Mother is Gone Lyrics

by Hank Williams

In a little pine grove by the old home
There's someone who's restin' alone
And there on the the tomb, these words I read
The words were, 'Mother Is Gone'

Mother is gone to her home
Way up in Heaven above
And my heart's so sad
For the words I read there
The words were, 'Mother Is Gone'

As I stood alone with memories of home
The place I left long, long ago
I returned home but I waited too long
For the words read, 'Mother Is Gone'

My friends did say, before she went away
She called my name over and over
So trustin' in God's love, I'll meet her above
Over on that other shore

Mother is gone to her home
Way up in heaven above
And my heart's so sad
For the words I read there
The words were, 'Mother Is Gone'
