Hank Snow – Married By The Bible, Divorced By The Law lyrics

Album: Legendary

Words and Music by Johnny Rector
Recorded by Hank Snow

What a strange world we live in, what a shame, Oh what a shame!
Someone's always quarrellin? the marriage don't remain.
Divorces by the thousands; is the human race insane?
I always thought that marriage should be a sacred thing.

Married By The Bible Divorced By The Law;
Ev'ry day there's more and more, the worst I ever saw.
Things have changed, they're not the same as the days of Ma and Pa,
They were married by the Bible, no divorces by the law.

Steps are often taken without thinking twice
And oft? times there's a child or two who's left to pay the price.
Those little hearts so innocent they don't know who's to blame,
No Mom and Dad to love them, what a shame, oh what a shame!
