(God put a song in the heart of an angel and softly she sang it to me)
Of the old homeplace where I grew up of the days both good and bad

I've seen the nights when my daddy would cry
But all he ever got was a badland farm and seven hungry mouths to feed
And yet and yet our homefire never flickered once
Mama took the hymn book down and mama sang a song

And come morning Rock of Ages would wake me gently once again
And he'd read it read it loud and long
And I always felt that maybe our house was blessed
Sister left home first I guess and then Bob and then Tommy and then Dan

And those were the greatest days of all when mama sang a song
I guess the house is still standing I don't get to go back much anymore
No voice is left to fill those halls and no steps to grace the floor
But I'll always believe that this world is a better place
