Anthony sings Momma Done Left with Emilie singing harmony. Anthony appreciated this song. Anthony was raised by grandparents and went on the road with with a band from his hometown in Indiana when he was just 15 after his grandpa died. The song includes "Left his home, he's just 14". He's been on the road since... learned to play every instrument in the band and plays them well ... he's extremely talented and experienced in the recording studio for such a young man and fronts his own band... www.AnthonyRayWright.com
(Em)Momma done left (D) he’s just a (Em) boy
(Em)Daddy knew (C) what a (D7) belt was for…..momma escaped(C) the daddy’s war
(D7)daddy fought it.... forever (Em) more
Boy left home he’s just 14…smoked some grass with a Cajun queen
taught him down under and in between…nakedest lady he’d ever seen
Chorus…(G)chalk it up to (C)experience …(B)live and learn (C)ingredients
(Em) got his masters (C)on the street…(B) pimps and pushers did the (C) teaching
(Em) Became a cop to (D) stay (Em) alive….cause he could (C) shoot a (D7) 45
knew who packed …who (C) had a knife
(D7) where to find a…. pair of (Em) dice (paradise)
Now he’s just a tired old man
easy mark for a young wild man…give me your money was the kids demand
he shot that pistol from that kid’s hand
(Em)Wonder what his (D)mom would (Em) say….if she (C) hadn’t (D7) run away
he’d be chillin’ (C) in the pen (D7) saving her….. by killin’ (Em) him.
(Em) Momma done left he’s (D) just a (Em) boy.
left him (C) crying (D7) at the door… park bench is his (C) bedroom floor
he (D7) remembers memories… that’s what they’re (Em) for.
