Lyrics

Sam Davis lost his sister
To a band of Shawnee Indians
She was taken in her youth
And in the flower of her innocence
So Sam packed up his saddle bags
And loaded up his gun
He told his worried mother
I've got to find her

And Mama
Don't you waste your tears on me
I am in the mighty arms
Of one who sets the captives free
And he will guide my steps
And keep my feet from stumbling
O Mama you will see
Before you know it I'll be home
My sister by my side
The light of your eyes
Will be back in your arms
Mama don't you cry

Like David with the lion and the bear
These Philistines will fall
Just like anyone who dares
Who dares stand before the Lord
And harm those for whom he cares
O Mama you will see

Before you know it I'll be home
My sister by my side
The light of your eyes
Will be back in your arms
Mama don't you cry

He trains my hands for battle
And my fingers to fight
He is my strength and my shield
And my fortress on high
In whom I trust
Mama don't you cry
We'll be home before you know

And when the daylight wanes
Don't you let your thoughts grow dark
Just say a prayer that I'll be strong
And I won't have to journey far
And the eye that's on the sparrow
It will also watch for me
O Mama you will see
Mama you will see

Before you know it I'll be home
My sister by my side
The light of your eyes
Will be back in your arms
Mama don't you cry
