- Old Scotch Mother Mine

Here is a sentimental song about an emigrant's mother who is far away in Scotland. It was written by Ray McKay and Joseph Maxwell.

Old Scotch Mother Mine

In an old Scottish home that is dear to my mind
Lives an old Scottish mother, so gentle and kind.
Trouble and care may have wrinkled her brow,
But with thoughts sweet and tender,
I think of her now.

Old Scotch Mother Mine,
You are with me all the while,
Your kind old eyes
And your dear sweet smile.


Tho' we're far apart,
For the sake of Auld Lang Syne -
God bless and keep you
Old Scotch Mother Mine.

Auld Lang Syne=Days Long Ago
