The picture on the wall

There's an old and faded picture on he wall
It's been hanging there for many years
Tis a picture of my Mother and I know there is no other
That can take the place of Mother on the wall

    On the wall, on the wall
    How I love that dear old picture on the wall
    Time is swifty passing by and I'll bow my head and cry
    Cause I know I'll meet my Mother after all

How the children all have scattered off and gone
And I have a little family of my own
And I love them well, more than any tongue can tell
But I love that dear old picture on the wall

 * Refrain

Yes I loved that dear old Mother's years ago
There has been no one to take her place I know
As my banjo plays its chord, I am praying to the Lord
To bless that dear old picture on the wall

 * Refrain
