    Ma would never say what happened
    And we knew better than push too hard
    We knew we had all the chores to tend to
    Like fixing fences and helping her
    Washing dishes and making coffee
    Me and Virgil'd chop some wood
    But we'd stop our swinging
    Just to listen to her crying
    It didn't sound too good
    I can remember, too well

    But we never thought to pay much heed
    We learned to live life the best we could
    But then one day pa upped and left us
    High and dry without a word
    Seemed a pity
    My ma was pretty
    But I soon learned life ain't that way
    And I can remember hearing her weeping
    While we were sleeping next to her

    I can remember
    I'll never forgive and I'll never forget
    Cos pa you broke her heart
    Ooh pa you broke her heart
    You broke her heart
    Ooh pa you broke her heart

    Well the years rolled by
    And 'fore we knew it
    Our sister got married and moved out west
    I stayed with ma, cos I couldn't desert her
    I knew it would hurt her to be alone
    So we pulled tighter
    We said we'd try to make things easy
    And raise a smile
    But as the night came
    We'd hear her crying
    Praying for pa to come back again

    I can remember
    I'll never forgive him and I'll never forget
    Cos pa you broke her heart
    Oh pa you broke her heart

    And then the winter came
    I'd never known it colder
    Ooh it seemed the worst for years
    And the night she died I swear I saw her smiling
    Saying I was a big boy now, no tears

    So I packed up all we had, and Virgil got the horses
    And we paid our last respects and gave the whip a crack
    Ooh, seemed a big bad world, we were riding into
    Me and Virgil both agreed, we best head off
    And don't look back

    Nothing but desert all around
    Oh it made me wonder
    Lord it's hard to carry on
    When you're sick with hunger

    Weeks and months of sleeping rough
    Keeping clear of danger
    Seems we were miles from anywhere
    And too far gone to change it
    We'd best keep going, don't look back

    Well me and Virgil we beat the desert
    Riding fast and riding hard
    We hit the city, the past behind us
    So we raised some hell, we had some fun
    But real soon I met a lady oh so pretty, and oh so fine
    'fore too long I found myself married
    With a home of my own and a blue eyed son
    And 'til this day I can hear ma saying to me -
