I started drinking and acting crazy way back in sixty-five
Momma would pray and say he's my baby, Lord, please keep him alive
Sister came home with two little children, her man had left her alone.

Momma knew too well the hurt she was feelin'
'Cause daddy has been gone so long
We all did our part to add to her pain
We all broke her heart but she never complained.

She loved a lot in her time
She watched love grow and die on the vine
She stood in the shadows so others could shine
She loved a lot in her time.

Momma's prayers were aswered a long time ago
I ain't touched a drink in ten years
My sister Mary married to a good old boy
They don't live far from here.

Momma's work is done, now she's gone on home
The words in our heart are engraved on her stone.

She loved a lot in her time
She watched love grow and die on the vine
She stood in the shadows so others could shine
She loved a lot in her time.

She stood in the shadows so others could shine
She loved a lot in her time.

Momma, you loved a lot in your time...
