She kept the beds made and stayed there all alone
Washed her clothes and hung them out to dry
Did things the same old way and though her kids were gone
She kept the lights on in their room at night
She kept the dust away until she could no more
and the house was sold and everything inside
All her treasures were not worth much at all
Always happy she had never questioned why

Chorus:

Everything she owned was scattered to the wind
Sold at auction on a sunny autumn day
It took a lifetime to find all the things she wanted
And a day for all those hands to come and carry them away

Her daughter closed the door and looked back one more time
She could feel her mother's eyes
Watching down on her just like years ago
From her window at the kitchen as a child
Those summer nights seemed like they would never end
And she remembered how her Mama prayed for rain
Where did all that time go and leave me here
To face the world without my Mama in the rain?

Chorus
