Marty: Many things have been said, I've heard and I've read
About Maybelle, Mother Maybelle
A sweet Virginia kind of girl, who's known all around this world
They all know Maybelle, Mother Maybelle
She took pride as a mother and a wife
And she lives on the sunny side of life

Johnny: I could sit and listen by the hour
Marty & Johnny: When Maybelle plays the Wildwood Flower
Johnny: As the Carter's began to sing, she would make her guitar ring
The sound of Maybelle
Marty & Johnny: Mother Maybelle
Johnny: Along with Sara and A. P., they sang sweet harmony
To the sounds of Maybelle
Marty & Johnny: Mother Maybelle

Johnny: She took pride as a mother and a wife
Now she
Marty & Johnny: Lives on the sunnyside of life
It will help us every day, it will brighten up our way
If we keep on the sunnyside of life

Johnny: Many years have come and gone, but her music lingers on
The sounds of Maybelle
Marty & Johnny: Mother Maybelle
Johnny: The sounds of Maybelle
Marty & Johnny: Mother Maybelle
