How I Miss My Darling Mother

In my memory there’s a little mountain homestead
And the flowers are still growing on the lawn
Now each time I go back home the tears start falling
How I miss my darling since she’s gone

She’s gone to join a happy band of angels
To sing for endless ages at God’s throne
The best friend I ever had is now with Jesus
How I miss my darling Mother since she’s gone

There’ll never be another friend like Mother
No one can do the things for me she done
Nor can fill the vacant place she left here
How I miss my darling mother since she’s gone
