​Put Me In My Place

This song is by Joe Purdy and appears on the album Joe Purdy (2001).

He was just a child, when she left him there alone
He was just too wild, she was just too young
Too much to handle he was always asking why
She didn't know the answers, she'd just hang her head and cry

He said, "Mama I'm afraid that no one will calm me down
And I'm just scared that no one will know how
To put me in my place
To put me in my place
Put me in my place
To put me in my place
Where do I belong?"

Father never forgave him, for making mother leave
"You could up and die, boy, it wouldn't bother me"
Sent him off to school, somewhere up north
Way too many rules to follow, didn't have a choice

He said, "I'm afraid that no one can calm me down
And I'm just scared that no one will know how
To put me in my place
Oh to put me in my place
To put me in my place
To put me in my place
Where do I belong?"

He's all grown up, got a wife of his own
But he started a family now he's never home
She says, "How am I suppose to love, you're always out on the town
How's your daughter gonna know you if you won't come around?"

Goes to tuck her in, he can never see
And she turns to him, but it was only me

She says, "I'm afraid that no one can calm me down"
He said, "Baby I can't believe this, I think we finally found out how
To put me in my place
Oh to put me in my place
Oh won't you just put me in my place
Come on and put me in my place
Where we belong"
