The voice of opportunity was callin' out my name
So me and Daddy's suitcase boarded that old train
Headed for a new life in a pplace I'd never been
Wond'rin when I'd see this town again
We pulled into the station in a town called New Orleans
It wasn't long 'tll hard time nearly got the best of me
It would've been so easy to give up and go back home
but somethin'always kept me hangin on

chorus
Mama said there'd be days like this
Son that's just the way it is
Sometimes things don't work for the best
You cant stop a storm from rollin' in
Take shelter it'll pass and then
The sun is gonna mama said
There'd be days like this

I met her in a French cafe just out side of town
I gave her my heart and pretty soon we settled down
But she grew cold and restless and took off like the wind
Sometimes you lose sometimes you just cant win

chorus
Mama said there'd be days like this
Son that's just the way it is
Sometimes things don't work for the best
You cant stop a storm from rollin' in
Take shelter it'll pass and then
The sun is gonna mama said
There'd be days like this

You cant stop a storm from rollin'in
Take shelter it'll pass and then
The sun is gonna shine and mama said
There'd be days like this
