My Mother’s Rosary

It takes an old-time love song
To keep this old world young
Each heart must have a love song
Tho’ some are never sung
Some people worship money
The song of clinking gold
But mother’s song at twilight
Brings you right back to the fold

There’s an old-time melody, I heard long ago
Mother called it the Rosary
She sang it soft and low
Without any rhyme, without any prose
I even forget how the melody goes
But then baby fingers and ten baby toes
She’d watch them by the setting sun
And when her daily work was done
She’d count them each and every one
That was “My Mother’s Rosary”

One day we may be happy
Next day we may regret
Some things that we remember
We wish we could forget
Sometimes you may be lonely
In darkness you may roam
But mother’s song at twilight
Keeps telling you to go home.
