Description: Mama, Won't You Carry - for Mother's Day, 2016 (BMI), and for Dorothy Irene Eisenbach Redding, wherever you are.

VERSE:
Mama, won't you carry
Me back where I belong
I've had all I can take of this world for too long
All these crowded cities
Where everyone's alone
Mama won't you carry me back home

VERSE:
Hey mama
Iíve been thinking Ďbout all you said
And Iím sorry
That I let you down in my head
I step up to that moment
And everything goes red
Then I turn and run away instead

BRIDGE:
Our lives are just scenes
From the Gypsy's dreams
On her bed of sage
Where the moon whispers secrets to the seas
She's deciphered the laws
In the furious stars
Then when she awakes
Her stories turn into you and me

VERSE:
Mama,
I wonít write these letters any more
Rather
Tell you face to face
What I saw
You warned me itíd burn me
But I had to know for sure
Soon I will see you at your door

BRIDGE:
Our lives are just scenes
From the Gypsy's dreams
On her bed of sage
Where the moon whispers secrets to the seas
She's deciphered the laws
In the furious stars
Then when she awakes
Her stories turn into you and me

VERSE:
Mama,
Iíll be coming home pretty soon
Donít you bother and donít worry
I love you
Never
Could another
Know me like you do
So, yeah, Iím coming home to you
