THE LITTLE SHIRT MY MOTHER MADE FOR ME (Harry Wincott) Tom Woottwell - 1907 Bradley Kincaid - 1933 Wilf Carter - 1942 Marty Robbins - 1983 I'll never forget the day that I was born Was on a cold and frosty winter's morn' The doctor said I was a chubby chap But when the nurse, she took me on her lap She washed me all over, I remember And after powder-puffin' me, you see She laid me in the cradle by the window In the little shirt my Mother made for me When I began to crawl it was a sight I used to frighten Mom from morn' til night There's no mistake I was a lttle curse 'Cause when my Daddy, he came home from work Every night he would say, "Where's Little Sam got?" As down the kitchen, happy as could be They used to find me scrapin' out the jam pot In the little shirt my Mother made for me The first day that I wore my knickerbocks I felt so funny after wearin' smocks I looked a little picture, they did say But when they let me out to run and play Well, I didn't like the britches I was wearin' And in the street I took 'em off, you see I started walkin' home so bold and darin' In the little shirt my Mother made for me And then to school they said that I must go I didn't like my teacher, you must know And when I played the truant quite so dear The teacher said, "Now boy, you come here" With a big stick she beat around upon me There's no mistake about my pedigree I had the map of Scotland painted on me Neath that little shirt my mother made for me Last year when I was on my holiday Upon the briny ocean I did gaze The water looked so nice, I thought I'd go To have a swim, but, in a minute, oh All the girls along the beach at me were starin' And some were takin' pictures, I could see Was a good thing for me that I was wearin' The little shirt my Mother made for me
