Tanya Tucker What’s Your Mama’s Name, Child Lyrics

What’s your mama’s name child?
What’s your mama’s name?
Thirty some odd years ago a young man came to Memphis
Askin’ ’bout a rose that used to blossom in his world
People never took the time to mind the young man’s questions
Until 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 and labor to the county jail
Just because he asked a little green eyed girl a question
And offered her a nickel’s worth of candy if she’d tell
A year and some odd days ago an old man died in Memphis
Just another wayward soul the county had to claim
Inside the old mans 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?
What’s your mama’s name child?
What’s your mama’s name?
