Grew up just west of the tracks
Holding me to hold me back
Around your door
She's calling out my name

She said "son won't you go outside
I've got a man coming over tonight
The seventh one in seven days"

So I go down
To the parking lot
And hang around
All my friends
And roam the street 'till dawn
Breaks again

I come in at five am
And she is waitin' for me
She said, "Where have you been?"
I said,
"I was out!"
She said, "you're no good 'cause
You're runnin' without love"

I'm going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I'm going straight to hell

The black widow and the
Ladies man
Met down at the laundromat
And tried to make me
Understand

The neighbors were
All in a stir
About what they might have heard
And runnin' down they shouted out
It seemed

Next door a girl she lives
About the same age as me
And asked me to come upstairs
For a see

Just then her mother burst in
Said, "You're the son of that ***** in the wind
Get outta my house
Hit the road"
I kept fallin' like a Rolling Stones song
I'm going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I'm going straight to hell

The stars came out
And warned me so
As I walked on down
The road
Fifty bucks and a suitcase
Steered me clear

She took my hand
As we walked into the sun
A new days promise had
Begun
We'll make it alone
Whether you like it or not
I turned and shouted

Help me mother
I'm going straight to hell
Just like my mama said
I'm going straight to hell

Mother
Love her
Won't you let me go
