Are All The Children In Lyrics - Johnny Cash

Review The Song (1)

When I'm alone I often think of an old house on the hill
Of a big yard hedged in roses where we ran and played at will
And when the night time brought us home hushing our merry din
Mother would look around and ask are all the children in
Well it's been many a year now and the old house on the hill
No longer has my mother's care and the yard is still so still
But if I listen I can hear it all no matter how long it's been
I seem to hear my mother ask are all the children in
And I wonder when the curtain falls on that last earthly day
When we say goodbye to all of this to our pain and work and play
When we step across the river where mother so long has been
Will we hear ask her a final time are all the children in (I come)

Are All the Children In? | Reviewer: Becky Dreger | 11/13/2005

i just came across this poem after searching for it for a long time. I never knew it had been recorded as a song. The poem has sentimental value to me, because, my father was a minister and would recite this poem at the end of his sermon, usually on Mother's DAy.
i would love to know where I can obtain a copy of the recording.
I really love the poem.
