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."
