Hank Williams – Message To My Mother lyrics

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.
Ntro: [G7] [C] ...[C7] (Notes to last line of first verse)
Chorus
[F] Take this message to my [C] mother
It will fill her heart with [G7] joy
[C] Tell her that I've met my [G7] Saviour
God has saved her wand'ring [C] boy.
[C] The tears and sorrow I have [G7] caused her
How I wish I could re-[C] pay
But tell her I'll be waiting [G7] for her
We'll meet in heaven some glad [C] day. ... [C7]
How she cried when I left her
I know it filled her heart with pain
She said, "; Son, please don't leave me
For we may never meet again. ";
Chorus
Years have passed since that parting
But I know she waits and prays
Soon I'll cross that dark river
Please let her know that I was saved.
Chorus
