Verse 1: There’s nobody just like my mother How well I remember the day Her voice was so loving and tender As she said so you’re going away I said yes but I’ll come back some day
Chorus: There’s nobody just like my mother Her likeness is not in another Even now I can hear her say “be of good cheer” Oh! How well I remember my mother.
Verse 2: That day I said goodbye dear mother As the boat sailed away with the crew As she waved I shall always be knowing That God will take good care of you. And I called mother dear I’ll be true.
