    "Two Little Orphans" Lyrics

    George Jones feat. Dolly Parton

    Dolly Parton

    Two little children a boy and a girl
    Sat by and old church door
    The little girls feet were as brown as the curl
    That fell on the dress that she wore.

    The little boys clothes were all tattered and torn
    They shone beneath his blue eyes
    Why don't you go home to your mommy, I said
    And this was the maidens reply.

    Mommy's in heaven, angels took her away
    Left Jim and I all alone
    We've no one to love us and daddy is dead
    And our darling mother is gone.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Mommy got sick, angels took her away
    To dwell in those mansions so bright
    She said she would come for her children someday
    And I guess she's coming tonight.

    The sexton came early to ring the church bell
    And found them beneath the snow white
    The angels made room for the orphans to dwell
    Up in heaven with their mommy that night...
