My Mother Was A Lady
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Written by E.B Marks Jr. and Joseph Stern
[3/4 time]

Two drummers they were seated in a grand hotel one day
F C D7 G7
While dining they were chatting in a sorta joking way
There came a pretty waitress to bring a tray of food
F C G7 C
They spoke to her familiarly in a manner sort of rude

At first she did not notice nor make the least reply
F C G7 C
When somethin' that was said to her brought teardrops to her eyes

She turned on her tormentors her cheeks were flaming red
F C G7 C
Approaching as a picture these are the words she said

My Mother was a lady and yours I would allow
You may have a sister who needs protection now
C7 F
I've come to this great city to find my brother dear
C G7 C
You would not dare insult me sir if brother Jack were here

The two sat there in silence their heads hung low in shame
F C G7 C
Forgive us miss we meant no harm pray tell us what is your name
C7 F
She told him and he cried aloud I know your brother too
C G7 C
We've been friends for many many years and he oft' times speaks of you
C7 F
Come go with me when I go back and if you'll only wed
C G7 C
I'll take you to him as my bride I've loved you since you said

repeat #3
