(Chris Hillman - Gram Parson)

No affection were the words that stuck on my mind
When she walked out on me for the very last time
Oh mama, sweet mama can you tell me what to say
I don't know what I've done to be treated this way.

In a cold dirty room that's where I found myself
With a bottle of wine and some pills off the shelf
Oh mama, sweet mama can you tell me what to say
I don't know what I've done and I'm feeling so ashamed.

--- Instrumental ---

Then an angel appeared she was just seventeen
In a dirty old town with a conscious so clean
Oh mamma, sweet mamma can you tell me what to say
She's brought back the life that I once threw away.

She's brought back the life that I once threw away...
