Hey, Pretty Mamma

Lyrics

Hey there pretty mama 

Tell me what do you know?

I'm standing here right next to you 

And I'm feeling so alone

 

The winter's cold and slick honey

And summer's thick as thieves

And sometimes our love is angry 

And sometimes it weaves

But there ain't nowhere to hide 

When all your troubles are inside

And darling your my girl

And you know that I'm your guy 

 

But, if we had the time

Maggie would you call for me?

When it's dark as night

Tell me what do you see?

Are we running out of chances to go on?

 

You can wrestle through your memories

And wrestle through the weeds

Take your share of chances 

And do your share of deeds

But that monkey on your back 

It ain't cutting you no slack 

And it's hared to tell your future

When you don't know where your at

 

If we had the time

Maggie would you call for me?

When it's dark as night

Tell me what do you see?

Are we running out of chances to go on?

 

I can't think of any other place I'd rather be

I've seen better days and this might be the last I see

So kick off your shoes honey

And relax your little feet

I'll see you in the morning

It's been a long hard week
