      About "There Was Nothing We Could Do"

      Lyrics for Bill Monroe - "There Was Nothing We Could Do"

      We all loved our fair tender maiden
      From her eyes the light of Heaven shone through
      She fell sick one cold winter morning
      And there was nothing we could do

      She lay on her death bed so bravely
      Her face all tired and worn
      We knew in our hearts she was leaving
      God had called her to His heavenly home

      As she lay on the bed she was smiling
      At the people all gathered a-round
      It was her only way of saying goodbye
      And tomorrow she'd lay neath the ground

      The fragrance of flowers from her grave
      Goes to heaven where she has gone too
      Mortal pain shown on all our faces
      But there was nothing we could do

      When the preacher began to console us
      His words rang out clear and true
      He said God called her that's the reason
      That there was nothing we could do
