Just a Few More Days As Done by The Carter Family G Not so long ago one morning C G Mother called me to her bed Then she threw her arms around me D7 Listen to the words she said: G Darling I am going to leave you C G But you'll not be left alone Jesus will protect and shield you D7 G After he has carried me home. (Chorus) Just a few more days of sorrow Just a few more days of pain Just a few more days of cloud'ness Just a few more days of rain Then I'm going to live with Jesus He has got a home prepared Then I'll join the holy angels Mother will be waiting there. Sometimes I'm sorely tempted Sometimes I am sorely tired But to overcome I'm trying Taking Jesus as my guide Oh, sometimes the past seems rugged But it only makes me praise And I know if I keep trying I'll see my mother some sweet day. Here's another "Mother Song" as done on "Gospel Songs by The Carter Family in Texas, Volume 3" and also done by Suzanne Thomas of Dry Branch Fire Squad: BS apr00
