If I - were hang'd on the high -est hill,
Mother, o' Mine,
I know whose love - woulsd fol-low me still, -
Moth-er o'Mine. -

If I wer drown'd in the deep-est sea, -
Moth-er o' Mine,
I know whose tears would come down to me, -
Moth-er o' Mine, Moth-er o' Mine.

If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose pray'rs - would make me whole
I know whose pray'rs - would me me whole
Moth -er o' Mine,
O, - Mother -er o' Mine.
