Kitty Wells — Mother Of Your Child lyrics

I tried very hard to keep the tears from rolling down my face
I tried hard to keep remembering my rightful place
I can't look sad I must act cheerful though you're running wild
I'm not your woman anymore just a mother of your child.

I must keep up a happy part for things are really bad
I must make sure our child would think the very best of dad
Even though I'm feeling mean and spiteful I act meek and mild
I'm not your woman anymore just the mother of your child.

--- Instrumental ---

How I wish I didn't have to keep my pain conceal
There are times I'd cheat right back though you'd know how I feel
But I can't forget my image there's a little life at stake
Knows that songs from mama of a heart so bowed to break.

There's one who counts a whole lot more than you and me combine
That's why I must put every thought of leaving from my mind
I must pay the counts of your affection with a grateful smile
I'm not your woman anymore just the mother of your child...
