lyrics

Mama Dear

Come get me, mama, come and take me home
Come get me, mama dear
Come get me, mama, take these weary bones
Far away from here

Lead me to your waters, show me where they go
A fountain flowing cool and clear
Lead me to your waters, quench this thirsty soul
And wash away these tears

For I have lost my patience and all my hope is gone
I have seen them disappear
All that I have left is the love in me you’ve sown
But there's not much left, I fear

So come and get me, mama, come and take me home
Come get me, mama dear
Come get me, mama, take these weary bones
Far away from here

I have seen destruction and I have seen its toll
I have seen the works of men
I have seen their wealth, their power and control
And I don't want no part of them

These men have crushed my spirit, these men have crushed my soul
These men have made my hands to sin
They’ve stripped me of my conscience and left this empty whole
This darkness deep within

So come and get me, mama, come and take me home
Come and get me, mama dear
Come and get me, mama, take these weary bones
Far away from here

Can there be forgiveness, can I be wiped clean
Can I be myself again
Can there be redemption after all the things
I’ve seen and where I’ve been

So come and get me, mama, come and take me home
Come and get me, mama dear
Come and get me, mama, take these weary bones
Far away from here
