    "I Dreamed About Mama Last Night" Lyrics

    Hank Williams Jr.

    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 close her eyes and sleep till 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 when we were out at night
    That she waited just to know that we'd all come home alright

    Why sometimes when we'd stay away till one or two or three
    It seemed to us that mama heard the turnin' of the key

    For always when we'd step aside 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
    Well she seemed to fear that the world might harm
    The ones that she loved the best
    And once she told me 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 the gleam again that old time tender light
    That told that she's just been waitin' to know we were alright
    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
