Lonely Mound of Clay

Lonely Mound of Clay

Roy Acuff

Beside a new made grave heartbroken my love for her
Won't let me go away
And leave her there to sleep forever all alone beneath
That lonely mound of clay

Oh Lord, why did you take her from me?
Why didn't you take me away?
So I could have been there beside her
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay

Many times I've looked toward heaven
And pray she wouldn't be taken away
But this sinner's prayer is never answered
So she's sleeping now beneath the clay

I stay here beside you little darling
And I promise that I'll never go away
Until my life down here is over
Then I'll be with you beneath the clay

Oh Lord, why did you take her from me?
Why didn't you take me away?
So I could have been there beside her
All alone beneath that lonely mound of clay
