Verse one:
I never will forget... One of my saddest times...
That really did hurt me... And I almost lost my mind.
My heart went with her... I felt empty inside...
I lost A big part of me... The day my momma died.

Verse two:
My mother was A person... That I could count on...
And I really do miss her... Now that she is gone.
She was always there for me... With arms opened wide...
And the angels welcomed her... The day my momma died.

Chorus:
Momma... I miss you... But I know that you're okay...
St. Peter called your name... It was on the roll that day.
Soon I'll come to join you... But first I must wait...
Then we will live forever... Inside the pearly gates.

Verse three:
She will be glad to see me... When my time comes to die...
We will never part again... There is no such thing as time.
I don't think about yard sales... Or things I used to buy...
My thoughts have been in heaven... Since the day my momma died.

Verse four:
The streets are pure gold... With mansions built so high...
And there will be no tears... With no reasons there to cry.
There is A river flowing... Beside the tree of life...
And I know she is enjoying... Since the day my momma died.

Chorus:
Momma... I miss you... But I know that you're okay...
St. Peter called your name... It was on the roll that day.
Soon I'll come to join you... But first I must wait...
Then we will live forever... Inside the pearly gates.
Yes... We will live forever... Inside the pearly gates.
