Mama Raised You Right

Rust got in the wind,
I saw that face has changed
sittin' in the bar, watchin' the dirt.
 
If and when it hurts,
pour some whisky on 'n' in
of where it hurts and the Matador.
 
Bloody fists and broken jaws,
till they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
You would start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
And I took a bat
to the weather vane because in ten
we could dust your end.
 
And you slashed the tyres
of the getaway Mustang
because in the end we ain't grown men.
 
Bloody fists and broken jaws,
till they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
When you come in, you start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
If I were his and one of you his friends,
they were only strangers in the end
'cause we picked the loneliest side.
'Cause we picked the loneliest side.
 
Fare-thee-well to the departed,
have left me a full even back-scarring
'cause we picked the loneliest side.
'Cause we picked the loneliest side.
 
Bloody fists and broken jaws,
till they see the light.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
You would start a war
just for some peace of mind.
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
Your mama raised you,
mama raised you,
mama raised you right.
 
Thanks!

Rust got in the wind
I saw that face has changed
Sittin' in the bar
Watchin' the dirt

If and when it hurts
Pour some whisky on 'n' in
Of where it hurts
And the Matador

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
You would start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

And I
Took a bat to the weather vane
Because in ten
We could dust your end

And you
Slashed the tires of the getaway Mustang
Because in the end
We ain't grown men

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
When you come in you start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

If I were his
And one of you his friends
They were only strangers in the end
'Cause we picked the loneliest side
'Cause we picked the loneliest side

Fare-thee-well
To the departed
Have left me a full even back-scarring
'Cause we picked the loneliest side
'Cause we picked the loneliest side

Bloody fists and broken jaws till they see the light
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
You would start a war just for some peace o' mind
Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right

Your mama raised you, mama raised you, mama raised you right
