DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW Gordon Lightfoot 1968 Does your mother know, you had to go someday Does your mother know, that you would grow so fast Anyway, that's all you think about You'd call her if you could. But the letters that you write In the faded winter lightJ Just tell her, they tell her That you've got ten dollars and you'll be all right And when you get straight you're gonna come back east some day. Does your mother know, you had a man in the west Does your mother know, you drove him from your door Anyway that's all you think about You'd call her if you could. (bridge) Does your mother know, you walked all day in the rain Does your mother know, how deep your love could be Anyway that's all you think about You'd call her if you could. But the letters that you write In the faded winter light Just tell her, they tell her That you've got ten dollars and your rent costs eight And when you get straight you're gonna come back east some day. But the letters that you write In the faded winter light Just tell her, they tell her. (Transcribed by David Story - February 2013)
