Recorded by hank williams
Words and music by pee wee king and redd stewart

[c] travelin' [g7] down a lonely high-[c] way
I knew not [f] where the road would [c] end
Not a [f] penny in my [c] pocket
All a-[g7] lone without a [c] friend
In a [g7] little country [c] village
I met a [f] man and he was [c] blind
As I [f] helped him cross the high-[c] way
Oh! [am] lord I cried his [c] burdens are [g7] greater than [c] mine.

I can [f] see the light of day
I [c] need not feel my way
Yes, thy burdens are [g7] greater than [c] mine.

Met a lad while on my travels
Tryin' hard to play the game
Though his leg was very crippled
And he could not speak his name
Yet, he smiled in understandin'
Though life to him had been unkind
And as I watched, I cried in sorrow
Oh! lord his burdens are greater than mine.

I can speak my name aloud
Make my way among the crowd
Yes, his burdens are greater than mine.

Just by chance I passed a graveyard
I saw a young man kneelin' there
In his hand, there were some roses
On his lips, there was a prayer
On a stone, these words were written
'your soul is god's, your mem'ry mine'
And as I watched, I cried in sorrow
Oh! lord I see his burdens are greater than mine.

cd Buy "Other Songs THE - M" CD
  1. The pale horse and his rider
  2. The prodigal son
  3. The seamans blues
  4. The tramp on the street
  5. The waltz of the wind
  6. There'll be no teardrops tonight
  7. There's a tear in my beer
  8. There's no room in my heart for the blue
  9. There's nothing as sweet as my baby
  10. Thy burdens are greater than mine
  11. Too many parties (too many pals)
  12. Two faced preacher
  13. We live in two different worlds
  14. We're getting closer to the grave each day
  15. Wearin' out your walkin' shoes
  16. Weary blues (from waitin')
  17. When the book of life is read
  18. Where the soul of man never dies
  19. Why should i cry
  20. Why should we try anymore
  21. With tears in my eyes
  22. Won't you sometimes think of me
  23. You broke your own heart
  24. You can't take my memoriues of you
  25. You caused it all by telling lies
  26. You win again
  27. You're barkin' up the wrong tree now
  28. Your turn to cry
  29. My Son Calls Another Man Daddy
