Optional Intro: [F], [C], [A#][F], [C][F], <- Last F leads into verse

[F]     [C]            [F]
I never can forget the day 
              [Am]              [Dm]
When my dear mother did sweetly say 
         [A#]                [F]
"You are leaving, my darling boy, 
           [C]            [C7]*     [F]
You always have been your mother's joy." 

* C7 chord is optional to return to the F.

Now as you leave this world to roam 
You may not be able to get back home 
But remember Jesus who lives on high 
Is watching over you with a mighty eye. 

The world is so full of old sin and woe 
And many sorrows everywhere you go 
But remember Jesus who's everywhere 
If you get in trouble now, He'll meet you there 

If you'll bow down before His face 
And trust in Him for His saving grace 
You have a burden He'll make then light 
And He sure will guide you in the right 

Now when I think of my mother dear 
How often she did felt her cheer 
My wondering mind was going astray 
Was saying son, "Accept the way."
