momma lyrics – electric light orchestra

she came up from the country with a smile for everyone
she left her blue horizon just to find another home
a lonely girl who’d travelled many days
a lonely heart that could not find a way

and she said momma, it’s a hard life now you’re gone
momma, it’s so hard to carry on
and i feel i’m a fool who lost it all
you used to make it all so very clear
that life must go on though the end is near
oh momma, it’s a sad and lonely life

a misty morning rider she came wandering through the hills
a wanderin soul appearin over rainy window sills
a loser in her heart, but in her face
a smile for everyone under god’s grace


midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place
gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
a lady lost in nowhere but her stare
leaves the world, her life to start somewhere
