A SONG TO MAMA (Carter / Carter) The Carter Family & Johnny Cash - 1971 Dear, dear Mama, now that we're older We can see the load on your tired old shoulders Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier Mama, you mean a lot to me She always got me out of bed early Sunday morn' And took me out to church where I could learn about Lord Mama tried to tell me how my life was gonna be But I was young and wild, and it was hard for me to see Dear Mama, now that we're older We can see the load on your tired old shoulders Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier Mama, you mean a lot to me SPOKEN: (Mama, you always taught me right from wrong when I was growin' up And it's a pity that most people like me have to try everything for themselves I realize now that you always knew just what you were talkin' about And mama for all that hard work you did And for the sacrifices you made for us I just wanna say, thanks a lot) Dear Mama, now that we are older We can see the load on your tired old shoulders Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier Mama, you mean a lot to me Mama, you mean a lot to me (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen - December 2003)
