a song that goes: "telephone operator received a call one day. It brought a tear drop to her eyes, to hear the small voice say."

I know it's called "A telephone operator" but I can't find it anywhere either.
I remember some of the lyrics.

A telephone operator
Received a call one day,
It brought a tear to her eyes
To hear a small voice say

Please may I speak to mommy
She's with the angel band
Just tell her it's about daddy
I know she'll understand

You see my daddy was a drunkard
and wicked too I know
It made her so unhappy
Because she loved him so

Sorry that is all I can remember of the song.

By any chance has anyone managed to find this song or any information on it? One my mom used to sing to me and I've wanted to figure this out since her passing years ago. Thanks.

She replied to the operator:

How far is heaven ?
When can I go?
To see my mommy, she's there I know
How far is heaven let's go tonight
I want my mommy to hold me tight

this is what I remember of that song or one real close to it

A telephone operator received a call one day,
It brought a teardrop to her eyes to hear a small voice say,

"Please may I speak to mommy,
She's with the angel band
Just say it's about daddy, I know she'll understand."

You see he was a drunkard and wicked too I know
It made us so unhappy because we loved him so

Before our mommy left us she taught me how to pray
So that I could pray that daddy would quit his wicked ways.

Last night I heard him praying just like she used to pray
I heard him asking Jesus to take his sins away.
I'd like to tell my mommy up there beyond the blue
That when i come to meet her, I'll bring my daddy too.

Isn't it funny how we know the same song, but remember it sang differently. My Granny taught it to me when I was a pre teen, and only remember some of it now that I'm 54. But we still don't know where it came from.

The telephone operator received a call one day, she heard a small voice saying, May I speak to my mommy she's with the Angels band. before my mommy left me she taught me how to pray so I could pray my daddy would leave his wicked ways, my daddy's a drunkard and wicked to I know, but one night I heard my daddy praying that Jesus would take his sins away. So tell my mommy when I come to meet her I'll bring my daddy too.

This is the rest of it. My Mommy taught it to me and used to sing it with me too..
