"Sweet Wisdom" as written by and Rita Macneil....
Dresses my mother wore were never of silk
Places where she would go, it wouldn't fit in
But I remember, cold days turned to spring
Just to know she was there when I'd walk in

Living the simple life, you work with your hands
Watching the years go by and never complain
Oh, I remember the beads on your brow
Father you're resting, it's all over now

Oh, looking back, the years have flown
Oh, sweet wisdom, had I known
And if we could see inside each other's hearts
Would it make a difference, would we understand
Find no resistance, just love, joy and peace

Watching how you've grown can I recall
Did I make a difference, did I do it right?
Remember your wisdom, it will serve you well
Life is a short time, oh, you never can tell

Oh, looking back, the years have flown
Oh, sweet wisdom, had I known
And if we could see inside each other's hearts
Would we make a difference, would we understand
Find no resistance, just love, joy and peace
