Motherwent a walkin' Lyrics
[00:00.84]Mother Went a Walkin - Jim Reeves
[00:02.54]Shall we gather at the river that
[00:08.32]Flows by the throne of God
[00:15.86]The church doors opened one Sunday
[00:18.22]In a little country town
[00:20.92]The people all were silent
[00:22.88]In the rain that misted down
[00:26.16]And an old gray-haired granddad
[00:28.30]His shoulders stooped with pain
[00:31.31]Was holdin fast a little boy
[00:33.36]Who kept cryin  in the rain
[00:36.49]And in the dim candlelight
[00:38.17]Within a casket lay so still
[00:42.09]That soon would lie beneath the earth up
[00:45.27]At the top of the hill
[00:47.57]The little boy kept askin in a low
[00:50.04]And plaintive tone
[00:53.00]Whats wrong with mommy grandpa
[00:56.10]Wont she be comin home
[00:58.66]Its awful lonesome grandpa
[01:00.55]Since daddy went away
[01:02.65]And mommys all the reason
[01:04.41]Why Im happy every day
[01:07.38]Wouldnt she feel better grandpa
[01:08.92]If I layed down by her side
[01:13.50]The old man turned and faced him
[01:15.81]With these words replied
[01:20.43]Mother went a walkin son
[01:24.27]Away up in the sky
[01:26.38]Along the brook that winds among
[01:28.54]The stars up there on high
[01:31.54]And down the valley where the sun
[01:33.38]Goes home at night to sleep
[01:36.81]Mother went a walkin son
[01:39.41]She wouldnt want us to weep
[01:43.08]The boy didnt seem to understand just
[01:45.52]Where his mom had gone
[01:48.18]He couldnt realize that now
[01:51.13]She wouldnt be comin home
[01:53.93]He saw the rain on grandpas face
[01:57.44]He didnt know he cried
[01:59.66]And of course he couldnt hear the words
[02:01.74]That grandpa said inside
[02:07.01]Mother went a walkin son
[02:11.95]Up yonder in the sky
[02:14.21]And all that we can do down here son
[02:16.57]Is bow our heads and cry
[02:21.51]Shes gone to meet your daddy son
[02:23.15]And take him by the hand
[02:27.77]Yes  mother went a walkin son in
[02:32.65]Gods great meadowland
