Papa Loved Mama

Writers: Garth Brooks & Kim Williams


Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
You know It drove mama crazy being a truckers wife
The part she couldn't handle was being alone
I guess she needed more to hold than just a telephone
Papa called mama each and every night
Just to ask her how she was and If the kids we're alright
Mama would wait for that call to come but when daddy hangedup she was
gone again

Chorus: Mama was a looker lord how she shined
        Papa was the goodin but the jealous kind
        Papa loved mama mama loved men
        Mama's In the Graveyard papa's In the pen

 Vs.2: We'll It was bound to happen and one night It did
       Papa came home and It was just us kids
       He had a dozen Roses and a bottle of wine
       If he was looking to suprise us he was doing fine
       I heard him cry for mama up and down the hall
       Then I heard a bottle break against the bedroom wall
       That old chevy engine made an errie sound
       When papa fired It up and headed Into town
Chorus 2: We'll the picture In the paper showed the scene real well
          Papa's rig was buried at a local motel
          The desk clerk said he saw It all real clear
          He never hit the brakes and was shiftin gears

 Chorus 1: Yea mama  was a looker lord how she shined
           Papa was the goodin but the jealous kind
           Papa loved mama Mama loved men
           Mama's In the Graveyard Papa's In the Pen

Yea Mama's In the Graveyard, Papa's In the pen!!:):)
