Music Making Mama From Memphis

Song Author Hank Snow Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Listen to a story about a gal I know

She's my music making mama I'm her hillbilly beau
[F]She's sweeter than the music when she tickles the strings
[C]Sweeter than the flowers down in New Orleans
She's my [G7]music making mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


She'll play a little rhythm do the boogie up right

The Tennessee polka maybe blues in the night
[F]Everybody travels from near and far
[C]To hear her when she swings it on her old guitar
She's my [G7]music making mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


You can hear her in the evening when the sun sinks low

A singing and a picking on her old banjo
[F]You gotta jive when the words roll out of her mouth
[C]Everybody's calling her the Queen of the South
She's my [G7]fiddle playing mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


You gotta start dancing when she gets in the groove

Plays the big bass fiddle or she'll yodel the blues
[F]She plays a down beat an off beat any old beat
[C]A breakdown a hoedown and does it up neat
She's my [G7]bass picking baby from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


You'll know when my baby is a coming to town

All the jive jumping jitterbugs they gather around
[F]They keep yelling to my Queenie now honey let's go
[C]My baby starts a picking and a picking down low
My music [G7]making mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


She'll play a little rhythm do the boogie up right

The Tennessee polka maybe blues in the night
[F]Everybody travels from near and far
[C]To hear her when she picks it on her old guitar
She's my [G7]music making mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see  


You can hear her in the evening when the sun sinks low

A singing and a picking on her old banjo
[F]You gotta jive when the words roll out of her mouth
[C]Everybody's calling her the Queen of the South
She's my [G7]fiddle playing mama from Memphis Tennes[C]see
