Papa Loved Mama

Garth Brooks

Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
You know it drove mama crazy being a trucker's wife
The part she couldn't handle was the being alone
            C                               B7
I guess she needed more to hold than just a telephone
Papa called mama each & every night
Just to ask her how she was & if us kids were alright
Mama would wait for that call to come in
            C                    B7         E7
But when daddy'd hang up she was gone again

chorus.... #1   A7
                Mama was a looker Lord how she shined
                Papa was a good'n but the jealous kind
                Papa loved mama, mama loved men
                 Em                      B7           E7
                Mama's in the graveyard papa's in the pen

Well it was bound to happen & one night it did
Papa came home & it was just us kids
He had a dozen roses & a bottle of wine
If he was looking to surprise us he was doing fine
I heard him cry for mama up & 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 & headed into town

chorus... #2    Well the picture in teh paper showed the scene real well
                Papa's rig was buried in the local Motel
                The desk clerk said he saw it all real clear
                He never hit the breaks & he was shifting gears

chorus... #1.....

Em                      B7            E7
Mama's in the graveyard papa's in the pen
Mama's in the graveyard papa's in the pen
