Kenny Rogers - "Mama's Waiting"

As i drive toward home i picture Mama waiting
She'll be glad to see her big time girl come home
She gets little in return for all she's given
and i'm all she's got since daddy's gone.

Now i'm forty miles away and i'm just wonder'n
why i ever told her i was doing well,
when i first went wrong i should have turned to daddy
but it's hard to get back up when you are down.


it's the laast time i'll see flowers in the morning,
It's the last tine I'll hear robins in the spring
It's the last time I'll fell Nana's arms around me
It's the last time here on earth I'll ever be.

As I drive away, behind me Mama's waving
To her girl, who is all she ever hoped to be
Now she'll say her final prayer
And go meet daddy
And I'm glad she's only seen one side of me.

Now to-day makes thirteen years in federal prison
And tonight I'll walk my last few steps alone
But i can't help thinking somewhere Mama's waiting
Once again to see her big time girl come home.
