Tanya Tucker - Man That Turned My Mama On lyrics

I wish I'd known the man a little better
That turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man
'cause mama was a lady don't you know

Mama was no prude but she was proper
Never wore her dress too short
She didn't care if you did
But she'd have never taken a drink
Grandma Kate did the best she could
To see mama grew up right
So she'd be fittin' one day for courtin'
And to wear some gentleman's ring

I wish I'd known the man a little better
That turned my mama on
He was always laughing
And singing the right sweet song
I wish I'd known the man a little better
The turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man
'Cause mama was a lady don't you know

I hear he came to town one day
In a rusty old '49 Ford
Selling lady's shoes and assorted greeting cards
He was killing good looking
And easy to like
And turning all the ladies' heads
But he saw mama first
And Lord knows how some of them travelin men are

I wish I'd known the man a little better
That turned my mama on
He was always laughing
And singing the right sweet song
I wish I'd known the man a little better
The turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man
'Cause mama was a lady don't you know

Mama seemed to forget the things
That Grandma Kate had always told her
She ran away one night with a traveling man
They bought gas at Rita's truck stop
And drove to Dasota 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 5
But I remember him pitchin' me up
And catchin' me
And I love to sit and listen to her
Tell me about my daddy
She says he thought the sun would surely
Rise and set in me

I wish I'd known the man a little better
That turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man
'cause mama was a lady don't you know
I wish I'd known the man a little better
The turned my mama on
He must have been a heck of a man
'Cause mama was a lady don't you know
