I grew up just west of the tracks
Holdin' me to hold you back
around your door just callin' out my name

She said "son why don't you go outside
I got a man comin' over tonight"
seventh one in seven days

So I go down to the parkin' lot
to hang around with all my friends
and roam the streets 'til dawn breaks again

I come in at 5 a.m. and she is waiting for me
she said "where have you been?" i said "i was out"
she said "she said you're no good 'cause you're runnin' without love"

'Cause I'm goin' straight to hell
yeah, just like my momma said
'cause I'm goin' straight to hell

A black widow and the lady's man
we met down the laundry mat
and tried to make me understand

The neighbors were all in a stir
about what they might have heard
and runnin' down they shouted out it seems

Well next door a girl she lives
about the same age as me
and asked me to come upstairs for a see

And just then her mother bursts in
she said "you're that son of a bitch in the wind,
get out of my house and hit the road"
and I kept fallin' like a rollin' stone

'Cause I'm goin' straight to hell
yeah, just like my momma said
'cause I'm goin' straight to hell

I'm goin' straight to hell
yeah, just like my momma said
'cause I'm goin' straight to hell

The stars came out and they warmed me so
as I walked on down the road
50 bucks and a suitcase steered me clear

She took my hand as we walked into the sun
A new day's promise had begun
"We'll make it alone whether you like it or not"
I turned around and shouted "HELP ME MOTHER!"

'Cause I'm goin' straight to hell
yeah, just like my momma said
'cause I'm goin' straight to hell

'Cause I'm goin' straight to hell
yeah, just like my momma said
'cause I'm goin' straight...to hell
