Lyr Req: Aged Mother [Ten Thousand Miles Away]

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

Hello I am getting stuck on this song which is called ten thousand miles away. I know the chorus pretty well

Don't ask me why I'm weeping
Don't ask me why I pray
For I........... (I dont understand the rest)


I don't know who is singing this song and would be delighted if somebody could tell me who is singing this song and help me with the lyrics. If you could have a listen to it that would be great.

I HAVE AN AGED MOTHER
As recorded by the Carter Family, 1930. (Montgomery Ward M-7446)

Last night while I lay sleeping,
Last night while in a dream,
I saw my dear old mother
Down by a misting stream.
Don't ask me why I'm weeping.
Don't ask me why I pray,
For I've an aged mother
Ten thousand miles away.

A letter here from sister dear:
"Come home; we're all alone.
Dear mother's slowly fading.
She can't be living long."
Don't ask me why I'm weeping.
Don't ask me why I pray.
I've a dear old mother dying
Ten thousand miles away.

[Yodel]
Out in the cold world,
Long ways from home.

I'm drawing near the old home.
Dear sister's at the gate.
She's leading me through the doorway.
"Oh, brother, you've come too late."
"Oh, lead me to the casket.
Throw back the linen so fine,
That I may kiss her pale white lips,
For I know they'll never kiss mine.

I see the pale moon shining
On mother's whitened stone.
The rosebuds round them twining
Are just like me, alone.

[Yodel]
Out in the cold world,
Left all alone.

In youth I craved adventure, to Australia I did stray
Leaving friends and my dear mother for adventure far away
She begged me not to leave her or to return some day
To the bonny banks of Claudy, ten thousand miles away

Chorus:
Oh blame me not for weeping, oh blame me not I say
For I long to see my mother, ten thousand miles away
The rest of his verson of Claudy Banks from Nova Scotia is in Lyr Add: CLAUDY BANKS (trad, Nova Scotia).
