I remember when I was five
Runnin’ round, happy just to be alive
I’d cry whenever you left
Thought you weren’t coming back
See, Daddy wasn’t there

I remember when I was ten
Hiding in the kitchen just to hear you sing
You’d smile when I sang along
Belting out the new Al Green song

I’m so thankful God sent me to you
Times were tough but you pulled us right through
And I think about you every day, every day
And, Momma, straight from my heart
I wanna thank you

I remember when I was sixteen
Dodging trouble, chasing dreams
You were there to cheer me on
Pick me up when everything went wrong

I’m so thankful God sent me to you
Times were tough but you pulled us right through
And I think about you every day, every day
And, Momma, straight from my heart
I wanna thank you

Here I am a man all grown
Settled down, got some kids of my own
Sometimes I remind me of you
Puts a smile on my face when I do

I’m so thankful God sent me to you
Times were tough but you pulled us right through
And I think about you every day, every day
And, Momma, straight from my heart
I wanna thank you
And, Momma, straight from my heart
I wanna thank you
Thank you, thank you, Momma
