Garth Brooks - Papa Loved Mama Chords

Learn song with the online tabulature player

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

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

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

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.....

Mama's in the graveyard papa's in the pen

Mama's in the graveyard papa's in the pen
