Mama, I'm Not The Boy I Used To Be (Richard Belton)
Recorded by The Trixons (featuring Terry Connolly)
1967 King KG1069 / You're Gonna Wonder About Me

Dear Mama I'm coming home tomorrow
If you don't mind would you meet me at the train?
Dear Mama my wandering days are over
And it's so good to be coming home again;

Dear Mama we'll walk the fields together
And through the valley we'll stroll hand in hand
And I just can't wait to see you and touch the soil of home so clean
But Mama I'm not the boy I used to be

For I've been gone away too long
I've done everything that's wrong
But I think I've finally found myself at last;
And just you wait and see
Another chance is all I need
Oh but Mama I'm not the boy I used to be.

For you see Mama I've spent some time in prison,
For a crime that's so bad I'm just too ashamed to tell,
And when you meet me there tomorrow
Don't be surprised at what you'll see,
Oh Mama I'm not the boy I used to be.

For I've been gone away too long...

(Originally recorded by Charley Pride)
