I was a stranger at this place
And I'm lookin' for my mother's grave
I'm in a stranger place
And I'm lookin' for my mother's grave
Well, it seems like to me
Hoo-hoo-well, some almost go to wail

I was at mother's grave
When they put my mother 'way
I was at mother's grave
When they put my mother 'way
And I can't find no one
Hoo-hoo-well, to take her place

I thought aft' my mother was put away
I thought my wife would take her place
After Mama was put away
I thought my wife would take her place
I show you different in mother an wife
Hoo-hoo-well, my wife done throwed me away

I wished I could find someone
To take my mother's place
I wished I could find someone
To take my mother's place
If I can't find no one
Hoo-hoo, well you will find me at her grave

I'm standin' on my mother's grave
And I wished I could seen her face
I'm standin' on my mother's grave
And I wished I could seen her face
I be glad when that day comes
Hoo-hoo, well, when it be due die me away.

(guitar & washboard)
