Momma Dear
MOMMA DEAR ┬ęPat Flanakin
Words & Music by Pat Flanakin

When I was a little boy
Just my momma's pride and joy
How her golden touch
So easily calmed my fears

From the shadows in the night
To the thunder from the sky
She'd always come
To wash away my tears

CHORUS A Oh but gone now the innocence
I used to feel
And I don't remember
Not the passing years
For they came so suddenly
What's become of me
Momma dear

Now I'm standing on my own
On this sidewalk far from home
Watching all the strangers
Passing by

It's a sea of empty faces
Rushing home to different places
Where their children wait to greet them
With a smile

CHORUS B Oh but gone now the childhood games
I used to play
And I don't remember
Not the children's names
For they fade so easily
What's become of me
Momma dear
