    "Hungry Eyes" Lyrics

    Jack Greene

    A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labor camp stands
    out in this mem'ry I revive
    Cause my daddy raised a family there with two hard working hands
    And tried to feed my mama's hungry eyes
    He dreamed of something better and my mama's faith was strong
    And us kids were just too young to realize
    That another class of people put us somewhere just below
    One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes
    Mama never had the luxuries she wanted but it wasn't
    cause my daddy didn't try
    She only wanted things she really needed
    One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes

    I remember my daddy praying for a better way of life
    But I don't recall a change of any size
    Just a little loss of courage as their age began to show
    And more sadness in my mama's hungry eyes
    Mama never had the luxuries...
    Oh I still recall my mama's hungry eyes
