Only Mama Knows Lyrics

Artist: Paul McCartney
Album: Memory Almost Full

Only Mama Knows

Verse One:

Well, I was found in the transit lounge
of a dirty airport town
What was I doing on the road to ruin
Well my mama laid me down
My mama laid me down

Verse Two:

Around my hand was a plastic band
With a picture of my face
I was crying, left to die
in this godforsaken place
This godforsaken place


Only Mama knows
what she laid me down
in this godforsaken town
Where she was running to what she ran from
Though I always wondered, I never knew
Only Mama knows
Only Mama knows


I'm passing through
I'm on my way
On the road, no ETA
I'm passing through
No fixed abode
And that is why....
I need to try
To hold on
I've got to hold on (3X)

Verse Three:

Was it planned as a one night stand
or did she live in disgrace
Well, I never
will I ever
see my father's face
See my father's face

Repeat Chorus (2X)

Gotta hold on... (4X)
