Song Description

Lyrics

Momma's on A Fast Train
┬ęTim Sharp 2014


Verse 1
She didn't say a damn thing, just climbed aboard that train
Don't know her destination, she don't even know her name
I'm gonna miss my Momma cause she ain't here at all
Momma's on a fast train and she ain't gettin' off

Verse 2
This lady ain't my Momma, she ain't my Mom no more
She used to love to see us, but that was all before
She walked into the darkness of her mind's disease
No charge to board the fast train, but Lord that trip ain't free

Chorus
I wish the Lord would take her. I wish He'd set her free
Get her off this damned old train with a little dignity
Momma's headin' downhill and it's a stone cold fact
My Momma's on a fast train and she ain't comin' back

Verse 3
If she could only 'see' me. If we could visit for a while
I'd like to talk to Momma. Lord I'd love to see her smile
Now she's sitting here beside me, kissin' her baby doll
Momma's on a fast train that slowed down to a crawl

Chorus
I wish the Lord would take her. I wish He'd set her free
Get her off this damned old train with a little dignity
Momma don't deserve this, but it's a cold, hard fact
My Momma's on a fast train and she ain't comin' back

Closing
I'm gonna miss my Momma cause she ain't here at all
Momma's on a fast train and she ain't gettin' off
