Words and music by hank williams, sr.

[c] dear brother, mama left us this morning
Deaths [g7] angels took her a-[c] way
Shes gone to meet daddy up there in heaven
But [g7] well meet again some [c] day. [c7]

She [f] left this world with a [c] smile on her face
Whispring the saviours [g7] name
[c] dear brother, mama left us this morning
For the [g7] city where is no [c] pain.

As I stood by her bedside, those last few moments
I lived my childhood again
I thought of you brother and of the old homestead
And my tears they fell like rain.
