I Cried But My Tears Were Too Late Lyrics

Artist: Hank Snow
Album: The Singing Ranger

One heart too many I have broken love dreams that faded away
Too many teardrops have fallen too many vows cast aside
Soft wedding bells should be ringing for us in the chapel tonight
But this morning they tolled and her bright band of gold
Was returned with this message tonight

Your sweetheart has left us today heart broken God took her away
That silk gown of white for her wedding tonight
She wore as they laid her away
Though she died for a love all in vain her last words were calling your name
As I walked to her grave where the bluebonnets wave
I cried but my tears were too late

Tonight sweetheart as I kneel here alone beside you
And my tears stain the flowers on your grave
In deep regret I think of the heart that I have wounded
Of the sorrow and grief and the life that I could have saved
Yes tonight darling you were to be my loving bride
But all that I have left now as I bow to pray
Is your ring a picture the sad message that they sent me
And this rose that I am taking from your grave
Though she died for a love...
