Song Title: Slipped Away (The Ballad of Lauretha Vaird)
Good morning son
It's off to school you go
Mom's gone to work you know
Mom when are you coming home

There's a bank robbery that's going on
Ooh this very morn
Mom's gone to work for sure
Mom when are you coming home

Officers the bank is being held
By two gunmen that don't mean well
Mom's on the job can't you tell
Mom when are you coming home

Mom when are you coming home
To see your son
Daughter don't be a policeman
Please be a school teacher instead

You're so good with the children
Mom when are you coming home
Teacher please excuse these boys from class
Their mother gone from a gunshot blast

Another cop shot down on patrol
Mom when are you coming home
Mom when are you coming home
To see your son

The gangsters killed our mother dead
All is lost from our family
They tried to save our mom in vain
She drowned in blood and she was not saved

The bank is open and the robbers jailed
And Mom won't be coming home
The way they run their world so wrong
How can us brothers get along

Mom when are you coming home
