Stonewall Jackson Lyrics

Mother The Queen Of My Heart Lyrics
I had a home out in Texas out where the Bluebonnet grew

I had the kindest old mother how happy we were just we two

Then one day the angels called her a debt we all have to pay

She'd call me close to her bedside these last few words to say

Son don't start drinking and gambling promise you'll always go straight

Ten years have passed since that promise the promise I thought I'd never break

Then I started drinking for past time and soon I was bad as them all

At cards I was king of the tables never dreaming that I'd ever fall

Then one night I sat at the table the big game was down to a draw

And I drew the one that would beat them but I turned it and here's what I saw

I saw the sad face of my mother and somehow she seemed to say

My son you have broken your promise you made me when I went away

I gave all my wins to a newsboy went straight home and burned all the cards

And I'll never forget that last promise to my mother the Queen of my heart
