The Man That Turned My Mama On  Tanya Tucker

I wish I'd known[C] the man a little better that turned my mama o[F]n[C]
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know
Mama was no prude but she [C]was proper never [F]wore her dress too [C]short
She didn't care if you did but [G7]she'd never taken a [C]drink
Grandma Kate did the best she could to [F]see mama grew up [C]right
So she'd be fitting one [G7]day for courting and to [F]wear some gentleman's [C]ring
I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on
People was always laughing and [G7]sang a right sweet [C]song
[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know
[C]I hear he came to town one day in a [F]rusty old '49 [C]Ford
Selling ladies shoes and [G7]assorted greeting [C]cards
He was killer good looking and easy to like and [F]turning all the ladies [C]heads
But he saw mama first and [G7]Lord knows how some of [F]them traveling men [C]are
[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know
[C]Mama seemed to forget the things that grandma [F]Kate had always told [C]her
She ran away one night [G7]with that traveling [C]man
They bought gas at Reba's Truck Stop and [F]drove to Desoto [C]County
But he brought her [G7]home with a ring [F]upon her [C]hand
[C]Mama's told me how the fever took him [F]when I was barely [C]five
But I remember him pitching me [G7]up and catching [C]me
And I love to sit and listen to her [F]tell me about my [C]daddy
She says he thought the [G7]sun would surely [F]rise and set in [C]me
[C]I wish I'd known the man a little better that [F]turned my mama [C]on
He must have been a heck of a man cause [G7]mama was a lady don't you [F]know
