VERSE 1

F C

In a little country village

F C

I met a man and he was blind

C

As I helped him across the highway

C G C

I cried thy burdens are greater than mine

F

I can see the light of day

C

And I need not feel my way

C G C

Yes thy burdens are greater than mine

VERSE 2

Saw a lad while on his travels

Trying hard to play the game

Though his legs were very crippled

And he could not speak his name

Still he smiled in understanding

Though life to him had been unkind

As I watched I thought in sorrow

Son 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

VERSE 3

Just by chance I passed a graveyard

Saw a young man kneeling there

In his hand there were some roses

On his lips there was a prayer

On a stone these words were written

My soul is gone my memory done

As I watched I thought in sorrow

Friend thy burdens are greater than mine

Just a drifter on the road

Got no friends I got no home

Yes thy burdens are greater than mine
