RichM, you beat me to posting the lyrics.

Don't know if this will help. Here's a site with a great real audio file of the song as sung by Bill Monroe. You need to scroll down to the Bill Monroe section then continue to Disc #3--it is towards the end of the disk 3 listings.

Real Audio

Cheers,

Mary

Subject: Lyr Add: I HAVEN'T SEEN MARY IN YEARS (Damon Black
From: Jim Dixon

From a recording on YouTube by Mel Tillis:


I HAVEN'T SEEN MARY IN YEARS
Damon Black

While walking one day in the country, I saw a gathering crowd,
And as my footsteps drew me closer, I smelled the sweet fragrance of flowers.
It looked like a family reunion, had my eyes not counted the tears.
An old man sat by a graveside. I haven't seen Mary in years

CHORUS: Hold my hand and lead me. Lead 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. Like the four winds I just ran wild.
If I could just live my life over, I would bring Mary such cheers.
Now she's gone where she'll never need me. I haven't seen Mary in years.

CHORUS.

Then the old man left the graveyard, and I walked along by his side.
I called out his name, but through all his shame, his son he did not recognize.

LAST CHORUS: Hold to my hand and lead me. Lead me away from here.
How could I know it was Mama? I haven't seen Mama in years.


[Recorded by Bill Monroe, Mel Tillis, Porter Wagoner and a few others.]

Damon Black could pull on the heartstrings. He wrote a lot of good songs but this is one of the few that got much attention.
