My Woman My Woman My Wife
By Marty Robbins
C                         Em 
Hands that are strong but wrinkled 
      F                    G7
Doing work that never gets done

C                            Em
Hair that's lost some of its beauty 
   F                     G7
By too many hours in the sun

C                       Em              
Eyes that show some disappointment  
    F                               G7
And there's been quite a lot in her life
C                      D7         
She's the foundation I lean on 
C         G7        C
My woman  my woman  my wife
                  Em          F 
Everyday has been uphill   we climb
But we can't reach the top

    C                      Em            
I'm weak and I'm easily discouraged  
    F                          G7
She just smiles when I want to stop

C                       Em      

Lips that are weary but tender 
     F                        G7  
With love that strengthens my life

  C                        F 
A saint in a dress made of gingham  
   C          G7         C 
My woman   my woman   my wife

F                      EM                      
Two little babies were born in the spring  
    F             G7         C 
But died when the winter was new
Am                   Em           
I lost control of my mind and my soul  
       D7                       G7 
But my woman's faith carried us through

C                     Em     

When she reaches that river  
F                        G7
Lord you know what she's worth
C                        Em          
Give her that mansion up yonder  
Cause she's been thru hell here on earth

C                         Em              
Lord give her my share of heaven  
        F                       G7
If I've earned any here in this life
      C                    F             
Cause God  I believe she deserves it  
   C          G7        C
My woman   my woman  my wife
