[D] This mornin' I gazed, through the [G] window so [D] clear
And I couldn't help, but shed just a [A] tear
I bowed my [D] head, and [G] I did [D] pray
For I knew this was someone, yes [A] someone's last [D] day

[D] Someone, yes [G] someone's last [D] day
Some soul, is [E-7] driftin' a-[A-7]-way
Their life is [D] o'er, on [G] earth no [D] more
For this is someone, yes [A] someone's last [D] day

When I think of this world, that is so full of sin
The Saviour still calls, but you won't Listen
You might be the one, who will pass away
For today will be someone, yes someone's last day

It could be some mother, who's leaving today
Her children and kin, have wandered away
So write her your love, my brother, I pray
It might be your mother, yes mother's last day
