"A Picture Of Your Mother" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
My little girl and I lost Mama just three years ago
And now that she is older there are things she wants to know
She said, "Please Daddy tell me 'bout my mother 'cause I miss her."
I said, "Get pen and paper and I'll help your draw her picture."
I said, "First draw a heart so big there's room for little else
Then write a million for the things that she denied herself
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother
"If you want to make the picture even more complete
You could draw a little cottage, draw it nice and neat
Draw a bright and shining sun up in the sky above
But then again I guess its pretty hard to draw my love
"So draw a heart so big that there is room for little else
Write a million for the things that she denied herself
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother."
