Sadie Submit Correct Lyrics

In a world like today
It's rare to see young mothers like the ones
Who were around when I grew up
But they live on in memory to quite a few of us
And this song is dedicated to those of us
Who cherish that memory

Early one Sunday morning
Breakfast was on the table
There was no time to eat
She said to me, boy, hurry to Sunday school

Filled with her load of glory
We learned the Holy story
She'll always have her dreams
Despite the things this troubled world can bring

Oh, Sadie, don't you know we love you, sweet Sadie?
We love you, Sadie
(There's no one above you, sweet Sadie)

Well, well, well
(Livin' in the past)
Some times it seems so funny
No money will turn your life around

Sweeter than cotton candy
Stronger than papas old brandy
Always that needed smile, once in awhile
She would break down and cry

Some times she'd seem so happy, yeah, yeah
Just being with us and daddy
Standing the worst of times, breaking the binds
With just a simple song

Oh, Sadie, baby
(don't you know we love you, sweet Sadie?)
Oh, darlin'
(There's no one above you, sweet Sadie)
Sadie,
(Livin' in the past)

Ever since the beginnin'
It's her her love that was always winnin', oh
(Sadie)
Sadie, baby
(Don't you know we love you, sweet Sadie?)

Well, we love you, Sadie
(There's no one above you, sweet Sadie)
(Livin' in the past)

If there's a heaven up above
I know that she's teachin' angels how to love
(Sadie)
Mama, mama, mama, Sadie

(Don't you know we love you, sweet Sadie?)
My Sadie, may no
(There's no one above you, sweet Sadie)
Well, well, well
(Livin' in the past)

Isn't it funny that in the end
It's just the love that you gave us, oh Sadie
It's a mean world without you, yeah
(Don't you know we love you, Sweet Sadie)

I love you, mama
(There's no one above you, sweet Sadie)
I miss you, mama, yeah
(Livin' in the past)
Bring me a [Incomprehensible]

Sometimes I'm feelin' so all alone
But I know I've to carry on
(Sadie)
It's a mean world without you
(Sadie)

But I know I got to go on
(My sweet Sadie)
It's what you wanted for me
(Livin' in the past)
Sweet Sadie, oh
(Sadie)

Oh
(Sadie)
I love u mama
(Sweet Sadie)
I can't forget your love
(Livin' in the past)
