There's an old and faded picture on the wall
That has been a-hanging there for many a year
'Tis a picture of my mother, for I know there is no other
That can take the place of mother on the wall

On the wall (On the wall)
On the wall (On the wall)
How I love that dear old picture on the wall
Time is swiftly passing by and I bow my head and cry
'Cause I know I'll meet my mother after all

Yes, the children all have gathered, all have gone
And I have a little family of my own
And I know I love them well, more than any tongue can tell
But I'll hold that dear old picture on the wall

On the wall (On the wall)
On the wall (On the wall)
How I love that dear old picture on the wall
Time is swiftly passing by and I bow my head and cry
'Cause I know I'll meet my mother after all

Since I lost that dear old mother years ago
There is none to which with troubles I can go
As my guitar makes its chords I am praying to the Lord
Let me hold that dear old picture on the wall

On the wall (On the wall)
On the wall (On the wall)
How I love that dear old picture on the wall
Time is swiftly passing by and I bow my head and cry
'Cause I know I'll meet my mother after all

Not exactly, but I could have two different songs combined in my mind. This is very close though. Thanks
