Mother's Day ditty - quite a bit of borrowing done from Elizabeth Cotten's 'When I'm Gone.'
When She's Gone A Variation of Elizabeth Cotten's When I'm Gone

If your mother's still with you, Tell her what she means to you.
Cause' you know you'll miss her when she's gone.

You'll miss her by her walk. You'll miss her by her talk
You know you'll miss her when she's gone.

When she's gone. When she's gone to her reward.
You know you'll miss her when she's gone.

You will look and she won't be there. You will wish she was still near.
You know you'll miss her when she's gone.

Instrumental

If your mother's still with you, Tell her what she means to you.
Cause' you know you'll miss her when she's gone.

Thanks, Danny.  Around here, we get hats like that at the farm stores.

Yup, Derek. I can understand that.  Thank you, sir.

Good job John. My mom has been gone for 24 years and think of her every day.

Thanks, Alan.  Eve after all this time, I am sad for your loss.

Donkey, you are making my eyes leak.  Thanks!

This is such a treat to hear, Uncle John.

Listening to your song took me out of my mess of daily stresses to be present in the moment and thank God for my mother. I'm grateful my mother is still with us so I can see her this Sunday and, as you sang, tell her what she means to me. 

Thank you, Uncle John.
