The Last Look At Mother

Song Author Hank Locklin Performer: Hank Locklin Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]Of all the tragic scenes in life [C]there's one I can't [G]forget
The [C]memory of a little [G]girl still [A7]lingers with me [D7]yet   
The [G]sad remarks I heard her say we're [C]more than I could [G]stand
[C]While she stood sadly [G]pleading [D7]holding her daddy's [G]hand

Let me have another [C]look at [G]mother
Daddy please oh let me have just one more [D7]look   
Her [G]little heart was breaking through [C]tears oh how she [G]sighed
[C]For one last look at [G]mother please [D7]daddy please she [G]cried

She didn't seem to understand why [C]mother had to [G]leave
Her [C]blinding tears were [G]falling oh how [A7]my heart did [D7]grieve
Her [G]little friends were standing by their [C]hearts in sad [G]despair#
[C]Each time she called to [G]mommy oh [D7]please don't leave me [G]here

Her daddy slowly picked her up and [C]whispered words to [G]her  
The [C]sorrow he was [G]hiding was more [A7]than he could [D7]bear   
She [G]held him tightly in her arms these [C]words I heard her [G]say  
[C]Oh daddy we will [G]miss her will [D7]she come back some [G]day  

Let me have a another [C]look at [G]mother
Daddy please oh let me have just one more [D7]look   
Her [G]little heart was breaking through [C]tears oh how she [G]cried
[C]For one last look at [G]mother when [D7]they closed her [G]inside


Of all the tragic scenes in life there's one I can't forget
The memory of a little girl still lingers with me yet
The sad remarks I heard her say we're more than I could stand
While she stood sadly pleading holding her daddy's hand

Let me have another look at mother
Daddy please oh let me have just one more look
Her little heart was breaking through tears oh how she sighed
For one last look at mother please daddy please she cried

She didn't seem to understand why mother had to leave
Her blinding tears were falling oh how my heart did grieve
Her little friends were standing by their hearts in sad despair#
Each time she called to mommy oh please don't leave me here

Her daddy slowly picked her up and whispered words to her
The sorrow he was hiding was more than he could bear
She held him tightly in her arms these words I heard her say
Oh daddy we will miss her will she come back some day

Let me have a another look at mother
Daddy please oh let me have just one more look
Her little heart was breaking through tears oh how she cried
For one last look at mother when they closed her inside
