ANTHONY HAMILTON


Mama Knew Love Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen
We got Anthony Hamilton in the house tonight
He just came from off tour
He got a little some he wanna say

I know you love me
I can tell by the way that you kiss me tight, when you hug me
Took me to school the very first day
You gave me a piece of butterscotch sent me on my way

I know its frightenin' now
I can tell by the pain in your eyes when the rent was late again
Too strong to fold, bein' on your own
Lord bless her soul

Mama knows love
Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the ends meet
Mom I swear you never have to worry again

Up bright and early
Scrambled eggs, swellin' in your legs, bills on the bed
Still you managed to show me a smile
Then walk to work about two or three miles

Mom I'm gonna struggle with ya
I'm gonna help you see the bigger picture
You gave me something no one can take away
You make it so easy to say

I love you mama
Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the ends meet
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
No, no, no

Mama knew love, she gave me love
Crazy love, so much love
Mama knew love, she gave me love
Crazy love, so much love

Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the ends meet
Mom I swear you never have to worry again

Mama knew love like the back roads
Used to fall asleep daily in her work clothes
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
Mama knew love like the back streets
Used to wipe pee just to make the ends meet
Mom I swear you never have to worry again
