Ev'ry thing seems lovely, When you start to roam.
The birds are singing the day that you stray, But wait until you are further away.
Things won't be so lovely, When you're all alone.
Here's what you'll keep saying, When you're far from home.
Mammy, Mammy,
The sun shines East the sun shines West, but I've just learned where the sun shines best.
Mammy, Mammy,
My heart strings are tangled around Alabamy.
I'se acomin', sorry that I made you wait.
I'se acomin', hope and pray I'm not too late.
Mammy, Mammy,
I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles, my Mammy.
