Johnny Cash - Mother's Love lyrics

We are in Nazareth within a few feet of this place Jesus lived as a child With his father Joseph the carpenter and his mother Mary In Jerusalem the mother of Jesus watched her son die on the cross She stood by to give him the only thing that she had left a mother's love It was my mother who first told me of Israel stories of this land That made it so dear to me that I am draw like a prodigal son to relive these stories Here's a two thousand year old story that tells of the strength of a mother's love Once a young man lived with his mother beside a great forest The young man was in love with a beautiful girl who lived in the forest He told the girl in the forest that if she would marry him He would bring her anything that she asked Knowing that the young man lived with his mother the girl said Take your dagger and cut out your mother's heart And bring it to me and I will marry you Well this made the young man very sad But he wanted to merry the girl so he k**ed his mother and cut out her heart Running through the forest with his mother's heart in his hands He stumbled and fell and dropped the heart As he was getting up his mother's heart cried out from the ground My son did you hurt yourself when you fell
