Lyrics

At sixteen she quit high school to make her fortune in the promised land
She got a job behind the counter at an all-night hamburger stand
She wrote faithfully home to Mama "now Mama don't you worry none"
From small things Mama, big things one day come

It was late one Friday he pulled in out of the dark
He was tall and handsome, first she took his order then she took his heart
They bought a house up on the hillside where little feet soon would run
From small things Mama, big things one day come

Oh but love is fleeting, it's sad but it's true
But when your heart is beating you don't wanna hear the news
She packed her bags and with a Wyomie County real estate man
She ran down to Tampa in an El Dorado Grande
She wrote back home "dear Mama life is just heaven in the sun"
From small things Mama, big things one day come

Well she shot him dead on a sunny Florida road
When they caught her all she said was she couldn't stand the way he drove
Back home lonesome Johnny prays for his baby's parole
He waits on the hillside where the Wyomie waters roll
At his feet and almost grown now a blue-eyed daughter and a handsome son
Well from small things Mama, big things one day come
