lyrics

Oh child, stay with your momma.
Stay with your momma now or the devil’s gonna take you away.
Ooh child, stay close to your momma now, or the devil, he’s gonna make you pay.

Ooh child, be good to your friends now.
Be good to your friends now, ‘cause later they’re gonna go away.
Oh child, be good to your wife now.
Be good to your wife now, you’re gonna need her some day.

Oh child, you’d better talk to the lord now.
Confess your sins or the devil’s gonna take you away.
Ooh child, stay in the lines now. Stay in the lines now.
Don’t you go astray.

After a while, you get used to the taste of your blood.
After a while, you get used to waking up in mud.
After a while, nothing hurts anymore.

Oh child, stay with your momma now.
Stay with your momma now or the devil’s gonna take you away.
Ooh child, stay with to your momma now.
Stay with your momma now or the devil’s gonna make you pay.
