Won't you take me home to mama she loves me and she'll keep me safe and warm
All I ask is take me home to mama please take me home to mama's arms

Oh greyhound bus I bet she could never guess
Where I got the money to buy this ticket home
Well I tell you after years of tears and hard work today I made it
I reached bottom I've begged on the street that's how I got it
Won't you take me home to mama...

I've lost many things in my life but today I lost my pride
So ol' greyhound take me home to mama I need some love inside
All I ask is take me home to mama please take me home to mama's arms
