​Mama Say A Prayer

This song is by Dolly Parton and appears on the album In The Good Old Days (1969) and on the compilation album Best Of (1999).

The bright lights of the city are a pretty site to see.
Perhaps they're extra pretty to a country girl like me.
Temptation waits at every turn and it won't let me be.
So mama, when you pray tonight, say a special prayer for me.
I miss your tender good-night kiss
Of love and understanding.
The good-night kisses I get now,
Are cruel and so demanding.
So mama when you pray tonight,
And while you're on your knees,
Mama say a special prayer for me.

The nights get cold and lonely when you're faraway from home,
And lonely makes it easy for a good girl to go wrong.
Evil eyes search through the night for lonely girls like me,
So mama when you pray tonight, say a special prayer for me.

I miss your tender good-night kiss
Of love and understanding.
The good-night kisses I get now,
Are cruel and so demanding.
So mama when you pray tonight,
And while you're on your knees,
Mama say a special prayer for me.
