Mama Prayed for Me
by The Williams Brothers



I remember, when I was just a child
Sitting on mama’s knee
Mama told me
All about the bible
So that I, I might be free
She told me, when I was very young
This old race gonna be hard to run
Oh about early in the morning
I know she
prayed for me
She prayed for me
She prayed
Prayed for me
Prayed for me
She prayed, she prayed for me
Oh about early in the morning
I know she prayed for me

Now when children go away
Mama prayed both night and day
You’d hear her say Lord
Take care of my children
And don’t let em go astray
Oh she’d fall straight down on her knees
Crying Lord take care of my children please
Oh about early in the morning
I know, I know she
prayed for me
She prayed for me
Prayed for me
She prayed, she prayed for me
She prayed for me
She prayed, she prayed for me
Mother bowed down on her bended knees
She prayed for me
Yes she did
She prayed for me
Mama prayed
She prayed for me
I remember the time
She prayed for me
Mama would be in that old kitchen
She prayed for me
Rattling them pots and pans
She prayed for me
See I was nothing but a small boy
She prayed for me
But it still hangs on in my mind
She prayed for me
I want everybody to know
She prayed for me
That my mama prayed for me
She prayed for me
(ad lib and fade out)
