I got a call to say my mamma was dying
I got a call to say my mamma was dying
I caught the first train home my head was frying

When I got there folks had gathered around
When I got there folks had gathered around
Her eyes were set and her face was full of frowns

She wasn't dead but she was slowly dying
She wasn't dead but she was slowly dying
I think of her can't stop myself from crying

I followed mamma to the burying ground
I followed mamma to the burying ground
I watched them put her in the fucking ground

That was the last time I saw my mammas face
That was the last time I saw my mammas face
That was the last time I saw my mammas face

I wish that I could take her fucking place
I wish that I could take her fucking place
I wish that I could take her fucking place
