Sadie Lyrics

Spoken Intro:
(In a world like today
Its a rare occasion to be able
To see young mothers like the ones
That were around when I grew up
But they live on in memory
To quite a few of us
And this song is dedicated
To those who cherish that memory)

Early one Sunday morning
Breakfast was on the table
There was no time to eat
She said to me, boy, hurry to Sunday school

Filled with her load of glory
We learned the holy story
She'll always have her dreams
Despite the things this troubled world can bring

Oh, Sadie
Don't you know we love you
Sweet Sadie
We love you Sadie
Place no one above you

Sweet Sadie (Well, well, well)
Living in the past
Some times it seems so funny
Mo money will turn your life around

Sweeter than cotton candy
Stronger than papee's old brandy
Always that needed smile
Once in awhile she would break down and cry

Some times shed be so happy
Just being with us and daddy
Standing the worst of times
Breaking the binds
With just a simple song

Oh, Sadie (Sadie) Mae
(Don't you know we love you sweet Sadie)
Ah darlin'
(Place no one above you sweet Sadie)

Sadie Mae (You're livin' in the past)
Ever since the beginnin'
It's a love that was always winnin',

Oh
(Sadie)
Sadie Mae
(Don't you know we love you sweet Sadie)
Well, we love ya Sadie
(Place no one above you sweet Sadie)

(Livin' in the past)
If there's a heaven up above
I know she's teaching angels how to love

(Sadie)
Sadie Mae
(Don't you know we love you sweet Sadie)
My Sadie Mae oh . . .
(Place no one above you sweet Sadie)

Well, well, well
(Livin' in the past)
Ain't it funny that in the end
It's the love, that you gave us all

(Sadie)
It's a meaner world without you, yeah
(Don't you know we love you sweet Sadie)
I love you momma
(Place no one above you sweet Sadie)

I miss you momma, yeah
(Livin' in the past)
Bring (?)
(Livin' in the past)

Sometime I feel so all alone
(Do do do, do do do)
But I know I've got to carry on
(Do do do, do do do)

(Sadie)
It's a mean world without you
(Sadie)
But I know I gotta go on
(Sweet Sadie)
It's what you wanted for me
(Livin' in the past)
Sweet Sadie
(Do do do, do do do)

Oh . . .
(Sadie)
Oh oh oh
(Sadie)
I love you momma . . .
(Sweet Sadie)
I can't forget you now . . .
(Livin' in the past) . . .
(Do do do, do do do)
(Sadie . . . . )
