What's Your Mama's Name
recorded by Tanya Tucker
written by Dallas Frazier and Earl Montgomery
C                              G           D7     G
What's your mama's name child  what's your mama's name
            D7              C                 G
Thirty some odd years ago a young man came to Memphis
              D7                C              G
Asking bout a rose that used to blossom in his world
             D7               C                    G
People never took the time to mind the young man's questions
                  D7                                G
Till one day they heard him ask a little green eyed girl
                   C          D7                 G           
What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
              C            G                D7
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
G            D7          G                C  
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
G                  C          G           D7     G
What's your mama's name child what's your mama's name
            D7              C                G
Twenty some odd years ago a drunkard down in Memphis
                D7            C             G
Lost a month of life in labor to the county jail
             D7                C                 G
Just because he asked a little green eyed girl a question
                  D7                              G
And offered her a nickels worth of candy if she'd tell
Repeat #2
                D7              C               G
A year and some odd days ago an old man died in Memphis
             D7               C                G
Just another wayward soul the county'd have to pay
               D7                C                  G
Inside the old man's ragged coat they found a faded letter
                   D7                               G
It said you have a daughter and her eyes are Wilson green
Repeat #2
