Porter WagonerThy Burdens Are Greater Than Mine

Travelin' down a lonely highway I knew not where the road would end Not a penny in my pocket all alone without a friend Met a lad while on my travel tryin' hard to play the game Though his legs were very very crippled And he couldn't even speak his name. But he smiled in understanding though life to him had been so unkind As I watched I bowed in sorrow oh Lord Thy burdens are greater than mine I can speak my name aloud make my way among the crowd Yes, Thy burdens are greater than mine. In a little country village I met a lad and he was blind As I helped him across the highway I cried oh Lord Thy burdens are much greater than mine I can see the light of day and I need not feel my way. Yes Thy burdens are greater than mine Just by chance I passed a graveyard saw a young man kneeling there In his hands he held some roses on his lips I saw a prayer On the thomb these words were written' her soul is God's her mem'ry mine. As I watched I cried in sorrow oh Lord I see Thy burdens are greater than mine...
