Words by George Birdseye. Music by Jno. P. Dougherty.

Mamma, you are tired I know, watching by me night And day,
Soon you'll rest, for I must go-I must die, I heard them say;
That means going to the skies, Mamma, does that make you weep?
Dimmer grow my weary eyes, kiss me as I fall asleep!

Oh, your tears fall on my face, mamma, mamma, do not weep!
Heaven is such a pretty place, kiss me as I fall asleep!

Mamma, I remember now, brother Charlie lay just so.
And you kissed him, lips and brow, when he said that he must go;
Soon dear mamma, we shall meet, be again as brothers are.
Playing thro' the happy street of that sunny land afar.- Chorus.

You will miss your little boy, and I'd rather stay with you.
Think, dear mamma, of the joy when we meet where all is day;
Tou have told me of the land where the skies are ever fair,
I am going, take my hand, we shall be together there.- Chorus.
