Momma loved us, every one
Every daughter, every son
She gave herself so happily
That's just the way she was, you see

From dawn to dark she'd find a chore
And work it 'til it was no more
And every day until she died
In the evening, momma cried

Momma cried
There was mourning in the evening
And momma cried
'Cause her little girl was gone

Her little girl was snatched away
She was there and then just gone one day
And momma blamed herself, I'd say
But all of us had debts to pay

Momma cried
There was mourning in the evening
And momma cried
'Cause her little girl was gone

I did my best to cheer her pride
That day that something broke inside
I swore I'd find her and I tried
In the evening, momma cried

Momma cried
There was mourning in the evening
And momma cried
'Cause her little girl was gone

Momma cried
There was mourning in the evening
And momma cried
'Cause her little girl was gone
