V1

Daddy was a preacher, was a real good man
Mama loved him to the bone, more than anyone can
Had a little wedding back in ’73
By and by baby made three
Had a little money and a beat up truck
Went up to the country just to try their luck

CHORUS

There was a whole lotta nothing in that one room shack
And all the money in the world could never get that back
There whole lotta loving in his eyes
And that’s why
Mama cries

V2

Oh that winter was a teacher but they still had dreams
Of a little honeymoon down in New Orleans
But the snow kept coming and the roads got bad
Daddy got tired and Mama got sad
The road took Daddy away that night
Mama said she saw the angels guide him toward the light

CHORUS

There was a whole lotta nothing in that one room shack
And all the money in the world could never get that back
There whole lotta loving in his eyes
And that’s why
Mama cries

BRIDGE

Out on that lonesome stretch of highway
Out past the hurtin’ side of town
Out on that lonesome stretch of highway
That old Chevy she broke down…

CHORUS

There was a whole lotta nothing in that one room shack
And all the money in the world could never get that back
There whole lotta loving in his eyes
And that’s why
Mama cries
Mama cries
Mama cries
Mama cries….
