Dearest darling
Dearest darling
Dearest darling

Don't you know, the Lord above, created you, just for me to love
Picked you out, from all the rest, because he knew I loved you best

Dearest darling
Dearest darling
Dearest darling, take my hand, take my hand

I once had a heart, so trill and true
But now it's gone, from me to you
Take care of it, like I have done
For you have two hearts, and I have none

Dearest darling
Dearest darling
Dearest darling

If I get to heaven, before you do
I'll try to make a hole, and pull you thru

Dearest, dearest. dearest.

If I go to heaven, and you not there,
I'm gonna write your name, on the heavenly stair
If you aren't there, by turn of day,
Then I know baby, you know the way

Dearest, dearest, dearest
O sweet baby, o sweet baby...
