I listened to the recording and the lyrics sound like this to me.

A Light In The Window – Ray Griff

My brother was waitin’ when I got off the bus
He gripped my hand but his feelings showed
His face was long and he didn’t say too much
Till we started home, down the dusty road

Then he said, “Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at night for us when we walk through the door.
She won’t be makin’ no apple pies on Sundays like she did before.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.”

Sister was weepin’, when we drove through the gate
She ran to me, with a helpless sigh
I held her close and I kissed her pretty face
Then I dried the tears, that were in her eyes

Then she said, “Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at night for us when we walk through the door.
She won’t be makin’ no apple pies on Sundays like she did before.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.”

Papa was cryin’, like he was all done in
His eyes were red and his voice was weak
I shared his grief and my heart went out to him
Then he turned to me and began to speak

Then he said, “Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at night for us when we walk through the door.
She won’t be makin’ no apple pies on Sundays like she did before.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.”

Then he said, “Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at night for us when we walk through the door.
She won’t be makin’ no apple pies on Sundays like she did before.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the window anymore.”

Hey poopsie, we can't have you hanging by your last straw so give this a try.
I have a bad cold so my hearing is not at it's best today, however this is how it sounds to me:

A Light In The Window – Ray Griff

[B] My brother was waitin’ when [E] I got off the [A] bus
He gripped my hand [F#] but his feelings [B] showed
His face was long and he [E] didn’t say too [B] much
Till we started home, [F#] down the dusty [B] road

Then he said, “Mama won’t be [E] leavin’ a light in the [B] window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at [E] night for us when [B] we walk through the [F#] door.
She won’t be [B] makin’ no apple pies on Sundays [E] like she did be-[B]-fore.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the [F#] window any-[B]-more.”

Sister was weepin’, when [E] we drove through the [B] gate
She ran to me, [F#] with a helpless [B] sigh
I held her close and I [E] kissed her pretty [B] face
Then I dried the tears, [F#] that were in her [B] eyes

Then she said, “Mama won’t be [E] leavin’ a light in the [B] window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at [E] night for us when [B] we walk through the [F#] door.
She won’t be [B] makin’ no apple pies on Sundays [E] like she did be-[B]-fore.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the [F#] window any-[B]-more.” //// //// [G]//// /

Papa was [C] cryin’, like [F] he was all done [C] in
His eyes were red [G] and his voice was [C] weak
I shared his grief and my [F] heart went out to [C] him
Then he turned to me [G] and began to [C] speak

Then he said, “Mama won’t be [F] leavin’ a light in the [C] window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at [F] night for us when [C] we walk through the [G] door.
She won’t be [C] makin’ no apple pies on Sundays [F] like she did be-[C]-fore.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the [G] window any-[C]-more.”

Then he said, “Mama won’t be [F] leavin’ a light in the [C] window anymore.
She won’t be waitin’ up late at [F] night for us when [C] we walk through the [G] door.
She won’t be [C] makin’ no apple pies on Sundays [F] like she did be-[C]-fore.
Mama won’t be leavin’ a light in the [G] window any-[C]-more.”
