Momma - Bob Seger

I was the baby brother,

5


1b
I was the quiet other,

5


23
And i remember mother so well.

5


1f
I was the little stranger,

5


1b
I never was in danger,

5


28
I could 'a had a manger, pray tell.

5


22
Oh, how she could control me,

5


23
When i was bad she'd scold me,

5


24
Sometimes she wouldn't hold me,

5


11
And i'd cry.

5


28
But momma she never told me a lie -

5


23
Momma she never told me a lie.

5


5


5


21
I used to stay out evenings,

5


25
Stay out too late some evenings,

5


27
And momma would be there seething,

5


f
Back home.

5


1f
Momma, she sat and waited,

5


20
Sat in the hall and waited,

5


1d
Now i know why she hated

5


10
That phone.

5


28
And when i'd come in she'd grab me,

5


24
Right by the arm she'd grab me,

5


29
Lord, when she was finished with me,

5


1d
I'd cry ... oh, i'd cry.

5


27
But momma she never told me a lie.

5


23
Momma she never told me a lie.

5


5


5


20
Momma she could control me,

5


27
And when i was bad she'd scold me,

5


24
Sometimes she wouldn't hold me,

5


11
And i'd cry.

5


23
Momma she never told me a lie.

5


29
Momma she never promised me the sky.

5


23
Momma she never told me a lie.
