Picture On The Wall


There's an old and faded picture on the wall

That has been a hanging there for many years

It's a picture my mother

For I know there is no other

That can take the place of mother on the wall


On the wall (on the wall) on the wall (on the wall)

How I love that dear old picture on the wall

Time is swiftly passing by

And I bow my head and cry

Cause I know I'll see my mother after all

Yes the children all have gathered all have gone

And I have a little family of my own

And I know I love them well

More than any tongue can tell

But I'll hold that dear old picture on the wall


Since I lost that dear old mother years ago

There is none to which with troubles I can go

As my guitar makes its chords

I am praying to the Lord

Let me hold that dear old picture on the wall
