    Lyrics

    (For you I am praying
    For you I am praying
    For you I am oraying
    I'm praying for you.)

    Daddy never went to church on Sunday
    He said that's one thing I'll never do
    Mama never gave up she said one day
    He'll be sitting here beside me and you.

    I can still hear Mama softly talking
    Her tears falling on her folded hands
    So that Easter Sunday Daddy walked in
    That's when I began to understand.

    Chorus:
    When Mama prayed, good things happened
    When Mama prayed, lives were changed
    Not much more than five foot tall
    But mountains big and small
    Crumbled all away when Mama prayed.

    Seventeen and wild I hit the bottom
    Doing anything I dang well please
    Burning down life's highway at full throttle
    While Mama burned a candle on her knees.

    Then one night I came home half sober
    I saw Mama kneeling in the den
    As I listened, she and Jesus talked it over
    And I knew my restless days were 'bout to end.

    Chorus:
    When Mama prayed, good things happened
    When Mama prayed, lives were changed
    Not much more than five foot tall
    But mountains big and small
    Crumbled all away when Mama prayed.

    It isn't like every one of them got answered
    But the times they weren't seems to me were rare
    You almost felt sorry for the devil
    'Cause heaven knows he didn't have prayer, when mama prayed.

    --- Instrumetal ---

    Not much more than five foot tall
    But mountains big and small
    Crumbled all away when Mama prayed.

    Crumbled all away when Mama prayed...
