How Can A Boy Be Forgetful Of Mother

Cat. #0420 (MFH #252) - As sung by Mr. Herbert Philbreck, Crocker, Missouri on October 28, 1959

VERSE 1
How can a boy be forgetful of Mother
When she lies sleeping so peaceful an' still
Out in a twilight winking and gleaming
Comes th sweet memory for Mother loves you

VERSE 2
Do not forget her, but ever remember
Council she gives you an' loves you so true
Out in a twilight winking an' gleaming
Comes a sweet memory for Mother loves you
