(Dolly Parton)

Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone
I can still remember Mama washing on a rub board
On the back porch, while us kids played in the yard
Mama always seemed to be so happy and content
She never seemed to mind that times were hard

She went about her work singin' some old favorite song of hers
And often singin' favorite songs for us
And she was satisfied just bein' Mama to us children
And the only woman Daddy ever loved

Take me back to Mama's bosom
Back to Daddy's lovin' arms
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone

I can still remember us a runnin' to meet Daddy
In the evening when his working day was done
When Daddy saw us comin' he would bend his tired old back
Holdin' out his arms, and into them we'd run

And he'd hold us for a minute, we'd all walk home together
While Mama waited for him at the door
And he was satisfied just bein' Daddy to us children
And the man my Mama lived her whole life for

Take me back to Mama's bosom
Back to Daddy's lovin' arms
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone
Take me back, oh precious memories
To the days forever gone
