calvin scott – shame on the family name lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
since i remember
every word my daddy said, ha
as he lay dying on his dying bed
he said i’m leaving you with a fine reputation
i built this family on a strong foundation
mama began to cry, the kids had tears in their eyes
and these were the last words that my daddy said

[chorus]
don’t bring shame (shame)
don’t bring shame (shame)
on the family name (on the family name!)
oh no

[verse 2]
wasn’t long after my daddy had gone
little sister turned 21, that’s a-right, she was grown
every night she’d bring a different man home
i could lay in my room, and i could hear them carrying on
sometimes i believe she’s got rocks in her head
i know she remember what my daddy said

[chorus]
don’t bring shame (shame)
don’t bring shame (shame)
on the family name (on the family name!)
oh no

don’t bring shame (shame)
don’t bring shame (shame)
on the family name (on the family name!)
oh no

[verse 3]
bad news from the police department caused mama to have a heart attack (mama had a heart attack)
little sister got the news and she came slinking back
but it was too late, there wasn’t a thing that she could do
but kneel at the mama’s grave and cry the whole day through
i could see the guilt in her eyes, i could tell she realized
as she slowly dropped her head, and this is what she said

[chorus]
i brought shame
i brought shame, shame
on the family name (on the family name!)
oh yeah

[outro]
i brought shame
i brought shame, shame
on the family name (on the family name!)\
i’m sorry mama
i brought shame
i brought shame, shame
on the family name (on the family name!)
