Words and Music by Dallas Frazier
        
        A7
Oh, the path was deep and wide
                G              D
From footsteps leading to our cabin
  G                   A7               D
Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp
     A7
And late at night a hand would knock
     G                    D
And there would stand a stranger
      G             A7              D
Yes, Im the son of Hickory Hollers tramp

           D                    G
Yeah, the weeds were high, the corn was dry
      D
When daddy took to drinking
G              D                        A7
Him and Sally Walker, they up and ran away
D                         G
Then Momma shed a silent tear
     D
And promised fourteen children
   G                 A7          D  
I swear youll never see a hungry day

     D            G
When Momma sacrificed her pride
     D
The neighbours started talking
    G                 D
But we were much too young
                               A7
To understand the things they said
D                    G
All we really cared about
     D
Was Mommas chicken dumplings
       G
And a goodnight kiss
  A7              D
Before we went to bed

                   A7 
Oh, you know, the path was deep and wide
                G              D
From footsteps leading to our cabin
 G                    A7               D
Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp
     A7
And late at night a hand would knock
     G                    D
And there would stand a stranger
     G              A7              D
Yes, Im the son of Hickory Hollers tramp

      D                   G
When Daddy left and destitution
D
Came upon our family
 G                      D
Not one neighbour volunteered
                   A7
To lend a helping hand
    D                           G
So just let em gossip all they want
     D
She loved us, and she raised us
     G
The proof is standing here
   A7         D
A full grown man

D                         G
Last summer Momma passed away
     D
And left the ones who loved her
G                  D
Each and every one is
                              A7
More than grateful for their birth
    A7                 G
And each Sunday she receives
       D
A big bouquet of fourteen roses
       G
With a card that reads
     A7              D
The Greatest Mom on Earth

                  A7
Oh, you know, the path was deep and wide
                G              D
From footsteps leading to our cabin
 G                    A7              D
Above the door there burned a scarlet lamp
     A7          
And late at night a hand would knock
     G                   D
And there would stand a stranger
     G              A7              D
Yes, Im the son of Hickory Hollers tramp
