Lyrics

Dear Momma, I’m So Sorry

G C
Momma gave me everything she had to give
D G
So I took advantage of all I could
G
I made her cry, cause I’m selfish guy, when you
C
look inside
D
You’ll find an empty shelf where my heart’s
G
supposed to lie


G C
The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
D
And I‘ve been hurting myself
G
Holding back the tears

G C
The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
D
And I‘ve been hurting myself
G
Holding back the tears

Momma sits on the couch and watches the news
She’s concerned with the world and what the children do
At night she cries, when she dries her eyes, she wonders why
How her little boy grew up wishin’ to die

The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
And I‘ve been hurting myself
Holding back the tears

The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
And I‘ve been hurting myself
Holding back the tears

C G
Momma oh momma
D Em
I can’t help the way I am
C G
I’m so sorry for bein’ me

D
Momma sweet momma
D
I’m so sorry
D G
I m so sorry for bein me

G C
The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
D
And I‘ve been hurting myself
G
Holding back the tears

G C
The devil’s had control for 20 long years now
D
And I‘ve been hurting myself
G
Holding back the tears


C G
Momma oh momma
D Em
I can’t help the way I am
C G
I’m so sorry for bein’ me

D
Momma sweet momma
D
I’m so sorry
D G
I m so sorry for bein me
