Story

 

a song about two girls

one of them being my mum

 

 

Lyrics

mama said don't you bet on the horses

always make the best of what you got

mend your fences make no pretenses

never break a woman's heart

mama said don't you gamble at dice

always put the horse before the cart

respect yourself but above all else

never break a woman's heart

she said never break a woman's heart

 

young christine she was just eighteen

told her leave your papa's home

come with me there's so much to see

let's go ramble and roam

we went west we heard that's the best

i was just crazy 'bout the girl

i loved her so and with her i'd go

clean around the whole free world

 

mama said...

 

we came to ground far from our home town

found a little country farm

a simple home but it was all our own

full of love and low rent charm

we had a life just like a husband and wife

i never thought to go or stray

we stayed together through all that weather

nothing would get in our way

 

mama said...

 

young christine barely made nineteen

i kind of lost my mind

i ran away and still today

i think i must have been blind

i broke her heart and the saddest part

i didn't even think twice

i kept my word on every thing i heard

but the best part of mama's advice
