He Holds The Lantern (While His Mother Chops The Wood)
Recorded by Tex Morton
Written by Alan L. Grey, Arthur Terker, Roy Jordan

G C
I know the best hearted fellow
D7 G
He'd even give his oldest shirt a way
C
The neighbors all know he's a kind hearted fellow
D7 G
And here's what you’ll hear them say

C G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood
D7
He holds the lantern just as any good son should
G C G
He's mighty handy and he's always standing by
C D7 G
When she's through chopping one load he'll get her a new supply

D7
And when she is exhausted he's equal to the test
G
He lays right down beside her and helps his ma to rest
C
While she is axing he is busily relaxing
G D7 G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood

C G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood
D7
He holds the lantern and he surely does it good
G C G
She hacks and hacks away until her back is sprained
C D7 G
While her son holds the lantern so her eyes will not get strained

D7
You'll never find him stopping to take a holiday
G
Cause when it comes to chopping every day is Mother' Day
C
While she's perspiring her dear son is most inspiring
G D7 G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood

C G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood
D7
While she is pantin' he pants too that's understood
G C G
He's tender hearted when she chops he almost cries
C D7 G
He can't stand seeing mother work so he just shuts his eyes

D7
He's big and strong and healthy and he weighs two fifty net
G
But moving those big muscles is what he ain't done yet
C
But he's sure respected her and to show he's not neglectin' her
G D7 G
He holds the lantern while his mother chops the wood
