Mama cried a / tear and then she / promised fourteen / children,
   / F                        / G7                / C
"I / swear you'll never / see a hungry / day."

            / D                          /                               / G                  / D
Oh, the / path was deep and / wide, from footsteps / leading to our / cabin,
     / F                          / G7                    / C
A - / bove the door there / burned a scarlet / lamp, and

Late at night, a / hand would knock and / there would stand a / stranger,
F                  / G7                  / C
I'm the son of / Hick'ry Holler's / tramp.

Mama sacri - / ficed her pride, and / neighbors started / talkin',
      / D                     /                         / G                             / A7
But / I was much too / young to under - / stand the things they / said,
      / D                            /                        / G                      / D
The / things that mattered / most of all was / Mama's chicken / dumplin's, and
   /  F                        / G7                   / C
A / goodnight kiss be- / fore we went to / bed.

When / Daddy left, and / destitution / came upon our / fam'ly,

Not one neighbor / volunteered to / give a helpin' / hand,
     / D                   /                           / G                       / D
So / let 'em gossip / all they want; she / loved us and she / raised us.
      /  F                      / G7                     / C
The / proof is standing / here, a full grown / man.

       / D                     /                           / G                       / D
Last / summer Mama / passed away and / left the ones who / loved her,

Each and ev'ry / one is more than / grateful for his / birth,
         / D                               /                 / G                     / G
Each / Sunday she receives a / fresh bou - / quet of fourteen / roses, and
   / F                                 / G7                      / C
