me away from here
How could I know it was mama I haven't seen mama in years 
How could I know it was mama I haven't seen mama in years
