One Little Reason

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Woman of the World/To Make a Man (1969).

There's a reason I keep living while I'm dyin' slow
Everybody thinks we're happy but we're not
I don't know why but I let him keep me cryin'
So I guess one little reason's all I've got.

When I lay me down to sleep I know I must wake up
And the reason that I do sure means a lot
Someday my reason will grow up and then will break up
For this one little reason's all I've got.

Little handprints on the wall, little footsteps in the hall
And little arms that reach out for me in the night
And when she says I love you so my mommy
I know this one little reason's my whole life.

Little handprints on the wall, little footsteps in the hall
And little arms that reach out for me in the night
And when she says I love you so my mommy
I know this one little reason's my whole life...
