I saw my mama cryin'
I heard her weep in morn
I saw my mama cryin'
And I heard her weep in morn
And I reached right out and help her
So she would not feel so alone

I saw my mama struggle
But she never did complain
I saw my mama struggle
But she never did complain, no, no-o
When she thought I wasn't lookin'
You know her face was filled with pain, Lord

One day I found my mama
Standing in the backyard cryin'
I asked her what was wrong
She said she was getting tired and tryin'
Then she said, don't worry son, it's just a passin'
Face
She dried her eyes and smiled at me, said: it's bound
To be some better days

I saw my mama cryin'
I heard her weep in morn, yes I did
And I reached right out and help her
So she would not be so alone, lone, lone, lone

I saw her getting' older
As we move from place to place
I saw mama getting' older
As we move from place to place
And when death came 'round and took her
I saw a peaceful smile upon her face, yes I did, yes I
Did

I saw my mama cryin'
Oh Lord, I saw my mama cryin'
I saw my Mama cryin'
I was just a Boy and saw her cry, cry, cry, cry, cryin'
