Goodbye, Mother, I'm sorry, sorry to my heart
So long, Mother, I'm sorry that we have to part
But you can look for me, won't you look for me?
I'll be home soon, Lord have mercy, Jesus

So long, Mother, I got tears, tears, tears are all in my eyes
Farewell, Mother, I run down and wave, wave my last goodbye
But you can look for me somewhere in glory
'Coz I'll be home soon, Lord have mercy, Jesus

I want you to just sleep on Mother
Please Ma, I want you to take your rest
Yes, I love you, Mother, but I believe God loves you best, oh Lord
But you can look for me somewhere in glory
'Coz I'll be home soon, Lord have mercy, Jesus

Just the other day, they tell me, Mother
They laid you, laid you in the new barren ground
Lord have mercy, I wasn't there when they laid your body down
Lord help your boy, but one thing I want you to do for me, Mother
I want you to look for me somewhere in glory, I'll be home soon
