Little Joe Recorded by Hank Snow Written by A.P. Carter, Maybelle Carter, Sara Carter
C F C What will the birds do mother in the spring G7 When they stop to gather crumbs around the door C F Will they fly from the trees half as nice with glee G7 C Asking why Joe wanders out no more
F C What will the kitten do mother all alone G7 Will he stop from his frolic for the day C F Will he lie on his rug by the side of my bed G7 C As he did before I went away
F C What will Thomas that old gardener say G7 When you ask him for flowers for me C F Will he give you a rose he has tended with care G7 C The first fairest bloom of the tree
F C I have seen the tears in his honest old eyes G7 But he said it was the wind that brought them there C F As he gazed on my cheeks growing paler each day G7 C And his hand went trembling through my hair
F C Keep tied mother my poor little dog G7 For I know he'll mourn for me too C F Just keep him when old and useless he grows G7 C Sleeping the whole summer through
F C Show him my coat mother so he'll not forget G7 His master who then will be dead C F Just speak to him kindly and often of Joe G7 C And pat him on his brown shaggy head
F C And you dearest mother may miss me for a while G7 But in heaven I'll no larger grow C F And any kind angel will know at the gate G7 C When you ask for your darling little Joe
