Verse 1:
'89, we say hello. He says goodbye
Daddy left when I was four, and made us cry
You and I, Clyde and Bonnie of modern day
Drama came, and friends left, but momma stayed
Through everything, all the fights and all the pain
All the change/I hate my dad, don't want his name
Told my mom that I'm a Waln, didn't understand
All the things going on between her and my dad

But I was stubborn
I know that I made it hard
You always said
"Son, I know you're gonna make it far."
Believe that, I need that in dark times
I think of what you did for me and my heart shines
You took my hand up this mountain
Made it your climb
So when I shine, mom you shine

Yeah, single mother with the odds stacked
Raised a king, one day he'll bring it all back

Chorus:
Lived all my life, just me and you
Times got tough and you seen me through
I ain't have a dad
We ain't have a plan
Raised by a woman who made me a man
I know I ain't home and your boy is grown
I need you to know that you're not alone
I can let it rock, you will be my stone
Forever in my heart you will be my stone
My stone x9

Verse 2:
You always gave me what I wanted
Somehow always found the time
Single parent, it's apparent
That you stayed up on your grind

I remember you would put me first
It was hard but you said
"Son, it could be worse."
You were right, it's funny
Looking back days were sunny
You kept me smiling even though
We didn't have the money
That other families did
Somehow you made it happen
I promise Mom that I'm gonna do it
With this rapping

You took me everywhere
My cap and my backpack
Twenty years later now
I'm rapping in snapbacks
Rocking the Long Braid
We came a long way
You kept me on the Red Road
Away from the wrong way
Forever I'm grateful
For the life you gave
Tears that we cried
Sacrifice you made

Yeah, single mother with the odds stacked
Raised a king, one day I'll bring it all back

{​Chorus:}​
