Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone
I can still remember mama washin' on the washboard
On the backporch while us kids played in the yard
Mama always seemed to be so happy and content
She never seemed to mind that times were hard
She went about her work singing some old farvorite songs of hers
And often singing favorite songs for us
She was satisfied just being mama to us children
And the only woman daddy ever loved
Take me back to mama's bossom back to daddy's loving arms
Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone

I can still remember us a runnin' to meet daddy
In the evening when his workin' day was done
When daddy saw us comin' he would bend his tired old back
Holdin' out his arms and into them we'd run
He'd hold us for a minute we'd all walk home together
While mama waited for him at the door
And he was satisfied just being daddy to us children
And the man my mama lived the whole life for
Take me back to mama's bossom...
Take me back all precious mem'ries to the days forever gone
