  • Halfway to crazy, not far from sane
    Oh fuckin' sick and tired of all your games
    All I ever wanted was you to take care of me

    Honor thy mother and father too
    But I know there ain't no way in hell that God mentioned you
    All I ever wanted was you to be there for me
    Ooh all ever need was you to be here for me

    This time is the last time you're gonna see us around
    Oh this was your last chance to prove you wouldn't let me down
    So go on, get going and get away from here
    All alone is how you're gonna spend the rest of your years
    'Cause I'm no farmer's daughter anymore, mommy dear.

    Remember back in high school, my brothers and me
    Willie put his head through the door to find clarity
    You'd come home with bourbon breath, Jack in the air
    And when you broke my bones I told the school I fell down the stairs
    All I ever wanted was for you to be there for me
    All I ever needed was for you to be here for me

    This time is the last time you're gonna see us around
    Oh this was your last chance to prove you wouldn't let me down
    So go on, get going and get away from here
    All alone is how you're gonna spend the rest of your years
    'Cause I'm no farmer's daughter anymore,
    No farmer's daughter anymore
    No farmer's daughter anymore, mm, mommy dear.
    Mm, mommy dear Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
