Whats Your Mamas Name

Song Author Dallas Frazier og Earl Montgomery Performer: Tanya Tucker Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]What's your mama's name child  [G]what's your [D7]mama's [G]name
Thirty some [D7]odd years ago a [C]young man came to [G]Memphis
Asking bout a [D7]rose that used to [C]blossom in his [G]world
People never [D7]took the time to [C]mind the young man's [G]questions
Till one day they [D7]heard him ask a little green eyed [G]girl

What's your mama's[C] name child [D7]what's your mama's [G]name
Does she ever [C]talk about a [G]place called New [D7]Orleans
[G]Has she ever [D7]mentioned a [G]man named Buford [C]Wilson
[G]What's your mama's [C]name child [G]what's your [D7]mama's [G]name

Twenty some [D7]odd years ago a [C]drunkard down in [G]Memphis
Lost a month of [D7]life in labor [C]to the county [G]jail
Just because [D7]he asked a little [C]green eyed girl a [G]question
And offered her a [D7]nickels worth of candy if she'd [G]tell

What's your mama's[C] name child [D7]what's your mama's [G]name
Does she ever [C]talk about a [G]place called New [D7]Orleans
[G]Has she ever [D7]mentioned a [G]man named Buford [C]Wilson
[G]What's your mama's [C]name child [G]what's your [D7]mama's [G]name

A year and some [D7]odd days ago an [C]old man died in [G]Memphis
Just another [D7]wayward soul the [C]county'd have to [G]pay  
Inside the old [D7]man's ragged coat [C]they found a faded [G]letter
It said you have a [D7]daughter and her eyes are Wilson [G]green

What's your mama's[C] name child [D7]what's your mama's [G]name
Does she ever [C]talk about a [G]place called New [D7]Orleans
[G]Has she ever [D7]mentioned a [G]man named Buford [C]Wilson
[G]What's your mama's [C]name child [G]what's your [D7]mama's [G]name

What's your mama's name child  what's your mama's name
Thirty some odd years ago a young man came to Memphis
Asking bout a rose that used to blossom in his world
People never took the time to mind the young man's questions
Till one day they heard him ask a little green eyed girl

What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name

Twenty some odd years ago a drunkard down in Memphis
Lost a month of life in labor to the county jail
Just because he asked a little green eyed girl a question
And offered her a nickels worth of candy if she'd tell

What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name

A year and some odd days ago an old man died in Memphis
Just another wayward soul the county'd have to pay
Inside the old man's ragged coat they found a faded letter
It said you have a daughter and her eyes are Wilson green

What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
