American Ballads and Folk Songs
moth - er gone to glo - ry On the oth - er shore.
I have a mother gone to glory, I have a mother gone to glory, I have a mother gone to glory On the other shore.
By and by I'll go to meet her, (Repeat as in stanza one.)
Won't that be a happy meetin'? (Repeat as before.)
There we'll shout and sing forever, (Repeat as before.)
There we'll meet our good old neighbors, (Repeat as before.)
There we'll see our blessed Saviour, (Repeat as before.)
And so on ad infinitum, including father, brother, sister, neigh­bors, etc.
♦"Calling the mourners" song widely sung *t "brush arbor" camp meetings by Texas circuit riders £fty years ago.
