Chours [c] mother is gone, to her [g] home Way up in [d7] heaven a-[g] bove [d7] And my [g] hearts so sad, for the [c] words I read there The [g] words said [d7] mother is [g] gone.
As I stood alone, with memries 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 oer and oer So trustin in gods love, Ill meet her above Over there on that other shore.
