Dement Iris - Mama's Opry Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Her daddy played the fiddle and used to do the calling when they had hoe-downs
  • She says the neighbors would come and they'd move all my grandma's furniture 'round
  • And there'd be twenty or more there on the old wooden floor dancin' to a country sound
  • The Carters and Jimmy Rodgers played her favorite songs
  • And on Saturday nights there was a radio show and she would sing along
  • And I'll never forget her face when she revealed to me
  • That she'd dreamed about singing at The Grand Ol' Opry
  • Her eyes, oh, how they sparkled when she sang those songs
  • While she was hanging the clothes on the line, I was a kid just a-hummin' along
  • Well, I'd be playing in the grass, to her, what might've seemed, obliviously
  • But there ain't no doubt about it, she sure made her mark on me
  • And she played old gospel records on the phonograph
  • She turned them up loud and we'd sing along, but those days have passed
  • Just now, that I am older, it occurs to me
  • That I was singing in the grandest opry
  • And we sang sweet rose of Sharon, abide with me
  • 'Til I ride the gospel ship to heaven's jubilee
  • And in that great triumphant morning my soul will be free
  • And my burdens will be lifted when my savior's face I see
  • So I don't want to get adjusted to this world below
  • But I know he'll pilot me 'til it comes time to go
  • Oh, nothing on this earth is half as dear to me
  • As the sound of my mama's opry
  • And we sang sweet rose of Sharon, abide with me
  • 'Til I ride the gospel ship to heaven's jubilee
  • And in that great triumphant morning my soul will be free
  • And my burdens will be lifted when my savior's face I see
  • So I don't want to get adjusted to this world below
  • But I know he'll pilot me 'til it comes time to go
  • Oh, nothing on this earth is half as dear to me
  • As the sound of my mama's opry
