I Cried But My Tears Were Too Late  
Written and recorded by Hank Snow

C G7 C
One heart too many I have broken love dreams that faded and died
G7 D7 G7
Too many teardrops have fallen too many vows cast aside
C G7 C
Soft wedding bells should be ringing for us in the chapel tonight
F C
But this morning they tolled and her bright band of gold
D7 G7
Was returned with this message tonight

C G7
Your sweetheart has left us today
C
Heart broken God took her away
F C
That silk gown of white for her wedding tonight
D7 G7
She wore as they laid her away

C G7
Though she died for a love all in vain
C
Her last words were calling your name
F
As I walked to her grave where the bluebonnets wave
C G7 C
I cried but my tears were too late

Spoken:

Tonight sweetheart as I kneel here alone beside you
And my tears stain the flowers on your grave
In deep regret I think of the heart that I have wounded
Of the sorrow and grief and the life that I could have saved

Yes tonight darling you were to be my loving bride
But all that I have left now as I bow to pray
Is your ring a picture the sad message that they sent me
And this rose that I am taking from your grave

C G7
Though she died for a love all in vain
C
Her last words were calling my name
F
As I walked to her grave where the bluebonnets wave
C G7 C
I cried but my tears were too late
