Broken Engagement
recorded by the Louvin Brothers
written by
Wayne P. Walker, Max Powell, Mary C. Rhodes
C G7 C C7
They were standing by a window on the night he kissed her cheek
F C G7 C
He had waited long in silence waited long for her to speak
G7 C C7
When at last she whispered softly as the cool breeze kissed her cheek
F C G7 C
She had waited long to tell him what they told her he has said
G7 C C7
Oh they say you love another that you never did love me
F C G7 C
If these words be true my darling I'll forever set you free

G7 C C7
They are truly part the answer as the shining stars above
F C G7 C
When they told you my intention then they told you of love
G7 C C7
He turned deathly pale and angry left her standing by the gate
F C G7 C
Sent a message to her sister but the message came to late
G7 C C7
God in heaven sent an angel to relieve her aching pain
F C G7 C
She went drifting off to heaven on an angel's snow white wing

G7 C C7
He was standing by her casket as he looked upon her face
F C G7 C
Then he realized that he loved her and no one could take her place
