WHEN IT'S LAMPLIGHTING TIME IN THE VALLEY (Harold Goodman / Sam C. Hart / Joe Lyons / Curt Poulton / Dean Upson) The Vagabonds - 1933 Also recorded by: Marty Robbins; Tex Ritter; Slim Dusty; Wayne King; Hylo Brown; Bob King; Lester Flat; Ann Case; Mac Wiseman; Norman Blake & Rich O'Brien. There's a lamp burning bright in a cabin In a window it's shining for me And I know that my mother is praying For her boy she is longing to see When it's lamp lighting time in the valley Then in dreams I go back to my home I can see that old light in the window It will guide me wherever I roam In the lamplight each night I can see her As she rocks in her chair to and fro Though she prays that I'll come back to see her Still I know that I never can go When it's lamplighting time in the valley Then in dreams I go back to my home But I've sinned against my home and my loved ones And now I must evermore roam So she lights up the lamp and keeps waiting For she knows not the crime I have done But I'll change all my ways and I'll meet her Up in Heaven when life's race is run When it's lamp lighting time in the valley Then in dreams I go back to my home I can see that old light in the window It will guide me wherever I roam ********** As recorded by MARTY ROBBINS: There's a lamp shining bright in a cabin In a window it's shinin' for me And I know that my mother is prayin' For the boy she is longing to see When it's lamplighting time I can see her As she rocks in her chair to and fro But I know that I'll never more see her 'Cause she's gone to a good place I know Oh, she lights up her lamp and sits waiting For she knows not the crime that I've done But I'll change all my ways and I'll meet her Up in Heaven when life's race is run When it's lamplighting time in the valley And in dreams I go back to my home I can see that old lamp in the window It will guide me where ever I roam ********** (Contributed by Mel - July 2008)
