A LOCK OF MOTHERS HAIR
Sung with great success by Ella Esmond.

I've a letter that was written long ago,
'Tis a letter that I've kept for many years;
And, oh! how oft I've read those fading lines,
And over them there's traces of my tears.
She sent to me her blessing in this missive,
To see me was her constant holy prayer;
The little lock of gray in this old letter
Is a lock of my angel mother's hair.

Chorus.
I've a letter that was written long ago,
'Tis a letter that I keep with tender care;
The little lock of gray in this old letter
Is a lock of my angel mother's hair.

I've a letter that was written long ago,
'Tis a missive that was sent me 'cross the sea;
When 'mong strangers I was wand'ring far away,
And longing home again to ever be.
But underneath the sod my mother's sleeping,
She's free from earthly trials and its care.
But ever next her heart I'll keep her letter.
And the lock of my angel mother's hair.-Chorus.
