Mothers Not Dead

Capo on 1st fret
	  		MOTHER'S NOT DEAD (SHE'S ONLY A-SLEEPING) 
Recorded by: Charlie Monroe & His Kentucky Pardners 
Writer: Charlie Monroe 
 
st FRET/KEY: G#/PLAY: G 
G I Left my old home way back in the D7 mountains 
Mother was called to heaven that G day 
They carried my mother up to the D7 graveyard 
Ev'rything's lonesome since she went a-{G} way. 
 
CHORUS 
G Mother's Not Dead, she's only a-{D7} sleeping 
Just patiently waiting for Jesus to G come 
The birds will be singing while mother lies D7 sleeping 
They will sing o'er her as the grave fades a-{G} way. 
 
Nothing seems right around the old home place 
Even the place where we used to play 
I love my old home way back in the mountains 
But ev'rything's changed since she went away. 
 
CHORUS 
 
Mother was good and now she's in heaven 
She was the best pal a boy ever had 
I still love my home way back in the mountains 
But without you mother, a heart aches so sad. 
 
CHORUS
