Papa Loved Mama--David Allan Coe
written by Garth Brooks and Kim Williams
Corrections welcome (and yes, I'm pretty sure it's a different key than Garth's)


Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
You know it drove mama crazy bein' a trucker's wife
The part she couldn't take was the bein' alone
             B                               A7
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 us kids was alright
Mama would wait for that call to come in
      B                       A7        D      
When Daddy'd hang up she'd be gone again

Mama was a looker, Lord how she shined
Daddy was a good'un but the jealous kind
G                                G-G/F#-G-G/F#-G
Papa loved Mama, Mama loved men
D                        A7             D
Mama's in the graveyard, Papa's in the pen

Well 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 lookin' to surprise us he was doin' fine
I heard him cry for Mama up and down the hall
Then I heard a bottle break against the bedroom wall
That old diesel engine made an eerie sound
When Papa fired it up and headed into town


Well the picture in the paper showed the scene real well
Papa's rig was burried in the local motel
The desk clerk said he saw it all real clear
He never hit the brakes and he was shiftin' gears
