The estate is being settled, there was only one thing left
My mama's family bible was laying on the chest
All the others they didn't want it and that was plain to see
So I took mama's bible home with me.

One sister got the dishes and one the silver ware
And my brother took the radio and her old rocking chair
One by one all the pieces of her home was packed and hauled
But they left me the best part of it all.

Mama's family bible, oh, what a book
It inspired me every time I looked
At all the scriptures that she marked and loved
Mama's family bible is the treasure I'm proud of.

(Spoken)
Now all the dishes are broken, yes, and someone sold the silver ware
And the old radio was sittin' in some junkstore in the square
One by one all the pieces of moma's life had all disappeared
But mama's family bible is still here.

(Sang)
Mama's family bible, oh, what a book
It inspired me every time I looked
At all the scriptures that she marked and loved
Mama's family bible is the treasure that I'm proud of.

Mama's family bible, oh, what a book...
