Sunday Song Lyric

There are lots of songs about Mom — readers contributed a bunch here.  For today’s lyric, I thought about “There’s Always a Mother Waiting at Home.” Here’s the chorus:

If sickness overtakes you
Or old companions shake you
As through this world you wander all alone
When friends you haven’t any
In your pocket not a penny
There’s a mother always awaiting you at home

The version I’m familiar with is by Johnny Cash from Personal File, but it’s a much older song by James Thornton dating from the turn of the century.

Happy Mother’s Day!
