MY MOTHER (Zeke Clements / Hank Snow) Hank Snow - 1951 (You're just an angel and I love you) There are friends who will want you, but just for a day There are pals you think true, but they'll cast you away But there's one loving soul, boys, I'll sure recommend Through this old world of sorrow she'll be true till the end Mother, though her hands are all wrinkled and old Mother, silver hair that has lost all the gold (You left her alone went to roam through the years) (But all that you left her was heartaches and tears) So kiss her old brow whisper softly and true Mother, you're just an angel and I love you SPOKEN: On the door of a cottage a wreath sadly hung And a hearse stood there waiting as the choir softly sung There were flowers in their beauty and the old Parson he prayed This was the last tribute as they left for her grave She won't meet you tonight son when you crave her caress She has reared you to manhood and now you've laid her to rest Those flowers in their beauty, ah, to her they're unknown 'Cause tonight she's with the angels up around God's great throne So don't wait that late, son, to try and repay Give those flowers and give those treasures and give them today Let her know that you love her and kinda show her that you care 'Cause she's your mother, God love her, she's as true as a prayer So kiss her old brow whisper softly and true Mother, you're just an angel and I love you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2013)
