GUEST,Mbo Mudcat Island Folk Festival (118* d) Lyr Add: MOMMA (from ELO) 15 Feb 00


She came up from the county with a smile for everyone
She left her blue horizon just to find another home
A lonely girl who'd travelled many days
A lonely heart that could not find a way.

And she said, Momma
It's a hard life now you're gone
Momma, it's so hard to carry on
And I feel I'm a fool who lost it all
You used to make it all so very clear
That life must go on though the end is near
Oh, Momma
It's a sad and lonely life.

A misty morning rider, she came wandering through the hills
A wandering soul appearing over rainy window sills
A loser in her heart, but in her face
A smile for everyone under God's grace.

Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place
Gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
A lady lost in nowhere but her stare
Leaves the world, her life to start somewhere.


--Mbo
