Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

[C] Dear Brother, Mama left us this morning
Death's [G7] angels took her a-[C] way
She's gone to meet Daddy up there in heaven
But [G7] we'll meet again some [C] day. [C7]

She [F] left this world with a [C] smile on her face
Whisp'ring the Saviour's [G7] name
[C] Dear Brother, Mama left us this morning
For the [G7] city where is no [C] pain.

As I stood by her bedside, those last few moments
I lived my childhood again
I thought of you Brother and of the old homestead
And my tears they fell like rain.
