Submitted by: Gene Graham email@example.com Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr. Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr. MOTHER IS GONE CAPO: 3rd Fret/KEY: B/PLAY: G [G] In a little pine grove [C] by the old home There's [G] someone who's [D7] restin' a-[G] lone [D7] And [G] there on the the tomb these [C] words I read The [G] words were [D7] Mother is [G] gone. [G7] CHOURS [C] Mother is gone to her [G] home Way up in [D7] heaven a-[G] bove [D7] And my [G] heart's so sad for the [C] words I read there The [G] words said [D7] Mother is [G] gone. As I stood alone with mem'ries of home The place I left long, long ago I returned home but I waited too long For the words said Mother is gone. My friends did say before she went away She called my name o'er and o'er So trustin' in God's love, I'll meet her above Over there on that other shore. CHORUSHome
