I went all the places Mama told me not to go
And I did all the things that Mama told me not to do
And I found all the women you’d be crazy to take home
But I’m gonna make it up to Mama with this Mother/heart tattoo

I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama
I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama

I killed a man for lookin’ at me wrong
And buried my friend for tryin’ to talk me down
And I wasted my inheritance on hookers and booze
But I’m gonna make it up to Mama with this Mother/heart tattoo

I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama
I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama

Mama don’t you know that I am sorry for the way I let you down
You done right by me the best you can somehow I still turned out like my old man

I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama
I’m gonna make it, make it up to Mama
