JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
As Done by The Carter Family


G
Not so long ago one morning
C G
Mother called me to her bed

Then she threw her arms around me
D7
Listen to the words she said:
G
Darling I am going to leave you
C G
But you'll not be left alone

Jesus will protect and shield you
D7 G
After he has carried me home.


(Chorus)
Just a few more days of sorrow
Just a few more days of pain
Just a few more days of cloud'ness
Just a few more days of rain
Then I'm going to live with Jesus
He has got a home prepared
Then I'll join the holy angels
Mother will be waiting there.

Sometimes I'm sorely tempted
Sometimes I am sorely tired
But to overcome I'm trying
Taking Jesus as my guide
Oh, sometimes the past seems rugged
But it only makes me praise
And I know if I keep trying
I'll see my mother some sweet day.

Here's another "Mother Song" as done on "Gospel Songs by The
Carter Family in Texas, Volume 3" and also done by Suzanne
Thomas of Dry Branch Fire Squad:
