MY MOTHER WAS A LADY Marty Robbins Two drummers they were seated in a grand hotel one day While dining they were chatting in a sort of joking way There came a pretty waitress to bring the tray of food They spoke to her familiarly in a manner sort of rude At first she did not notice nor make the least reply When somethin' that was said to her brought teardrops to her eyes She turned on her tormentors, her cheeks were flamin' red Approaching as a picture these are the words she said My Mother was a lady and your's, I would allow You may have a sister who needs protection now I've come to this great city to find my brother, dear You would not dare insult me, sir, if brother Jack were here The two sat there in silence, their heads hung low in shame Forgive us, miss, we meant no harm, pray tell us what is your name She told him and he cried aloud I know your brother too We've been friends for many, many years and he oft times speaks of you Come go with me when I go back and if you'll only wed I'll take you to him as my bride, I've loved you since you said My Mother was a lady and your's, I would allow You may have a sister who needs protection now I've come to this great city to find my brother, dear You would not dare insult me, sir, if brother Jack were here
