Marty Robbins – My Woman,My Woman,My Wife lyrics

Hands, that are strong but wrinkled
Doing work that never gets done
Hair, that’s lost some of its beauty
By too many hours in the sun
Eyes, that show some disappointment
And there’s been quite a lot in her life
She’s the foundation I lean on
My woman, my woman, my wife

Everyday has been uphill
We climb but we can’t reach the top
I’m weak and I’m easily discouraged
She just smiles when I want to stop
Lips, that are weary but tender
With love, that strengthens my life
A saint, in a dress made of gingham
My woman, my woman, my wife

Two little babies were born in the spring
But died when the winter was new
I lost control of my mind, and my soul
But my woman’s faith carried us through

When she reaches that river
Lord, you know what she’s worth
Give her that mansion up yonder
Cause she’s been thru hell here on earth
Lord, give her my share of heaven
If I’ve earned any here in this life
Cause God, I believe she deserves it
My woman, my woman, my wife
My woman, my woman, my wife
