About

I never shall forget the day
I heard my dear old mother say
"I'm leaving now the old home dear,
remember Jack your mother's prayer".
She left me as the golden sun
behind the hill top it did hide,
And when I found that she had gone
I laid my guitar down and cried.

And now she's gone this world is drear,
I long to have dear mother here,
She's gone to join the angels there,
I'll not forget my mother's prayer.

The birds were still, no sound was made,
The organ sad but sweetly played,
As by her side we gathered there,
Our heads bowed down in silent prayer.
We laid here where the fragrant rose
was blooming o'er her lonely grave,
And now in answer to her prayer
I'll meet dear mother some sweet day.

Sad sad sad in blue
For sad sad sad you
The moon is all bluish tonight
The night is all dark out side
Nowhere to run
Sad sad sad in blue

Into the night hold me tight
Love me babe I need some light
What's wrong and what's right
When shadows dwell and abide

Sad sad sad in blue
For sad sad sad you
The moon is all bluish tonight
Is there some star shoot in sight
To wish upon
For sad sad sad you

Into the night take a flight
Feelings, touch, everything out sight
Love me with feelings ok
Come come babe now closer stay

Sad sad sad in blue
For sad sad sad you
The moon is all bluish tonight
Is there some star shoot in sight
To wish upon
For sad sad sad you
