Mama's Baby Child
by Lightnin' Hopkins



I was born'd on the levee, I'm my mama's baby child
Yes, you know, it ain't but one thing I hate, some women have made mama's baby wild
Yes, if I'd have listened, yes, to what my mama said
If I'd have listened, yes, to what my mama said
Yes, you know, I wouldn't be here this evening, I'm talking about, with a hung-down head
Yes, you know, I'm going back home to mama, fall down on my mama's knee
I'm going back home to mama, fall down on my mama's knee
Yes, you know, I'm gonna ask my mama, "Please, ma'am, pray for me"
