  • As I drive towards home I picture Momma waiting
    She’ll be glad to see her big time boy come home
    She gets little in return for all she’s given
    And I’m all she’s got to love since Daddy’s gone.

    Now I’m forty miles away and I’m still wonderin’
    Why I ever told her I was doing well
    When I first went wrong I should have turned to Momma
    But it’s hard to get back up once you have fell.

    It’s the last time I’ll see flowers in the morning
    It’s the last time I’ll hear robins in the spring
    It’s the last time I’ll feel Momma’s arms around me
    It’s the last chance here on earth I’ll have to sing.

    As I drive away behind me Momma’s waving
    To a son who’s all he’d ever hoped he’d be
    Now she’ll say her final prayers, “And go, meet Daddy”
    And I’m glad she’s only seen one side of me.

    Today makes thirteen years in Coleman’s Federal Prison
    And tonight I’ll walk my last few steps alone
    But I can’t help thinking somewhere Momma’s waiting
    Once again to see her big time boy come home.
