Joshua White – Prodigal Son lyrics

I broke my mother's heart, Lord when I runned away
I broke my mother's heart, Lord when I runned away
She said he's a hard-headed child, I know you is gone astray

My mother said son oh son, way you carryin' on is a low down dirty sin
My mother said son, way you carryin' on is a low down sin
You done run away and left me, but you comin' back home again

Had to pawn my shoes and clothes, sleep out in the park every night
Pawned my shoes and clothes, sleep in the park each and every night
I done laid around and caught T. B., I'm drawed up just like a piece of trite

I'm coming home mother, please don't cry when you see me
I'm coming home mother, when you see me don't you cry
I was a hard-headed boy, now your son's coming home to die

Ooh mother, oh mother, remember I'm your son
Cryin' mother, oh mother, remember that I'm your child
Mama please forgive me, all the things that I have done
