Lyrics

I never saw my baby boy

but I knew his name

that don't mean I did not

love him just the same

 

I still loved his mama

even after what she'd done

she took away my only child

she killed my only son

 

My love soon turned to anger

and I wanted her to die

after three days I spent alone

when all I did was cry

 

I'm glad I did not take her life

she was not worth the jail

besides that would have saved her

from the distance that she fell

 

(chorus)

Oh Jeremiah

I did nothing to forgive

it wasn't me who had a choice

in deciding if you'd live

 

but I would never take away

your mama's right to choose

some choices are too easy son

when it's not your life to lose

 

  By now you would be ten years old

I just turned forty-five

I wonder what you'd be like

if you were still alive

 

Would you be a better me

or would you be me worse

good-looking life your mama

but black inside and cursed

 

I don't believe in heaven 

but I have been to hell

the day your mama took your life

the lie she tried to sell

 

Your blood was never on my hands

but flows inside me still

sometimes I wish you were a dream

but I know you were real

(chorus)

 

Oh Jeremiah

 I did nothing to forgive

it wasn't me who had a choice 

in deciding if you'd live

 

but I would never take away 

your mama's right to choose

some choices are too easy son

when it's not your life to lose
