Lyrics

MAMA'S SONG
T. Edwin Doss
Copry. 2002

MANY YEARS AGO WHEN I WASJUST A LITTLE BOY (GIRL),

MY MAMA USED TO SING A SONG , SHE WOULD ROCK ME FAST ASLEEP.

THOUGH THE WORDS, I CAN'T RECALL, HAVE BEEN FOREVER LOST IN TIME,

THE TUNE IS LOCKED WITHIN THE LOVE SHE GAVE, N' THE MEMORIES
I WILL KEEP.

MANY TIMES WE HAVE SO MUCH TO GAIN,

WHEN ALL WE HAD TO LOSE ....WERE THE PROMISES

OF SOFT REFRAINS, AND THE PATHS WE DIDN'T CHOOSE.

LIKE THE ROCKING CHAIR, SWAYING THERE, WITH THE

SQUEAKING OF THE FLOOR....MY MAMA'S SONG

TAKES ME BACK TO A PLACE I'VE BEEN BEFORE.

I CAN STILL SEE THE FIRE GLOWING...DANCING IN HER EYES,

I DREAMED ABOUT TOMORROW, SHE WOULD ROCK ME RIGHT ALONG.

LIKE A FLOWER IN THE SPRING-TIME, WHERE THE RAINS HAVE GATHERED

'ROUND....I WILL NEVER THIRST FOR BEAUTY,

WHEN I PLAY MY MAMA'S SONG.

CHORUS

SOMETIMES IN THE SHADOWS OF A DEEP AND PEACEFUL SLEEP
I AWAKEN TO THE CHILL OF A PASSING THUNDERSTORM...
I ALWAYS HEAR MY MAMA'S SONG....HER SWEET AND GENTLE VOICE,.. FEEL THE EVERLASTING PRESCENSE OF A LOVE THAT KEPT ME WARM.
