Ten Thousand Miles Away
(Randolph #697A)

Last night as I lay sleeping,
I had a happy dream,
That I saw my mother kneeling
And praying to God for me.

They tell me she is sleeping
In a lonely new-made grave
My poor old aged mother
Whose hair is turning gray.

Sung by Mrs. J.F. Trail, Farmington, Arkansas, Oct 5, 1941
