Words and Music by Gus Williams.

Soon you may wander from home far away.
Young and light-hearted the world o'er to stray;
Thoughts of the old folks may drift from your mind
Day after day as you leave them behind;
But there is one you must hold ever dear,
One who will cling to you year after year;
Keep her in mem'ry in gladness or woe.
Don't forget mother, wherever you go.

Don't forget mother; she'll not forget you;
Cheer her with kindness; 'tis easy to do;
Keep her in mem'ry in gladness or woe;
Don't forget mother, wherever you go.

Dear to the heart is a mother's last word.
Sleeping or waking, in mem'ry 'tis heard:
When to her loved one she murmurs good-bye,
. Who does not echo her last plaintive sighs
See how she stands at the old cottage-door,
Watching and waiting to see you once more;
While you are from her no rest will she know,
Don't forget mother, wherever you go.-Chorus.

Think of her ever, no thought is so blest,
No balm so sweet to the suffering breast;
Through the land roaming or far o'er the sea.
First in the vision her dear face we see;
Think of her patience and think of her pain,
Longing to gaze on her own once again;
Fortune may smile on you, but, in its glow,
Don't forget mother, wherever you go.
