On the day mama died,she called daddy to her side.
And said,"I'll be goin soon
,I know its gonna hurt you both. 
But, promise me before I go, you'll do what I 
Ask of you
In a big red Folgers can, 
Hid behind the pots and pans you'll find some money 
That I've saved
And in the back of my dresser drawer 
I put away a little more for a rainy day
Go to town and buy that new guitar cause he's been workin awful hard to get his 
To write his songs
What a memory,oh what a memory even in her final moments mom thought of me
What a memory
She was only 35 I was 15 askin why? 
The lord took her away he must known we 
Needed her
She was an angel here on earth I still miss her everyday.
With all her friends 
And half the town
And her family gathered round I bet she never felt so loved when everybodys 
Heads were bowed I did 
Best to make her proud as I stood up and I sang rock of ages cleft for me as I 
Played it on that new six string
I couldn't help but cry as we said goodbye
[Repeat chorus]
Even in her final moments mama thought of me
What a memory, What a memory
