Mama Knew Love|Anthony Hamilton|Lyrics

I know you love me
I can tell by the way that you kiss me
Tight when you hug me
Took me to school the very first day
Gave me a piece of butterscotch
Sent me on my way
I know it's frightening
I could tell by the pain in your eyes when the rent was late again
To strong to fold
Being on your own
Lord bless her soul, mama knows love

[Chorus]
Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the end meet
Mom swear you never have to worry again

Up bright and early
Scrambled eggs
Swellin' in ya legs
Bills on the bed
Still you managed to show me a smile
Then walk to work about two or three miles
Mom I'm gonna struggle witcha
I'm gonna help you see the bigger picture
You gave me something no one could take away
You made it so easy to say...I love ya mama

Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the ends meet
Mom swear you never have to worry again, no no no

Mama knew love
She gave me love
Crazy love
So much love
Mama knew love
She gave me love
Crazy love
So much love

[Chorus: x3]
