Track Name: Granny Smith
O mama, t’as toujours dit à moi
Awe t’es mieux demander mon pardon
Que ma permission

O quoi faire c’est bien trop dur pour moi
O que tout quelq’un peut s’aimer
Comme moi je les aime

O mama priez pour mes enfants
O c’est malheureux
Quand je peux pas les soigner

Sauter de le chassis
Juste une heure après minuit
Elle faisait pas un bruit
S’echapper dedans la nuit
Sauter dans le boue
Pour traverser le bayou
Monter sur les chevaux
Pour chaser les chats-poteau

Couri après les bêtes
Avec un bon plum de chouette
Jouer en cachette
Après fumer ma cigarette
Mama a crié
Papa a fouetté
Petite soeur a braillé
Mais moi je m’ai sauvée

O mama, you always told me
It’s better to ask forgiveness
Than to ask permission

O why is it so hard for me
Can everyone can love them selves
As much as I love them

O mama, pray for my children
O it’s so sad
When I can’t take care of them

Jumped out the window
An hour after midnight
She didn’t make a sound
Escaped in the night
Jumped in the mud
To cross the bayou
Jumped on her horse
To go Pole-Cat hunting

Run after the cows
With an owl feather
Playing hide-and-seek
Smoking my cigarette
Mama screamed
Daddy whipped
Little sister cried
But I got away
