GOODBYE TO MY MAMA - Meryl Streep, Lilly Tomlin (A Prairie Home Companion, 2006)

Good-bye to my mama
My uncles and aunts
One after another
They went to lie down
In the green pastures
Beside the still waters
And made no sound

Their arms that held me
For so many years
Their beautiful voices
No longer I hear
They're in Jesus' arms
And He's talkin' to them
In the rapturous New Jerusalem
And I know they're at peace
In a land of delight
But I miss my mama tonight

Good bye Eleanor, and Aunt Frannie and Joe
Good bye Uncle Jim, and Elsie and Don
Good bye to my mama
Who went to lie down
And now is gone

Whose hands are these
All rough and hard?
Nails all torn from toil and care
Who cleaned the house
And kept the yard
Touched my cheek
And stroked my hair

Thank you, Mama
The Lord give you peace
Bless your voice
And the songs you've sung
Blessed your arms
And your hands and your knees
How you loved us
When we were young

The Lord's my shepherd
I'll not want
I have my mama
My uncles and aunts
Waters so still
And pastures so green
Goodness and mercy
Following me
Goodness and mercy
Following me
