Lyrics

Verse 1:
I remember when he was no more than a stranger
Answering the front door I felt fear and I felt anger
But Momma put her makeup on and even wore her heels
She set four plates on the table like she hadn’t done in years

I was still too young to see the way her happy
Coming from the city he was nothing like my daddy
He was strange and he was different, I didn’t get his jokes
Never would have dreamed he’d be the man I’m proud to know

Chorus:
He’s humble and he’s unassuming, patient like there’s nothing to it
thankful and content to treat us like his friends
He’s comfortable in his own shoes, loves with nothing else to prove
He’s living proof that heaven has a plan
I thank God for Momma’s man

Verse 2:
He don’t try to take the place of the man that she loved first
He don’t expect his name on a gravestone next to hers
By now he knows our stories, cuz he listens and he cares
The way he laughs along you’d never know he wasn’t there

Chorus

Bridge:
I thank God

Chorus
He’s humble and he’s unassuming, patient like there’s nothing to it
thankful and content to treat us like his friends
He’s comfortable in his own shoes, loves with nothing else to prove
He’s living proof that heaven has a plan
Even when it’s hard to understand
I thank God for Momma’s Man
