The Man Who Made My Mama Cry Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

All you've ever been
Is a call every now and then
From some old pay phone

After you'd hang up
Lord, she'd take it rough
And wanna be alone

I know you from the picture
Of you and her together
Taken at a fair in '68

You've gotta lot of nerve to think
You can walk right in
And take her place

To me you're just the man
Who made my Mama cry
Someone who broke
A lot of promises in his time

All I know about you
Is how to live without you
I can see
I have your eyes

But all you've ever been
Is the man
Who made my Mama cry

When she took off my training wheels
Held a job and cooked the meals
Where were you?

Don't even start
She did her part
And yours too

Now you're back to play the part
That was missin' in my heart
When I was growin' up

Well, you're a little late
I don't have the time
To waste on catchin' up

To me you're just the man
Who made my Mama cry
Someone who broke
A lot of promises in his time

All I know about you
Is how to live without you
I can see
I have your eyes

But all you've ever been
Is the man
Who made my Mama cry

All I know about you
Is how to live without you
I can see
I have your eyes

But all you've ever been
Is the man
Who made my Mama cry
