Walter Brennan - Mama Sang A Song Lyrics

  • (Written by Bill Anderson)
  • (God put a song in the heart of an Angel,)
  • (And softly she sang it to me.)
  • I get to thinking lots of times
  • About back when I was a lad,
  • Of the old home-place where I growed up;
  • Of the days both good and bad.
  • My overalls was hand-me-downs,
  • Y shoes was full of holes,
  • And I used to walk four miles to school every day,
  • Through the rain and the sleet and the cold.
  • I've seen the nights when my daddy would cry
  • For the things that his family would need,
  • But all he ever got was a bad-lands farm
  • And seven hungry mouths to feed.
  • And yet, and yet out home-fire never flickered once,
  • 'Cause when all these things went wrong,
  • Mama took the hymn-book down,
  • And mama sang a song.
  • (What a friend we have in Jesus.)
  • I been rocked to sleep many a night
  • To the tune of "What A Friend"
  • To the tune of "What A Friend"; come morning,
  • "Rock of Ages" would waken me gentle once again.
  • Then dad, he'd reach up and take the bible down
  • And read it, read it loud and long,
  • I always thought that maybe our our home was blessed
  • When daddy would say, "Mamma, sing a song."
  • Sister left home first, I guess,
  • Then Bob and then Tommy and then Dan,
  • Then dad's hair was turnin' white,
  • 'n I had to be mama's little man.
  • But it seemed that as daddy's back growed weak,
  • Mother's faith just growed strong,
  • And them were the greatest days of all,
  • When mama samg a song.
  • (Rock of ages, cleft for me.)
  • (Let me hide myself in thee.)...
  • Ooh, ooh, ooh. (Through Recitation)
  • I guess the house is still standing;
  • I don't get back much no more,
  • No voice is left to fill them halls,
  • 'n no steps to grace the floor.
  • You see, my mama sings in heaven now,
  • Around God's golden throne,
  • But I'll always believe this world
  • Is a better place because, one time,
  • My mama sang a song.
