Song Description

This song always seems to be chosen as one of the favorites from the 1993 "Something Real" C.D.

Story Behind the Song

an adult child of an alcoholic parent reflects on the situation after the parent is dead.


Well you used to love your whiskey baby
and you used to love your dreams
You used to love your cocaine
Yeah you used to love that scene
Oh but yesterday I saw you
An' you was lookin' like old news
10 feet under and you wasn't wearin' your best shoes

An' I say, Oh oh Mama won't you
watch your baby sing the blues !

Oh yeah, mama was a gypsy baby
oh an' me I'm just a gypsy's child
growin' up a little crazy baby
Oh and maybe just a little bit wild
But standin' on this barroom stage
Well it seems to me a wee bit strange
All eyes upon someone
who is definitely deranged

an I say, Oh Oh Mama won't you
Watch your baby play the game !

Went to the Doctor
He says a baby you's a doin' just fine
Nothin' wrong with music oh
It's the road that's been your crime
An' I said, Oh please Doctor xanex
Won't ya just a give me something for the pain
I been playin' this guitar for 10 hours in the pourin' rain
He said, Oh sweet child a mercy
Whatcha think I'm gonna do ?
No pill is gonna fix the brain
of a crazy kinda woman like you

An' I say, Oh Oh Mama won't you
watch your baby sing the blues
ooh ooh Mama won't you
Watch your baby sing the blues !
