I Saw The Light - A Message To My Mother lyrics

Recorded by hank williams, sr.
Words and music by hank williams, sr.

Ntro: [g7] [c] ...[c7] (notes to last line of first verse)

[f] take this message to my [c] mother
It will fill her heart with [g7] joy
[c] tell her that i've met my [g7] saviour
God has saved her wand'ring [c] boy.

[c] the tears and sorrow i have [g7] caused her
How i wish i could re-[c] pay
But tell her i'll be waiting [g7] for her
We'll meet in heaven some glad [c] day. ... [c7]

How she cried when i left her
I know it filled her heart with pain
She said, "son, please don't leave me
For we may never meet again."


Years have passed since that parting
But i know she waits and prays
Soon i'll cross that dark river
Please let her know that i was saved.
