Jack mostly folk 'Mother Songs' of the tear-jerker variety (216* d) Lyr Add: EVERY BUSH AND TREE (Otis Pierce)^^ 27 Jul 98


Great Mother Tear jerky stuff, my alltime favorite is an Otis Pierce song covered by Jim Ringer called "Every Bush and Tree"

EVERY BUSH AND TREE
(Otis Pierce)

I hear the soft wings a blowin
in every bush and tree
I know my mothers a' waiting
in her heavenly home for me.

I was born in old Missouri
my family was poor
My mother's name was Laura
and my daddy's name was Joe

Momma , she called me to her bedside
saying Son I've got to go
We'll go and meet again up yonder
Where the parting will be no more (repeat 1st)

Now Daddy went back home to North Fork
And he left us here all alone
The sheriff came by one evening
And he took us to an orphan's home

So come all you orphan children
Who stays down here below
We'll go and meet again up yonder
Where the parting will be no more(repeat 1st)

If you need the music or example on tape, write me...
Jack the mostly folk guy.
