​Song To Mama

This song is by Johnny Cash and appears on the album International Superstar (1972).

Dear, dear Mama, now that we're older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me

She always got me out of bed early Sunday morn'
And took me out to church where I could learn about Lord
Mama tried to tell me how my life was gonna be
But I was young and wild, and it was hard for me to see

Dear Mama, now that we're older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me

Mama, you always taught me right from wrong when I was growin' up
And it's a pity that most people like me have to try everything for
Themselves
I realize now that you always knew just what you were talkin' about
And mama for all that hard work you did
And for the sacrifices you made for us
I just wanna say, thanks a lot


Dear Mama, now that we are older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me
Mama, you mean a lot to me
