Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed lyrics

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?
Was it the pigs in gray suits persecuting you?
Uncivil servants, unconcerned that's how they frighten you?
Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you

Mama, why did you do it?
Mama, who drove you to it?
Spare, priggish money-men who scared the life out of you
Bailiffs with bad breath, I will slit their throats for you, oh
Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you, Mama

Life is nothing much to lose
It's just so lonely here without you so
We're gonna run to you
We're gonna come to you
We're gonna lie down beside you, Mama

We're gonna be with you
We're gonna join you
We're gonna lie down beside you, Mama

And we will be safe and sheltered in our graves
We'll come before you and we will kiss you
By way of one final hug, Mama, oh
