VERSE 1
When you reach that golden city
Friends an' loved ones you will see
When th saints come out to meet you
O, shake my Mother's hand, for me

CHORUS:
Shake my Mother's hand an' tell 'er
Happy may her spirit be
When th saints come out to meet you
O, shake my Mother's hand, for me

Over there you'll meet th Saviour
Many others you will see
When th saints come out to meet you
O, shake my Mother's hand, for me
