    Lyrics

    Mother don't worry, I killed the last snake that lived in the creek bed
    Mother don't worry, I've got some money I saved for the weekend
    Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me?
    Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body?

    So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
    Sons are like birds, flying upward over the mountain

    Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
    Mother I lost it, all of the fear of the Lord I was given
    Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
    Mother forgive me, I sold your car for the shoes that I gave you

    So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
    Sons could be birds, taken broken up to the mountain

    Mother don't worry, I've got a coat and some friends on the corner
    Mother don't worry, she's got a garden we're planting together
    Mother remember the night that the dog got her pups in the pantry?
    Blood on the floor, fleas on their paws,
    And you cried 'til the morning

    So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
    Sons are like birds, flying always over the mountain
