Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dear, dear Mama, now that we're older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me
Verse 2
She always got me out of bed early Sunday morn'
And took me out to church where I could learn about the Lord
Mama tried to tell me how my life was gonna be
But I was young and wild, and it was hard for me to see
Verse 3
Dear Mama, now that we're older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me
Verse 4
Mama, you always taught me right from wrong when I was growin' up
And it's a pity that most people like me
Have to try everything for themselves
I realize now that you always knew just what you were talkin' about
And mama for all that hard work you did
And for the sacrifices you made for us
I just wanna say, thanks a lot
Verse 5
Dear Mama, now that we'reolder
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you're a trooper, Mama you're a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me
Mama, you mean a lot to me
