'Til Death Do Us Part

Song Information
By: Dolly Parton
Original Appearance: My Blue Ridge Mountain Boy
Compilations: None
Alternate Versions: None


Today you told me that you'd found another
And you took off your golden wedding band
The one that you vowed you'd wear 'til death do us part
When I kissed it and placed it on your hand

A wreath will hang upon the door tomorrow
Of the little house that we once called our home
And friends will stop and hang their heads in sorrow
To pay their last respects to one gone on
Tonight I lay me down to sleep forever
With this small empty bottle and a broken heart
I'll keep the vows I made, I won't forsake it
I promised 'til death do us part

Will you bring your new love to the chapel?
To look upon the one that you betrayed
Will you bring me pretty flowers like you used to?
And place them in my hands where I lay
Will you cry and think of happy memories?
That we shared together at the start
And will you look upon me and remember
The day we said 'til death do us part?
