A SONG FOR MAMA  (J.L. Smith, J.P Hougnon)

I've trucked o'er this country with its mountains and valleys       
From border to border I've roamed
A solitary man with my foot on the throttle
pushin' this ol' diesel along

Sometimes I'd get lonely and my thoughts turned to home
so I'd stop and give Mama a call
She'd say her love was with me and it always would be
Then I wouldn't feel so alone

But then Mama died one Tuesday and now I feel empty
like a drifter who's lost and alone
A gear jammin' man who's now pushin' forty
I've always been rollin' and gone

No roots have I put down, no house I call mine
and no wife waiting for me at home
Just me and my rig on this endless old highway
I guess we must both carry on

But the miles they grow longer and a sadness grows stronger
and my days all seem cloudy and long
I miss how she told me live life as it should be
Be happy wherever you roam

(repeat chorus)

(repeat first verse)
