Two Little Orphans

101 Strings Orchestra, Dolly PartonBuy this song

Two little children, a boy and a girl
Sat by an old church door
The little girl's feet 
Were as brown as the curl
That fell on the dress that she wore
The little boy's clothes were all tattered and torn
They shone beneath his blue eyes

"Why don't you go home 
To your mommy," I said
And this was the maiden's reply
"Mommy's in heaven 
Angels took her away
Left Tim and I all alone
We've no one to love us
And daddy is dead
And our darling mother is gone"

Mommy got sick 
Angels took her away 
To dwell in those mansions so bright
She said she would come 
For her children some day
And I guess she's coming tonight
The sexton came early 
To ring the church bell
And found them 
Beneath the snow white
The angels made room for the orphans to dwell
Up in heaven with their mommy that night
