A LOCK OF HAIR(Mother's Parting Gift)
Copyright, 1893, by liroder & Schlam.
Words and Music by Harry Gilbert Castle. Arranged by Geo. W. Hetzel.

The morn was fair and friends did gather, to bid to me a long good-bye;
I kissed my poor old aged mother, and a starting tear came in her eye;
She gave to me a lock of hair, and with that lock I ne'er shall part;
I will always and forever guard it, and always wear it near my heart.

When I'm far away in distant lands, for o'er the dark and deep blue sea;
This lock of hair I'll always treasure, my mother's parting gift to me.

My home was once a happy place, till poverty, alas! came there;
To see my poor old mother in sorrow, that dreadful thought I could not bear;
For her I left my native village, perhaps to return there no more;
There is nothing like a good, kind mother, you'll miss her when she's faraway.
