VERSE 01: I’m growing weary darling mother;/Weary of the world do drear;/There can never be another,/To my sad heart half so dear,/Well oh! Well do I remember,/Sweet ah sweet the memory/That in happy days of childhood,/You have often prayed for meVERSE 02: Oft I think of thee dear mother,/And of childhood’s happy days;/When the world was fill’d with pleasure/And my heart with merry lays./Long the days now seem while wandring/But when e’er I think of thee./Back my heart will turn with rapture,/Asking “mother, pray for me”VERSE 03: Years have pass’d since last we parted/Since together bent the knee/But those happy days will ever/Cling in memory to me./Now my heart is fill’d with longing/Far those days so full of glee./And I ask while far I’m wand’ring./Darling “mother, pray for me”CHORUS: Though I’m wand’ring far away, mother,/Back my heart will turn to thee;/And when praying wilt thou ever,/Darling mother pray for me.
