George “Shortbuckle” Roark

“My Mother’s Hands,” by Shortbuckle Roark and Family

Recorded in Bristol. TN, Nov. 4, 1928.

 

Oh, those beautiful, beautiful hands

Oh, they neither were wide nor small

Yet my mother’s hands were the fairest and the loveliest hands of all

 
My mother’s dear hands, her beautiful hands

Which guided me safe o’er life’s sands

I bless God’s name for the memories of mother’s own beautiful hands

 
Oh, those beautiful, beautiful hands

I stood by her coffin one day

And I kissed those hands so cold and white,  as white and peaceful they lay

 
Oh, those beautiful, beautiful hands

I shall clasp them again once more

As my feet touch the banks of that heavenly land we shall meet on that shining shore
