When Momma Leaves Her Boy

Lyrics > From These Hills

 When Heaven takes a mother home how sweet must be their joy.
 But how it hurts upon the earth when Momma leaves her boy.
 I know that we will meet again with angels round God’s throne,
 But on this earth I never can go home.

 It was late at night I rose to get the phone,
 Somehow within my heart I knew there’s something wrong
 I said "hello",  then listened as they told to me the news.
 My heart inside was breaking, how could these things be true?

 I remember back six years ago when Mother said to me,
 "Son, you know we’re growing old, don’t move so far away".
 I said, "Mom I’ll call you, and I won’t be gone so long."
 But here I am, holding on this phone.
