One of those heavy mama’s
Done fuck with my head

She didn’t get no lovin
So she fucked with my head

Those No Lovin’ mama’s
They smother their sons

Lay out pain and sorrow
On their Lovin’ sons head

So I ran wild
Like a mad dog

Through towns and the cities
Joined all the causes to clear out the pain

sought out the answers
for guilt, pain and shame
he had a heavy mama
who had all the pain

all the tender kindness
put on your brain
through desperation and luck
through fire and rain
he found his real sound

his heart beat like a hammer a poet claimed

but deep inside him
remains still the pain
of a Heavy Mama and Fire and Rain
