Ozzy wrote this song with his guitarist, Zakk Wylde. In the liner notes for The Ozzman Cometh
, he wrote, "I had been walking around with the melody in my head for a couple of years but never got a chance to finish it until I was working with Zakk on the No More Tears
album. At that time Zakk and I were doing a lot of writing on the piano. 'Mama, I'm Coming Home' was always something I'd say on the phone to my wife near the end of a tour."
