“Goodbye Momma, goodbye to you too Pa
Little sister, you'll have to wait a while to come along
Goodybye to this house and all it's memories
We just got too old to say we're wrong
Got to make one last trip to my bedroom
Guess I'll have to leave some stuff behind
It's funny how the same old crooked pictures
Just don't seem the same to me tonight
There ain't no use in shedding lonely tears Mamma
There ain't no use in shouting at me Pa
I can't live no longer with your fears Mamma
I love you but that hasn't helped at all
Each of us must do the things that matter
All of us must see what we can see
It was long ago, you must remember
You were once as young and scared as me
I don't know how hard it is yet Mamma
When you realize you're growing old
I know how hard is not to be younger
I know you've tried to keep me from the cold
Thanks for all you done, it may sound hollow
Thank you for the good times that we've known
But I must find my own road, now to follow
You will all be welcome in my home
Got my suitcase, I must go now
I don't mind about the things you said
I'm sorry Mom, I don't know where I'm going
Remember little sister ,look ahead
Tomorrow I'll be in some other sunrise
Maybe I'll have someone at my side
Mamma, give your love back to your husband
Father, you've have taught me well, goodbye
Goodbye Mamma, goodbye to you too Pa” – Tom Rush
