Philip Claypool - Strength Of A Woman lyrics

Mama still loves me and Daddy don't care
Mama always held me and he was never there
Growin' up a lonely, I never had a hand
Or someone to show me how to be a man

But Mama loved me tender, put the shoes on my feet
She gave me her all and it was all I'd ever need
Oh, the strength of a woman, the touch of her hand
The comfort of her kindness and the time to understand

Her smile in the morning
And when she tucked me to sleep
Oh, the strength of a woman is all I'll ever need

School was never easy and Daddy didn't care
He said, son, you better make the grade or you're going nowhere
So late in the evening and deep into the night
Mom would ask the question till finally got 'em right

Mama taught me so much and now I understand
That the key to the answer is always close at hand
It's the strength of a woman, the wisdom in her eyes

The comfort of her kind voice that makes you wanna try
And hold on forever and make your own peace
Oh, the strength of a woman is all I'll ever need

Well, I've known victory and I've known defeat
Seen home fires burning and dead end streets
Seen lone stars falling and the heavens up above
But the thing that most amazes me is a woman's love

Oh, it's the strength of a woman in the touch of her hand
It's the strength of a woman that strengthens a man
It's her smile in the morning, it's a kiss when I'm weak
Oh, the strength of a woman is all I'll ever need

Yeah, it's the strength of a woman
It's the touch of her hand
Yeah, it's the strength of a woman that strengthens a man
