    Lyrics

    She grew up plain and simple in a farming town
    Her daddy played the fiddle and use to do the calling
    When they had hoedowns
    She said the neighbors would come
    And they'd move all my grandma's furniture 'round
    And there'd be twenty or more there on the old wooden floor
    Dancing to a country sound

    The Carters and Jimmy Rodgers played her favorite songs
    And on Saturday nights there was a radio show
    And she would sing along
    And I'll never forget her face when she revealed to me
    That she'd dreamed about singing at The Grand Ol' Opry

    Her eyes, oh how they sparkled when she sang those songs
    While she was hanging the clothes on the line
    I was a kid just a humming along
    Well, I'd be playing in the grass,
    To her what might of seemed obliviously
    But there ain't no doubt about it, she sure made her mark on me

    She played old gospel records on the phonograph
    She turned them up loud and we'd sing along
    But those days have passed
    Just now that I am older it occurs to me
    That I was singing in the grandest opry

    And we sang Sweet Rose of Sharon, Abide With Me
    'til I ride The Gospel Ship to Heaven's Jubilee
    And In That Great Triumphant Morning my soul will be free
    And My Burdens Will Be Lifted when my savior's face I see
    So I Don't Want to Get Adjusted to This World below
    But I know He'll Pilot Me 'til it comes time to go
    Oh, nothing on this earth is half as dear to me
    As the sound of my Mama's Opry

    And we sang Sweet Rose of Sharon, Abide With Me
    'til I ride The Gospel Ship to Heaven's Jubilee
    And In That Great Triumphant Morning my soul will be free
    And My Burdens Will Be Lifted when my savior's face I see
    So I Don't Want to Get Adjusted to This World below
    But I know He'll Pilot Me 'til it comes time to go
    Oh, nothing on this earth is half as dear to me
    As the sound of my Mama's Opry
