I Dreamed About Mama Last Night (as Luke The Drifter) by Hank Williams


I've just been to heaven with someone so true
I dreamed about mama last night
She read me the Bible like she used to do
I dreamed about mama last night
She never closed her eyes and sleep
'Til we were all in bed
And on party nights till we came home
She often sat and read
We little thought about it then
For we were young and gay
Just how much mama worried
When we children were away
We only knew she never slept
Then when we were out at night
That she waited just to know
That we'd all come home all right
Why sometimes when we'd stay away
'Til one or two or three
It seemed to us that mama heard
The turning of the key
For always when we'd step inside
She'd call and we'd reply
But we were all too young back then
To understand the reason why
Until the last one had returned
She'd always keep a light
For mama couldn't sleep
Until she kissed us all goodnight
She had to know that we were safe
Before she went to rest
For she seemed to fear the world might harm
The ones she loved the best
And once she said when you're grown
To women and to men
Perhaps I'll sleep the whole night through
I may be different then
And so it seemed that night and day
We knew a mother's care
That always when we got back home
We'd find her waitin' there
Then came the night
That we were called together 'round her bed
The children are all with you now
The kindly doctor said
And in her eyes there gleamed again
That old time tender light
That told that she'd been waitin'
Just to know we were all right
She smiled that old familiar smile
And prayed to God to keep
Her children safe from harm throughout the years
And then she went to sleep
My dream is a treasure that I'll always keep
I dreamed about mama last night
