    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Mama (Afraid to say goodbye)

    She'd wake us up early every mornin'
    She'd help us say our prayers every night
    She was always there to help us through the hard times
    We could count on her to make everything alright

    I remember swingin' on the front porch
    Papa said there's somethin' I need to say tonight
    Mama's been sick for a long time
    Let's pray to God she can make it through the night

    Mama don't wanna say goodbye
    She said wipe those tears from your eyes
    Mama I don't wanna say goodbye
    It was written in the Heavens and the skies above
    Son I gave you birth showed you all my love
    I can't think of this life without you it's hard to try
    Mama I'm afraid to say goodbye

    Now kids I've been hangin' on a long time
    I hate to leave this world before your grown
    Remember everything that I've taught you
    Remember all the good times when I'm gone

    (repeat chorus)

    She whispered in my ear before she passed away
    Son it's time to be a man ain't nothin' left to say
    Jesus walked on water I know it's true
    When it comes time he'll call you home
    I hope your ready too

    (repeat chorus)
