Jim Greer & the Maco-o-chee valley folks

When it's lamplighting time in the valley

There's a lamp shining bright in the valley
In a window, it's shining for me
And I know that my mother is pining
For the boy she is longing to see.

When it's lamplighting time in the valley
Then in dreams, I go back to my home
I can see that old lamp in the window
It will guide me wherever I roam.

In the lamplight each night I can see her
As she rocks in her chair, to and fro
And she prays that I'll come back to see her
Yet, I know that I never can go.

So, she lights up the lamp and sits waiting
For she knows of the time I have done
But I'll change all my ways and I'll meet her
Up in heaven, when life's race is done.
