Listen to the tune
I want to go to heaven when this life is o'er,
I want to be with Jesus on eternity's shore,
But if I've a crown coming when rewards go around,
Please Blessed Jesus give mother my crown.
2. I didn't realize it when I was a lad,
Just how great a burden our mother had,
Adoption was offered, but Mama said no,
She raised us and taught us the right way to go.
(As recorded by the Bailes Bros.)
