Lyrics:

She was just a mother
She was just a mother a mother
Tryin to find her way on
She was a mothera mother a woman who lost her love

I was just a baby child when my papa he drowned
He fell to the bottom of the ocean
His body they never found
She was left with 4 children to raise all on her own
She hoped she prayed she waited that one he'd return
Alone alone and one day her hope faded alone alone
How would she carry on
She was just a mother a mother tryin to find her way on
She was just a mother a mother tryin to carry the load

She looked for a man to rescue her Fate bought her a wealthy doctor
He said he take good care of her and give her children a better world
And Days were long , when the doctor came home he never stayed sober
When he drank he was poisonous All of his promises turned to lies
Oh lies all of his promises turned to lies heya heya
and the pain grew inside
Ooh
She was just a mother a mother tryin to ease her pain
She was just a mother a mother lookin for a better way

He came home from work one day Viscious words turned to violent games
He dragged her across the floor then he beat her face some more
I stood crying terrified My big brothers paralysed
He'd never hit her like this before and she was curled up by the door
Alone alone we couldn't help her
Heya heya and the pain grew some more

She was just a mother a mother tryin to find her way
She was just a mother a mother tryin to ease her pain

She found the courage to leave him
But she was addicted to the money
It became her only friend
To ease her pain she'd spend and spend and spend
When her credit cards ran out
She cried out loud
Oh bring me another wealthy man
And bring my troubles to an end
Heya heya bring my troubles to an end
Heya heya and the cycle begins again

a mother a mother lookin for a better way
A mother a mother tryin to ease her pain
She was just a mother a mother lookin for a way home
She was just a mother a mother a woman who lost her love
Heya heya heya heya
