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 Asking about 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 drunk 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 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
