Ann Marie - Lyrics

Well my mom grew up right in between
her four sisters and ten brothers, too
And after high school she went to work doing what her dad used to
Well she got married, started a family, raised us kids all on her own
And now her daughter is raising up a family of her own

She gave us courage, she gave us family
She'd give the shoes right off her feet
She'd light a dark room as she'd dance and sing around to Motown tunes
And when I enlisted to join the service she did not stall or hesitate
Or keep me guessing, she just gave me her blessing
Saying, "It's what he wants to do"

Slowly, Heaven took her slowly
But she marched brave and boldly
In sickness remained holy
Heaven, were you lonely?
Heaven took her slowly
But she marched brave and boldly
In sickness remained holy
Heaven, were you
Heaven, were you

Well Mama, I still hear your voice and I still hear your laugh
And I hope you're proud of your boy and I wish you could come back
And I will live everyday to try to make you proud
And we'll see each other someday, someway, somehow
Someway, somehow
Someway, somehow
Someway, somehow

You gave us courage, you gave us family
You'd give the shoes right off your feet
