Mother’s Daughter 
By Lisa Dudley

I am my mother’s daughter
I wear her ring with pride
She was a good and a fine, fine woman
And she always did what was right
So whenever I feel lost and alone
Whenever I am blue
I wear her ruby on my hand
And I know what dear Mama would do

Chorus:
She would sing to the world
In a voice so proud and free
She would call upon the angels
Dancing joyfully
She would dance through a rainstorm
And pray on her knees at dawn
Welcoming a new day
With a grateful and faithful song

Verse.2:
I am my mother’s daughter
I am a long-stemmed rose
And these thorns are here to remind me
To stay soft and open
Mama always told me that forgiveness
Is both strong and sacred too
When I wear her ruby on my hand
I know what dear Mama would do

Chorus

Bridge: I miss my Mama so…
She’s been gone since long ago
Do you think she can really see
How much like her I have come to be?

Chorus: I sing to the world

Tag:
I am my mother’s daughter
I am a long-stemmed rose
