The Old Mission Lyrics

She visits the place that the tour groups must have
she's shocked to find somebody there
With a sun-beaten face, and a silver-grey head
He knelt on the floor unaware

He said "I'm sorry madam" as he lent her his hand
"I know I must be a strange sight
but I've been coming here for some thirty odd years
ever since my sweet lady died
but I sure am glad you listened
Oh, I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
ever since that day"

Oh, that summer we met, only fools could forget
just how perfect a woman could be
by the time she was late, we had both set a date
in a place where she would marry me

but a gringo brought shame to their proud family name
and her father forbade it to be
so in less than a week, we found her by the creek
and the parents blamed it all on me

but I sure am glad you listened
and I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
ever since that day

well, her name was marie
and the day she met me
was the worst day of both of our lives
If it wasn't for me, I would truly believe
my sweetheart could still be alive

She said "Darling believe don't you recognize me?
Though you waited here all of this time
They had shipped me away to my family in Spain
we can get on with our lives
we still have plenty of time

'cause I sure am glad I listened
Oh, I sure am glad I came
I made looking for you my mission
ever since that day

oh, I sure am glad you listened
oh, I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
ever since that day

and I sure am glad you listened
Oh, I sure am glad you came
I've been waiting here in this mission
ever since that day

May God bless you, have a good day"
