    Lyrics

    I can't sell my mama short on loving me
    I guess that's why she let me go so far
    Mama try to stopped me short of stealing
    I guess that's why I had to steal that car

    She told me not to smoke it
    But I did and it took me far away
    And I turned out to be
    The only hell my mama ever raised

    Well, I rolled into Atlanta, stolen tags and almost out of gas
    I had to get some money, and lately I'd learned how to get it fast
    Those neon lights was calling me and somehow I just had to get downtown
    So I reached into the glove box, another liquor store went down

    And I sing 'Precious memories', take me back to the good ol' days
    Let me hear mama singing, 'Rock of ages' cleft for me
    She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways
    And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised

    When they put them handcuffs on me, Lord how I fought to resist
    But agent clamped 'em tighter, 'til that metal bit into my wrist
    They took my belt and my billfold,
    my fingerprints, and the profile of my face
    Then they locked away the only hell my mama ever ever raised

    And I sing 'Precious memories', take me back to the good ol' days
    Let me hear mama singing, 'Rock of ages' cleft for me
    She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways
    And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised
    She tried to turn me on to Jesus, but I turned on to the devil's ways
    And I turned out to be the only hell my mama ever raised
