There's Always A Mother Waiting At Home
Recorded by Johnny Cash
written by
J. Thornton

C
So you're going to leave the old home Jim
F C
Today you're going away
G7 C
So you're going among the city folk to dwell
F C
So spoke a kind old mother to her boy one summer's day
G7 C
If you're mind's made up that way I wish you well

F C
The old home will be lonesome

We'll miss you when you go
G7
The birds won't sing so sweet when you're not nigh
C F C
But if you get in trouble Jim just write and let us know
G7 C
She spoke these words and then she said goodbye

F C
If sickness over takes you

And old companions shake you
G7
As through this world you wander all alone
C
When friends you haven't any
F
In your pocket not a penny
C G7 C
There's a mother always waiting you at home

F C
Ten years later to this village came a stranger no one knew
G7 C
His steps were haunt and ragged clothes he wore

The little children laughed at him
F C
As down the lane he trod
G7 C
At last he stopped before a cottage door

F C
He gently knocked no sound he heard

He thought can she be dead
G7
But then he heard a voice well known to him
C
Twas his mother's voice but her hair had silvered
F C
By the touch of time
G7 C
And she said thank God they've sent me home my Jim

Repeat #3
