    when I stand among the angels, will my mo.......ther know me there ?


              C                          G                                                         D

Yes, I know that she will know me in those mansions bright and fair,

mother's love can ne'er forget me and I'm sure        she'll know me there.

    Do you think she has forgotten, will my mo......ther know me there.

    I shall look for her up yonder, will my mo.......ther know me there ?
