Well, I was found in the transit lounge
Of a dirty airport town
What was I doing on the road to ruin?
Well, my mama laid me down, my mama laid me down

Around my hand was a plastic band
With a picture of my face
I was crying, left to die
In this godforsaken place, this godforsaken place

Only mama knows what she laid me down
In this godforsaken town
Well, she was running too, what she ran from
Oh, I always wondered, I never knew
Only mama knows, only mama knows

I'm passing through, I'm on my way
On the road, no ETA
I'm passing through, no fixed abode
And that is why I need to try to hold on
I've got to hold on, to hold on

Was it planned as a one night stand
Or did she leave in disgrace?
Well, I never, will I ever
See my father's face, see my father's face?

Only mama knows what she laid me down
In this godforsaken town
Well, she was running too, what she ran from
Oh, I always wondered, I never knew
Only mama knows, only mama knows

Only mama knows what she laid me down
In this godforsaken town
Well, she was running too, what she ran from
Oh, I always wondered, I never knew
Only mama knows, only mama knows

Gotta hold on, gotta hold on
You gotta hold on
