Ruthie Foster – Mama Said lyrics

Woah mama said girl
You better learn how to pray
Oh you got a soul
A soul to save
Girl you've been looking
For an education
Child you better fall on your knees
Before you fall in the wrong direction

Ooh many a trials I have known
Tryin' to give my children
A happy home
In times of trouble
And tears from worry
Woah I'm trying to keep my head held
Teach my feet not to be in such a hurry

Oh it was a cold February morn'
This Texas baby girl was born
I prayed for her soul
To sing a righteous song
And when my head grows cold Lord
Keep her in a light that's strong

Mama said girl
You better learn how to pray
Oh you got a soul
A soul to save
Child you been lookin'
For an education
(Ain't nothin' wrong with that now)

Girl you better fall on your knees
Before you fall in the wrong direction
Girl you better fall on your knees
Before you fall in the wrong direction
