The Tie That Binds
Recorded by Jim Reeves

In a room so lonely and cheerless

Sits a woman all alone
By her a cradle stands empty
D7 G
And Doris she sobs and she moans

My husband he no longer loves me

His love and our dear baby died
I'll leave him at home forever
D7 G
Without him this old world abide

She packed baby's things in a bundle

While the tears rolled down her cheeks
I never no never would leave him
D7 G
If ever a kind word he'd speak

Just then the door softly was open

A man took the bundle away
He lay the things out on the table
D7 G
And softly to her he did say

One little stockin' for you dear
One little blue shoe is for me
The baby's wrap and its smallest cap
A7 D7
We'll keep in memory

G D7
One lock of hair is for you dear
See how the golden curl shines
We'll keep a smile while she sleeps for
D7 G
She is the tie that binds
