[Verse]
G
She didn’t want em to grow up.
Cadd9
In a broken, busted up home.
G
Where the rent can barely be paid
Cadd9
And you pray the lights’ll turn on.
G
No she didn’t want em to grow up
Cadd9
But she works the best that she can.
G
For a two bed, one bath section 8 place,
Em         Cadd9      G
new paint, old table, no dad.
 
 
[Chorus]
G
And pinchin every quarter, every dollar,
Cadd9
every day that goes by.
G
The Coulda woulda shoulda beens every teenage sin that
Cadd9
brought her into this complex life.
Em
And at the end of the day
Cadd9
she done her best to pave a
G                           D
way on the road god put her on.
 
Single mom.
 
 
[Verse]
G
No she couldn’t do it on her own
Cadd9
Sure takes a village to raise a kid
G
Took some damn good friends and a little bit a luck
Cadd9
To do it like she did
 
G
And she couldn’t afford all the nicer things
Cadd9
But they had more love than they could ever need
G
And daddy never stepped up in the end
Em              Cadd9          G
So she was mom and dad and her best friend
 
 
[Chorus]
G
And pinchin every quarter, every dollar,
Cadd9
every day that goes by.
G
The Coulda woulda shoulda beens every teenage sin that
Cadd9
brought her into this complex life.
Em
And at the end of the day
Cadd9
she done her best to pave a
G                           D (One strum)
way on the road god put her on.
 
Single mom.
 
Em                       Cadd9               D
She’s only missed church twice since May of 17.
Em                       Cadd9              Em   Cadd9 D
And prays they don’t turn around and do the same damn thing.
 
 
[Chorus]
G
And pinchin every quarter, every dollar,
Cadd9
every day that goes by.
G
The Coulda woulda shoulda beens every teenage sin that
Cadd9
brought her into this complex life.
Em
And at the end of the day
Cadd9
she done her best to pave a
G                           D (One strum)
way on the road god put her on.
 
Single mom.
