MAMA'S HANDS I said goodbye to that plain little miner town With just a few old clothes that layed around I knew I was leavin' a lot a things they were good But I thought I'd make a break while I still could; As I looked back to wave once more To mama cryin' in the door For me and what the world might have in store For she knew I'd never be her little girl no more; But she was driftin' back to another time When she was young and hoped to find A better life than what her mama's had been But it was so they'd go of mama's hands, my mama's hands; CHORUS One old paper bag filled with hand-me-downs Plain old country girl raised on gospel sounds With only the love she gave me and pride in what I am It was hard to let go of mama's hands, my mama's hands. I thought of all the love she gave I thought of all the years she slaved To try and make this run-down shack a home A dream that really died 'fore it was born; But she pulled us thru the hardest times And made us hold our head up high A gift we carry with us all our lives For we were special in mama's eyes As I looked down the dusty road To mama and her heavy load I knew I was leavin' i'd never find again It was hard to let go of mama's hands, my mama's hands. CHORUS TAG: It was hard to let go of mama's hand, my mama's hands.
