Dottie West – Mama You'd Have Been Proud Of Me lyrics

The one I love so much told me goodbye it hurt so much but I didn't cry
I let a smile hide my misery mama you'd have been proud of me
Yesterday I thought to him just like a friend smiled and asked him how he'd been
Said I hope you're happy as can be mama you'd have been proud of me
And if you could have seen me today I'd smile and laugh in my old carefree way
They thought that I was like I'd like to be mama you'd have been proud of me
Mama you'd have been proud of me
