Song Meaning
Verse 1
I received a letter that my man was dyin'
I received a letter that my man was dyin'
I caught the first plane and went home flyin'
Verse 2
When I got there, the folks had gathered around
When I got there, the folks had gathered around
His eyes was set and his face was full of frowns
Verse 3
He wasn't dead, but he was slowly dyin'
He wasn't dead, but he was slowly dyin'
And to think of him I just can't help from cryin'
Verse 4
I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground
I followed my daddy to the buryin' ground
I watched the pall bearers slowly let him down
Verse 5
That was the last time I saw my daddy's face
That was the last time I saw my daddy's face
Mama love you, sweet papa, but I wish I could take your place
