A Letter To My Mother

A Letter To My Mother

(Solomon Small / Gilbert / Nikle)

Ray Noble and His Orchestra


Sung in English

The lable credits Gilbert / Nikle (English version?) but sources suggest it was written by Solomon Shmulevitsh [a.k.a. Small]

I strayed from home
Why did I roam
I miss my mother's affection

Her rocking chair
Her silver hair
Is in my fond, recollection

I see her in my dreams
She's crying, very still
Though we are miles and miles apart
I'll bring a cheer to mother's heart

So, here is what I'm going to do
I'll write a letter to my mother
And tell her just how much I love her
She worries so, but I know
Angels watch above her

There's magic in the name of mother
I realize there is no other
I'm sealing this, with a kiss
This letter to my dear old darling mother
