      About "Little Joe"

      Lyrics for Bill Monroe and His Bluegrass Boys - "Little Joe"

      What will the birds do, mother, in the spring
      Will they gather the crumbs around our door
      Will they fly from the nest to the top of the tree
      And ask why Joe wanders out no more

      What will the kitten do, mother, all alone
      Will she stray from her frolic for a day
      Will she lie on the rug beside my bed
      Like she did before I went away

      What will Thomas, the old gardener do
      When you ask him for flowers for me
      Will he give you a rose he has tended with care
      The fairest one that lies around the tree

      I saw the tears coming to his honest eyes
      He said it was the wind that brought 'em there
      As he gazed on my cheeks growing paler each day
      His hand trembled over my hair

      Keep Tag, mother, my little dog
      I know that he'll mourn for me too
      Keep him though blind and older he grows
      To sleep in the whole summer through

      Show him my coat, mother, so he may know
      That his master then will be dead
      Speak to him kindly and often of Joe
      And pat him on his brown shaggy head

      And you, dearest mother, shall miss me for a while
      But in heaven I shall no larger grow
      And any kind angel you meet at the gate
      Can take you to your darling Little Joe
