Simon Crutchfield's Grave Submit Correct Lyrics

Now I remember very well a tale my daddy used to tell
About old Simon Crutchfield and a friend
Now Mary was his pretty wife and they loved every breath of life
Before they took ol' Riley Harper in

Now Simon plowed and worked the fields and Mary cooked their meals
While Riley kept an eye out on the place
Still no one knows just when this episode came to an end
They only knew of Simon Crutchfield's grave.

Mary Crutchfield (Mary Crutchfield)
You should be ashamed
Get on your knees and pray your soul be saved
Riley Harper (Riley Harper)
If the devil is to blame
Why can't you drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave?

In the year of eighteen sixty four, a blizzard came across the moor
And all the crops were sold out, none was saved
And the only way to get to town was a wagon road that wound around
And through the woods past Simon Crutchfield's grave

Now some folks say that they lay there at least six months or more
Before an old fur trapper found their bones
He claimed they wrote their epitaphs upon the cabin door
Just as it reads today on marble stone

Mary Crutchfield (Mary Crutchfield)
Here lies Mary Crutchfield
Cause she betrayed the love that Simon gave
Riley Harper (Riley Harper)
Here lies Riley Harper
Cause he couldn't drive by Simon Crutchfield's grave.
