What's Your Mama's Name, Child?

What's your mama's name, child?
What's your mama's name?
 
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 labor
To the county jail.
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.
It said you have 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?
