Hank Williams I Dreamed About Mama Last Night Lyrics

Last updated: 10/24/2007 12:00:00 PM

I've just been to heaven with someone so true I dreamed about mama lastnight
She read me the Bible like she used to do I dreamed about mama last night
She never close her eyes to sleep till we were all in bed
and on party nights till we came home she often sat and readWe little thought about it then for we were young and gay
Just how much mama worried when we children were away
we only knew she never slept and when we were out at nightThat she waited just to know that we'd all come home alright
Why sometimes when we'd stay away till one or two or three
It seemed to us that mama heard the turnin' of the key
for always when we'd step inside she'd call and we'd replyBut we were all too young back then to understand the reason why
Until the last one had returned she'd always keep a light
For mama couldn't sleep until she kissed us all goodnight
she had to know we were safe before she went to rest for she seemed to fear the world might harm the ones she loved bestand once she said when you have grown into woman and to menPerhaps I'll sleep the whole night through I may be different then
And so it seemed that night and day we knew a mother's care
That always when we got back home we'd find her waitin' there
then came the night that we were called to gather roun her bedThe children're all with you now the kindly doctor said
and in her eyes there gleamed again that old time tender lightthat told she'd been waitin just to know we were alrightShe smiled that old familiar smile and prayed to God to keep
Her children safe from harm throughout the years tand then she went to sleep
My dream is a treasure that I'll always keep I dreamed about mama last night
