The Man That Turned My Mama On

Song Author Ed Bruce Performer: Tanya Tucker og Ed Bruce Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on  
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know

Mama was no prude but she [C]was proper never [F]wore her dress too [C]short
She didn't care if you did but [G7]she'd never taken a [C]drink
Grandma Kate did the best she could to [F]see mama grew up [C]right
So she'd be fitting one [G7]day for courting and to [F]wear some gentleman's [C]ring

I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on  
People was always laughing and [G7]sang a right sweet [C]song

[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on  
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know


[C]I hear he came to town one day in a [F]rusty old '49 [C]Ford
Selling ladies shoes and [G7]assorted greeting [C]cards
He was killer good looking and easy to like and [F]turning all the ladies [C]heads
But he saw mama first and [G7]Lord knows how some of [F]them traveling men [C]are  

[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on  
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know


[C]Mama seemed to forget the things that grandma [F]Kate had always told [C]her  
She ran away one night [G7]with that traveling [C]man  
They bought gas at Reba's Truck Stop and [F]drove to Desoto [C]County
But he brought her [G7]home with a ring [F]upon her [C]hand

[C]Mama's told me how the fever took him [F]when I was barely [C]five
But I remember him pitching me [G7]up and catching [C]me  
And I love to sit and listen to her [F]tell me about my [C]daddy
She says he thought the [G7]sun would surely [F]rise and set in [C]me  

[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on  
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know


I wish I'd known the man a little better that turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man cause mama was a lady don't you know

Mama was no prude but she was proper never wore her dress too short
She didn't care if you did but she'd never taken a drink
Grandma Kate did the best she could to see mama grew up right
So she'd be fitting one day for courting and to wear some gentleman's ring

I wish I'd known the man a little better that turned my mama on
People was always laughing and sang a right sweet song

I wish I'd known the man a little better that turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man cause mama was a lady don't you know

I hear he came to town one day in a rusty old '49 Ford
Selling ladies shoes and assorted greeting cards
He was killer good looking and easy to like and turning all the ladies heads
But he saw mama first and Lord knows how some of them traveling men are

I wish I'd known the man a little better that turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man cause mama was a lady don't you know

Mama seemed to forget the things that grandma Kate had always told her
She ran away one night with that traveling man
They bought gas at Reba's Truck Stop and drove to Desoto County
But he brought her home with a ring upon her hand

Mama's told me how the fever took him when I was barely five
But I remember him pitching me up and catching me
And I love to sit and listen to her tell me about my daddy
She says he thought the sun would surely rise and set in me

I wish I'd known the man a little better that turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man cause mama was a lady don't you know
