From Mother's Arms to Korea (Charles and Ira Louvin) I just got an unfinished diary; That I once gave my darling son It starts the day when he left us; And ends 'neath the enemy's gun. cho: From mother's arms to Korea; And tomorrow I'll face the front lines But the next line was wrote by his buddies; From a foxhole to a mansion on high. Last night I saw mother Kneeling; By the old hearthstone to pray In my dream, I thought I was with her; And that's all my darling could say. Please tell his sweetheart who's waiting; For his ship to anchor at shore To change her plans and forget him; Her lips he'll kiss no more. copyright The Louvin Brothers Recorded by The Louvin Brothers GG oct97
