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
