George Jones - What's Your Mama's Name? lyrics

(Dallas Frazier - Earl Montgomery)
Thirty some odd years ago a young man came to Memphis
Askin' 'bout a rose that used to blossom in his world
People never took the time to mind the young man's questions
Until one day they heard him ask a little green eyed girl
What's your mama's name, child, what's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
What's your mama's name, child, what's your mama's name?
Twenty some odd years ago a drunkard down in Memphis
Lost a month of life and labored to the county jail
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/george-jones/a-picture-of-me-nothing-ever-hurt-me/whats-your-mamas-name.html]
Just because he asked a little green eyed girl a question
And offered her a nickel's worth of candy if she'd tell
A year and some odd days ago an old man died in Memphis
Just another wayward soul the county had to claim
Inside the old man's ragged coat they found a faded letter
That said you got a daughter and her eyes are Wilson green
What's your mama's name, child, what's your mama's name
Does she ever talk about a place called New Orleans
Has she ever mentioned a man named Buford Wilson
What's your mama's name, child, what's your mama's name?
What's your mama's name child, what's your mama's name?...
