Lyrics
A canvas covered cabin in a crowded labor camp stands out in this mem'ry I revive
'Cause my daddy raised a family there with two hard working hands
And tried to feed my mama's hungry eyes
He dreamed of something better and my mama's faith was strong

And us kids were just too young to realize
That another class of people put us somewhere just below
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes
Mama never had the luxuries she wanted but it wasn't cause my daddy didn't try

She only wanted things she really needed
One more reason for my mama's hungry eyes
I remember my daddy praying for a better way of life
But I don't recall a change of any size

Just a little loss of courage as their age began to show
And more sadness in my mama's hungry eyes
Mama never had the luxuries...
Oh I still recall my mama's hungry eyes
