Mama You Were Right
 
Lyrics
VERSE
Mama, you were right about him all the time
You told me: "Girl, love can be so very blind"
You said be careful thinkin' that it's all for real
I said: "Mama, all I know is how I feel."

VERSE
He always knew the perfect thing to say and do
You said: "Don't believe a word of it, girl, it's never true."
I could not listen any more, so I turned to go
Lookin' back on it now, how did you know?

CHORUS
Oh, mama, you were right
I got blinded by a love light
Headstrong and wrong is what I was
Oh, mama, you were right

VERSE
You took one look at him and said: "Girl, stay away."
I didn't care what you said; I loved him anyway
We left town on a Friday night; it was pourin' rain
You kissed me 'bye, wiped a tear, and turned away

VERSE
He had a truck and dreams to fly a Navy jet
I was on a train you said you knew was bound to wreck
The road was long; it took some time for me to see
What I put you through has come back to me

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
I'd put back the pieces if I could; I'll make it up to you somehow

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

TAG
Mama, you were right about him all the time
