Conway Twitty — When The Grass Grows Over Me lyrics

When you left I thought that I would soon get over you
Even told myself that I would find somebody too
Time and tears have come and gone but not your memory
I'll be over you when the grass grows over me.

Yes, I'll be over you when you're standing over me
And as you look down at the cold cold ground I'm sleeping in
Don't expect to hear me say that I still love you then
'Cause I'll be over you when the grass grows over me.

--- Instrumental ---

Even when my eyes are closed they keep on seeing you
Every minute I'm alive I'm hurting through and through
And as long as I live I know I won't be free
I'll be over you when the grass grows over me.

I'll be over you when you're standing over me
And as you look down at the cold cold ground I'm sleeping in
Don't expect to hear me say that I still love you then
'Cause I'll be over you when the grass grows over me...
