Mama (Afraid To Say Goodbye)




(E. King, J.& D. Van Zant, Gary Rossington)




She'd wake us up early every mornin'

She'd help us say our prayers every night

She was always there to help us through the hard times

We could count on her to make everything alright


I remember swingin' on the front porch

Papa said there's somethin' I need to say tonight

Mama's been sick for a long time

Let's pray to God she can make it through the night



Mama don't wanna say goodbye

She said wipe those tears from your eyes

Mama I don't wanna say goodbye

It was written in the Heavens and the skies above

Son I gave you birth showed you all my love

I can't think of this life without you it's hard to try

Mama I'm afraid to say goodbye


Now kids I've been hangin' on a long time

I hate to leave this world before your grown

Remember everything that I've taught you

Remember all the good times when I'm gone


(repeat chorus)


She whispered in my ear before she passed away

Son it's time to be a man ain't nothin' left to say

Jesus walked on water I know it's true

When it comes time he'll call you home

I hope your ready too


(repeat chorus)
