lyrics

you'd never hear about a small town murder
till the guilty name listed in the paper is yours
and for your picture in that dirty striped suit
you wore your smile and your mama's pearls

your mama grew up in this dusty town
and her pearls came out when the sun went down
most ladies wore them to go pray in their pews
not the mama you knew, not the mama you knew

but i ain't saying mama didn't pray
she prayed everyday, Lord knows she prayed
and i remember that the day daddy laid down in his grave
she sang amazing grace

and her voice'd sound so sweet
as she fell down to her knees
beg the sky for freedom and grace
come clean my guilty stains

daddy loved mama with his words and his hands
but don't dare call him a gentle man
the only thing he ever gave his lady was a whiskey habit
and a dark haired baby

and the day mama made daddy pay
she thought whiskey was her only escape
little did she know that that baby
would cover her mistakes
answer her prayers for amazing grace

amazing grace how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me
i once was lost but now i'm found
was blind but now i see

you'd never hear about a small town murder
till the guilty name listed in the paper is yours
and for your picture in that dirty striped suit
you wore your smile and your mama's pearls
