IT'S THE RING YOUR MOTHER WORE (N. Allen) The Horatio Nicholls Five - 1921 Pat Lynch & The Airchords - 1968 Also recorded by: Hugo Duncan An old man was bidding his daughter goodbye His roof she was leaving that day You're going to be married, he said with a sigh >From the the old home you're going away I can't give you riches, it's true But here is a gift I have treasured for you It's the ring your Mother wore On the day she took my name Just a plain gold band I placed on her hand When my partner in life she became It's a simple gift I know And my fondest hope will be May it bring the joy to you and your boy That it brought to your Mother and me It says you must both pull together through life And greet all your cares with a smile Remember your Mother and be a good wife She was loving and true all the while And Darling, wherever you go This keepsake will bring you good fortune, I know It's the ring your Mother wore On the day she took my name Just a plain gold band I placed on her hand When my partner in life she became It's a simple gift I know And my fondest hope will be May it bring the joy to you and your boy That it brought to your Mother and me May it bring the joy to you and your boy That it brought to your Mother and me (Transcribed from the Pat Lynch recording by Mel Priddle - October 2006)
