TELL ME MAMA WHY IT'S SO HARD

Take your last look, I'll take mine
Maybe I'll see you around
I know we both wonder
What each other's all about
But ain't it a shame that we'll never find out
Life goes on and everything remains the same
In a little while babe, you look away from me
But it don't matter
Just before I go babe, one thing I got to know

Tell me mama, why is it so hard
Tell me mama, why is it so hard

This here town of yours
Has brought me nothing but pain
I though love was sunshine
But it's a midnight rain

Why can't anybody stand the change
Oh show me the reason
Whole town looks like a Christmas tree, baby
Out of season

Well I guess you got what you need, baby
I can't give you no more of mine
I'm havin' some trouble' movin' on
Oh I don't wanna go
Just before I go, one thing I wanna know

Tell me mama, why is it so hard
Oh tell me mama, why is it so hard
Oh mama why

This here town of yours
Brought me nothing but pain
Always though love was sunshine
But it ain't

Seems nobody can stand the change
But tell me the reason, baby
You're lookin' like a Christmas tree
Out of season

I guess you got what you need, girl
I can't promise you no more
Well I can't move the mountains
Oh I don't wanna hold back tears

Just before I go babe, one thing I got to know

Tell me mama, why is it so hard
Tell me mama, why is it so hard
Why it's so hard, why is it so hard
Oh why is it so hard
I said why
