Mother's Not Dead Recorded by Bill Monroe written by Charlie Monroe G
D7 Mothers not dead she's only a sleeping
G Just patiently waiting for Jesus to come
D7 The birds will be singing while Mother is sleeping
G They will sing o'er as the grave sinks away
D7 Well I left my old home way back in the mountains
G For mother and father had both passed away
D7 We followed our mother up to the graveyard
G For mother was called to heaven that day
D7 Oh how we miss her around the old home place
G Everything seems so lonesome since she went away
D7 Mother is sleeping way back the mountains
G Yes mother is sleeping way back in the hills
