    A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labor camp
    Stand 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
    But 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 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 she wanted
    Yes I still recall my mama's hungry eyes
