A year ago today
I was stood beside you outside the courtroom
And when they called your name
You thought I'd be ashamed
But I stood taller
For you've already served
All that you've deserved
Too many lifetimes over
And when they called your name
You thought I'd be ashamed
But I stood taller

Money always flowed from the pockets of your clothes to the hands of another
Copper, silver, gold
A greater love was sold down the Craig Matty River
He promised you the world
You let your hair fall right down to your shoulders
He promised you the world
And now that same old world is just getting smaller

Oh, mama
I told you all the time
Please be careful with your love
I told you all the time
Oh, mama
I told you all the time
Please be careful who you love
I told you all the time

A year ago today
I was stood beside you outside the courtroom
And when they called your name
You thought I'd be ashamed
But I stood taller
And I watched as your pride
From your nose and eyes
Came out a flowing
And when they called your name
You thought I'd be ashamed
But I stood taller

Oh, mama
I told you all the time
Please be careful with your love
I told you all the time
Oh, mama
I told you all the time
Please be careful who you love
I told you all the time
Oh, mama
I told you all the time
Please be careful with your love
I told you all the time

Mama
Love
