Gillian Welch — I Had A Real Good Mother And Father lyrics

I had a real good mother and father
And they surely stood the test
And now they're in bright glory
And are sleeping on the savior's breast

They set a good example for me
And they taught me how to pray
Now I truly converted
And walkin' on the narrow way
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/gillian-welch-i-had-a-real-good-mother-and-father-lyrics.html ]
I know that if I can not meet them on high
Then how lonely I will be
For what good is my journey
If I miss out on eternity

I had a real good mother and father
And they surely stood the test
And now they're in bright glory
And are sleeping on the savior's breast
