Tell Mama (That I Won't Be Coming Home)
© 2019 Hank Thomas Music/ all rights reserved

V1
I'm lying here on this field hospital bed
Got a hole in my chest lotta pain in my head
Corpsman tells me that it's getting pretty near the end
Is there a message to somebody that I want him to send

CH
Tell Mama, that I won't be coming home
Tell Daddy, carve my name on the family's tombstone
Tell my wife and little baby, That I'm sorry for leaving them alone
Tell Mama, That I won't be coming home

Break

V2
Every breath I take could be my last
Guess I ought to be grateful that I had the chance
To kiss a pretty girl at a High School dance
To fall in love and have a real romance

CH
Tell Mama, that I won't be coming home
Tell Daddy, to carve my name on the family tombstone
Tell my wife and little baby, I'm so sorry for leaving them alone
Tell Mama, I won't be coming home

Tell my wife and little baby, I'm so sorry for leaving them alone
Tell Mama, I won't be coming home
