Flatt & Scruggs

The Foggy Mountain Boys was an influential American bluegrass band founded by guitarist Lester Flatt and banjo player Earl Scruggs.

She labored so hard in this world below
She didn't have things that most mothers know
Raising her children on a widow's small pay
Washing and ironing since dad passed away

I wanna go to heaven when this life is over
I wanna be with Jesus on eternity shore
But if I've a crown coming when rewards go around
Please blessed Jesus give mother my crown

I didn't realize it when I was a lad
Just how great a burden my mother had
Adoption was offered but mama said no
She raised us and taught us the right way to go

I wanna go to heaven when this life is over
I wanna be with Jesus on eternity shore
But if I've a crown coming when rewards go around
Please blessed Jesus give mother my crown
