WHAT'S YOUR MAMA'S NAME CHILD (Dallas Frazier / Earl Montgomery) Tanya Tucker - 1973 Bobby Bare - 1973 George Jones - 1973 Brush Arbor - 1973 Also recorded by: Tammy Wynette; Philomena Begley 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 Till 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 man's ragged coat they found a faded letter That 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
