  • Your mama
    Came from Carolina
    Settled down this boy from Georgia
    And boy, she sure is gorgeous, ain't she son?
    Your mama
    Got the patience of an angel
    Quick to love and slow to anger
    Yeah, we both ought to thank her, we're the lucky ones
    Your better half is her not me
    And praise the Lord she'll always be

    The one that brought you in the world, you'll always be her baby
    The one that makes it all okay when everything goes crazy
    You go be a wide eyed, wild child ridin' fast and high like me
    Life's gonna fly by, I hope that you realize
    Just how blessed we are that she's
    Your mama

    Gonna be there nights that I can't
    Sing a lullaby to your pain
    And teach you things that I don't even know
    Your mama
    She'll hold your world together
    Be there to make you better
    She'll live in you forever even when you go (even when you go)

    The one that brought you in the world, you'll always be her baby
    The one that makes it all okay when everything goes crazy
    You go be a wide eyed, wild child ridin' fast and high like me
    Life's gonna fly by, I hope that you realize
    Just how blessed we are that she's

    Your mama, she's somethin'
    Your mama, what a woman
    Your mama, there ain't nothing like
    Your mama, boy, your mama, yeah

    (Came from Carolina)
    (Settled down this boy from Georgia)

    If you ever meet you one like her and fall in love
    Hold her tight and treat her right and thank the man above
    That she reminds you of

    The one that brought you in the world, you'll always be her baby
    The one that makes it all okay when everything goes crazy
    You gon' be a wide eyed, wild child ridin' fast and high like me
    Life's gonna fly by, I hope that you realize
    Just how blessed we are that she's

    Your mama, she's something
    Your mama, what a woman
    Your mama, there ain't nothing like
    Your mama, boy, your mama

    Your mama
    (Came from Carolina)
    (Settled down this boy from Georgia) your mama
