momma told me about you

momma said that she loved me
when she tucked me into bed
she sang me songs about Jesus
planted seeds of faith in my head momma said don’t be charmed
by the bounce of golden curls
said her boy wasn’t meant
to settle for just any girl

my momma told me you’d come along some day
said if I was patient, I’d know right away
that love had come, and come to stay
momma told me, told me about you

momma said things that don’t last
might not be real to begin
said I should know the difference
before I decide who to run with momma said I could live at peace
as much as it depends on me
said I would discover love
as long as I let it discover me

my momma told me you’d come along some day
said if I was patient, I’d know right away
that love had come, and come to stay
momma told me, told me about you

momma said I should try to learn
how to find all the right keys
that will let you know I love you
do the things that will please momma said that I could sow
anything I want to reap
said that when I found treasure
I should make it one I keep

my momma told me you’d come along some day
said if I was patient, I’d know right away
that love had come, and come to stay
momma told me, told me about you
