Mama's Hungry Eyes


by Emmylou Harris. Buy album CD: Mama's Hungry Eyes - A Tribute To Merle Haggard


A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labor camp
Stand out in this memory I revived
‘Cause my daddy raised a family there
With two hard working hands
And tried to feed my mama's hungry eyes

He dreamed of something better
And my mama's faith was strong
And us kids were just to young to realize
That another class of people put us somewhere just below
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes

Mama never had the luxuries she wanted
But it wasn't ‘cause my daddy didn't try
She only wanted things she really needed
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes

I remember daddy praying for a better way of life
But I don't recall a change of any size
Just a little loss of courage, as their age began to show
And more sadness in my mama's hungry eyes

Mama never had the luxuries she wanted
But it wasn't ‘cause my daddy didn't try
She only wanted things she really needed
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes

Oh, I still recall my mama's hungry eyes
