      About "Mama Bake A Pie"

      Lyrics for Tom T. Hall - "Mama Bake A Pie"

      People staring at me as they wheel me
      Down the ramp toward my plane
      The war is over for me
      I've forgotten everything except the pain
      Thank you sir, and yes sir,
      It was worth it for the ol' red, white and blue
      And since, I won't be walking
      I suppose I'll save some money buying shoes

      The bottle hidden underneath the blanket, over my two battered legs
      I can see the stewardess make over me and ask "Were you afraid?"
      I'll say, "Why no I'm Superman, and couldn't find the phone booth quite in time."
      A GI gets a lot of laughs
      If he remembers all the funny lines

      [Chorus: ]
      Mama bake a pie, Daddy kill a chicken
      Your son is coming home, 11:35 Wednesday night

      The letter that she wrote me said good-bye
      She couldn't wait and lots of luck
      The bottle underneath the blanket feels
      Just like an old friend to my touch
      I know she'll come and see me
      But I bet she never once looks at my legs
      Naw, she'll talk about the weather
      And the dress she wore the July 4th parade
      Lord, I love her
      And I don't believe this bottle's gonna get her off my mind
      I see here in the paper
      Where they say the war is just a waste of time

      [Chorus:]
