ive got cuts all on my fingers
i got yellow on my teeth
ive got a tongue that often lingers
when i open my mouth to speak
mama dont you take the edge off
cause i wanna stay sharp as i can
life each day is full of loss
i gotta learn to understand
so just hold me please and say im an honest man
i dont wanna be no savior
though ill be one if i can
i aint much for doing favors
but your wish is my command
all i ever wanted
was to breathe some and look at my plans
and instead of being haunted
say ive done the best i can
so hold me please and say im an honest man
hey mama take my hand
help me come through what i dont understand
hey mama help me be
the honest man she thought she'd seen
before she knew i was a nervous boy
trippin through life like a wind up toy
she didnt know i was a nervous boy
she didnt know i was a nervous boy
ill be up at midnight
thinking bout how far ive come
mama dont you know ill be just right
i got spirit in my blood
but sometimes i get so anxious
that i feel i could turn to sand
can you free my mind of anguish
so i can do the best can
just hold me please and say im an honest man
