I wish I`d known the man a little better that turned my mama on He was always laughing and sang a bright sweet song I wish I`d known the man a little better that turned my mama on He musta been a heck of a man `cause Mama was a lady don`t ya know Mama seemed to forget the things that Grandma Kate had always told her She ran away one night with the traveling man They bought gas at Rita`s Truck Stop and drove to DeSoto County But he brought her home with a ring upon her hand Mama`s told me how the fever took him when I was barely five But I remember him pitching me up and catching me And I love to sit and listen to her tell me about my daddy She says he thought the sun must surely rise and set in me I wish I`d known the man a little better that turned my mama on He musta been a heck of a man `cause Mama was a lady don`t ya know I wish I`d known the man a little better that turned my mama on He musta been a heck of a man `cause Mama was a lady don`t ya know
