Mother o’ Mine

If I were hanged on the highest hill,
 Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine! 
I know whose love would follow me still,
 Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine! 
If I were drowned in the deepest sea,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine !  
I know whose tears would come down to me, 
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine ! 
If I were damned of body and soul,
I know whose prayers would make me whole,
Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine!
