    Lyrics

    Left at the door of a stranger
    I was left there in the middle of the night
    left by someone who couldnt keep me
    but what she did turned out just right

    in a little southern town by a river
    in a building called sheer croppers shack
    lord i was raised from a babe to manhood
    by a mama who was black

    to me she was my mama
    though blood didnt do this
    she had love that was more than sufficient
    from a mama who was black

    I never knew brothers and sisters
    I never had a dad to call my own
    but as long lord as i can remember
    black mama she made a good home

    Im sure that most folks it looked different
    when they saw me upon her old knee
    for as I grew up and we traveled around
    when they saw black mama and me

    to me she's still my mama
    I know blood I could never do that
    but I had love that was more than sufficient
    by a mama who was black

    I recieved a message of sadness
    I ran to her side right away
    but before I could speak with her
    black mama passed away

    today for me neighbors is a sad one
    as I stand with my tears running free
    her life here on earth is over
    god took black mama from mama

    to me she was my mama
    though blood didnt do that
    she had love that was more than sufficient
    from a mama who was black

    but I had love that was more than sufficient
    for a mama who was black
