Текст песни "Mama, Why?"
Loretta Lynn & Ernest Ray
(Oh mama why did God take my daddy?)
('Cause I'd been good just like he said to be)
(I heard daddy pray, dear Lord don't take me from them)
(Oh mama, why did God take him from me?)
Come here son, you've asked mama somethin'
That's even hard for me to understand
For there's one thing I do know
Daddy wouldn't wanna see those tears in the eyes of this big man.
So stop cryin' now and listen real careful
To every word mama has to say, you see son
God picks the sweetest most beautiful flowers that grow
And he makes them the brightest shiniest stars that glow.
Now daddy talked with the Lord every day
And daddy and God'll be real close
So let's just say it seems that God takes
The ones he loves the most.
(Oh mama, why did God take my daddy?)
Son you haven't heard a word that mama said
So come on now let's say your prayers
And mama tuck you in bed.
And we must have questioned God
'Cause he already has everything planned
And honey daddy can't ever come back to us
Though we can go to him.
(Oh mama, why did God take him from me?)...
