ONLY MAMA THAT'LL WALK THE LINE (Ivy J. Bryant) Connie Smith - 1968 Wendy Dawn - 1968 Wilma Burgess - 1968 Jean Shepard - 1969 Linda Ronstadt - 1969 Won't you tell me if you can what's the matter with a man When he starts a-stayin' out all night He's been a-steppin' outta line and a-messin' up my mind And don'tcha know that that ain't right 'Cause ever since I was a little bitty teeny girl He thought he was the only man in this whole world But now he bettter do some thinkin', then he'll find He's got the only mama that'll walk the line While I'm workin' every day, all he wants do is play I'm gettin' tired of bein' here alone And I'm a-comin' unglued from his funny little moods When he finally comes a-draggin' home 'Cause ever since I was a little bitty teeny girl He thought he was the only man in this whole world But now he bettter do some thinkin', then he'll find He's got the only mama that'll walk the line (Instrumental Break) I keep a-packin' up my clothes, but ev'rybody knows That I'm really just a-puttin' him on Now when I start a-walkin', that's a when you'll hear him squawkin' And a-beggin' me to come back home 'Cause ever since I was a little bitty teeny girl He thought he was the only man in this whole world But now he bettter do some thinkin', then he'll find He's got the only mama that'll walk the line He's got the only mama that'll walk the line (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2012)
