MOTHER'S NOT DEAD (She's Only A-Sleeping) (Charlie Monroe) Recorded by : Roy Acuff; Charlie Monroe; Vernon Oxford. I Left my old home way back in the mountains Mother was called to heaven that day They carried my mother up to the graveyard Ev'rything's lonesome since she went a-way. CHORUS Mother's Not Dead, she's only a-sleeping Just patiently waiting for Jesus to come The birds will be singing while mother lies sleeping They will sing o'er her as the grave fades a-way. Nothing seems right around the old home place Even the place where we used to play I love my old home way back in the mountains But ev'rything's changed since she went away. CHORUS Mother was good and now she's in heaven She was the best pal a boy ever had I still love my home way back in the mountains But without you mother, a heart aches so sad. CHORUS (Contributed by Monique - July 2004)
