She'd wake us up early every mornin'
She'd help us say our prayers every night
She was always there to help us through the hard times
We could count on her to make everything alright

I remember swingin' on the front porch
Papa said, "There's somethin' I need to say tonight
Mama's been sick for a long time
Let's pray to God she can make it through tonight"

Mama, don't wanna say goodbye
She said wipe those tears from your eyes
Mama, I don't wanna say goodbye
It was written in the Heavens and the skies above
Son I gave you birth, showed you all my love
I can't think of this life without you, it's hard to try
Oh, mama, I'm afraid to say goodbye

"Now kids I've been hangin' on a long time
I hate to leave this world before you're grown
Remember everything that I taught you
Remember all the good times when I'm gone

Oh, mama, don't wanna say goodbye
She said "Wipe those tears from your eyes"
Mama, I don't wanna say goodbye
It was written in the Heavens and the skies above
"Son I gave you birth, showed you all my love"
I can't think of this life without you but it's hard to try
Oh, mama, I'm afraid to say goodbye

She whispered in my ear before she passed away
"Son it's time to be a man ain't nothin' left to say
Jesus walked on water, I know it's true
When it comes time he'll call you home, I hope you're ready too"

Mama don't wanna say goodbye
Wipe those tears from your eyes
Mama, I don't wanna say goodbye
Written in the Heavens and the skies above
Gave you birth, showed you all my love
Can't think of this life without you but it's hard to try
Oh, mama, I'm afraid to say goodbye, oh, mama

Oh, mama, I don't wanna say goodbye, oh
