Title
Remember you have but one mother
Additional title: er dear heart was leaving the old home, She knew they'd be parted for years; She folded him close to her bosom, And murmured these words thro' her tears. [first line]
Additional title: You're leaving a heart that is faithful, That loves you, my boy, as no other; When dark is life's sea, You'll turn to me; Remember you have but one mother. [first line of chorus]
