SAVE THE CHILDREN (Linda Hargrove / Pete Drake) Linda Hargrove - 1975 Mama and Daddy couldn't save their marriage to save their lives Mama took us kids and put us in the car and rode away one night And I remember Daddy cryin' on the porch as his life rode out of sight Mama tried hard to hide the tears, but I could see 'em through the highway lights Now Mama and Daddy didn't want their children to grow up wrong And they knew it wasn't right for us to see how they couldn't get along And I heard Mama prayin' real soft when she thought we were all asleep She was saying Jesus Lord, I'll put them in your keep Save the children, Lord, don't let them go astray And Lord, please forgive me for this day Mama she don't know the kind of life I live today Livin' in this neon hell where the lonely pay to play Somehow despite what Mama said this child has gone astray Lord, I know your mem'ry's good and you'll remember what my Mama prayed Save the children, Lord, don't let them go astray And Lord, please forgive me for this day Save the children, Lord, don't let them go astray And Lord, please forgive me for this day (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2012)
