There Won't Be Any Patches In Heaven

Song Author Lola Jean Dillon Performer: Norma Jean Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]A memory often [G7]comes to [C]visit
As I [C7]lay in my bed late at [F]night
Of momma alone in the [C]kitchen
Mending clothes by a little oil [G7]light

She [C]sewed till her [G7]fingers were [C]swollen
Till she [C7]couldn't keep sleep from her [F]eyes
Then daddy would go in to [C]wake her
He'd kiss her and [G7]I'd hear him [C]sigh

There won't be any [G7]patches in [C]heaven
You'll look so pretty with a [C7]halo in your [F]hair
And if angels are judged by the [C]deeds they have done
Mom you'll be the best [G7]dressed angel [C]there

I was the [G7]oldest of [C]seven
So I was the [C7]first to leave [F]home
And my dreams were designed for my [C]momma
All the pretties that she'd never [G7]known

But the [C]first pretty [G7]dress that I [C]gave her
She smiled and [C7]then bowed her [F]head
She said honey the kids need these things more than [C]I do
And the tears filled [G7]my eyes as I [C]said

She [C]sewed till her [G7]fingers were [C]swollen
Till she [C7]couldn't keep sleep from her [F]eyes
Then daddy would go in to [C]wake her
He'd kiss her and [G7]I'd hear him [C]sigh

A memory often comes to visit
As I lay in my bed late at night
Of momma alone in the kitchen
Mending clothes by a little oil light

She sewed till her fingers were swollen
Till she couldn't keep sleep from her eyes
Then daddy would go in to wake her
He'd kiss her and I'd hear him sigh

There won't be any patches in heaven
You'll look so pretty with a halo in your hair
And if angels are judged by the deeds they have done
Mom you'll be the best dressed angel there

I was the oldest of seven
So I was the first to leave home
And my dreams were designed for my momma
All the pretties that she'd never known

But the first pretty dress that I gave her
She smiled and then bowed her head
She said honey the kids need these things more than I do
And the tears filled my eyes as I said

She sewed till her fingers were swollen
Till she couldn't keep sleep from her eyes
Then daddy would go in to wake her
He'd kiss her and I'd hear him sigh
