Shenandoah – Mama Knows lyrics
Me and Jimmy Crowder and a single cagarette
Crouched down in a stall out in the barn
Three puffs later we were sick as we could get
Prayin we'd get better before we got home
She saw me comin through the back door screen
I knew the minute that she looked at me

Chorus
Mama knows, Mama knows
Sometimes I think she's got a window to my soul
Mama knows, Mama knows
Even when I think it doesn't show
Mama knows

Me and Becky Johnson ankle-deep in ocean waves
Pants rolled up and hearts out on our sleeves
Both needin more than either one of us could get
That first love left the sweetest memory
Fifteen and shy, didn't tell a soul
How is it Mama never has to be told

Chorus

I wasn't home when Mama passed away
I didn't get to say I love you
But I've got this feelin

Chorus until end

    Yes, Jimmy Crowder was my father who grew up in Chester, SC. His dad was a dentist and also had a farm on the outskirts of town. His dad’s most passionate thing we’re walking horses. The opening line refers to to a gore stall scene. I once asked Becky Johnson about the song and she absolutely refused to comment.
