Momma's Waiting Lyrics: As I drive toward home I picture Momma waiting, She'll be glad to see her big time boy come home, She gets little in return for all she's given, And I'm all she's got to love. As I drive away behind me Momma's waving To a son who's all she'd ever hoped he'd be Now she says her final prayers, And go, meet Daddy And I'm glad she's only seen one side of me. Today makes thirteen years in Coleman's Federal Prison And tonight I'll walk these last few steps alone But I can't help think that somewhere Momma's waiting Once again to see her big time boy come home.
