    Married by the Bible, Divorced by the Law 
                           1952
                    Recorded by Hank Snow


(G)
What a strange world we live in, 
       (C)                (A7)
What a shame, Oh what a shame!
(D)                                               (G)
Someone’s always quarrellin’ the marriage don’t remain.
                                  (C)           (A7)
Divorces by the thousands; is the human race insane?
  (D)                                               (G)
I always thought that marriage should be a sacred thing.



CHORUS
                     (C)                (A7)
Married By The Bible Divorced By The Law;
(D)                                                 (G)
Ev’ry day there’s more and more, the worst I ever saw.
                                                 (C)
Things have changed, they’re not the same as the days of 
                                                        (A7)
                                                 Ma and Pa,
           (D)                                        (G)
They were married by the Bible, no divorces by the law.




                           (C)             (A7)
Steps are often taken with-out thinking twice
    (D)
And often there’s a child or two who’s left to pay the 
                                                     (G)
                                                     price.
                                      (C)
Those little hearts so innocent they don’t know who’s to 
                                                      (A7)
                                                     blame,
    (D)                                                 (G)
No Mom and Dad to love them, what a shame, oh what a shame!



                    Repeat CHORUS
