You Were Working for Me
by Mark Bishop

Album: The Song In My Heart


Verse 1

She picked the tip up off the table,
Wiped her forehead with her sleeve.
Another tray of dirty dishes, and it's time for her to leave.
She clocks out and says 'good night ya'll',
Looks out at the road ahead.
When she pulls into the drive, it's time to put the kids in bed.

Verse 2

I hope you know your mother loves you.
Oh you know, we know you do.
We tried to clean the house, and we did all our homework too.
Mom, I hope you feel real special, cause anyone can see,
You're not working for the money, you're working for a family.

Chorus

Yeah, you're working for me.
And you're paying the price.
And I'll never forget how much you gave,
or how much you sacrificed.
And I'm gonna pay you back someday, you'll see.
For all that you gave up, when you were working for me.

Verse 3

One last time she goes to visit, and she's holding back the tears.
The doctor says, "It won't be long. Your mother's getting up in years."
I hope you know your daughter loves you,
Oh you know, I know you do.
She strokes her hair and smiles and holds her hand the whole night through.

Verse 4

Then somewhere in the morning, just before the break of day.
A mother's fingers lose their grip, and a last breath slips away.
And the hard life she held on to, she turns loose and lets it go.
Then a gentle voice says "Come on home, in case you didn't know."

2nd Chorus

You were working for me.
And you paid the price.
And I didn't forget how much you gave,
or how much you sacrificed.
Now it's time to pay you back,
Oh you're gonna see.
For all that you gave up,
When you were working for me.

Tag

And I know sometimes it seemed like you were working for free,
But you were working for me. You were working for me.
