Well, my mama never turned her back on daddy
So my daddy's been out drinking since she died
Well, my daddy spends his time in dead man's alley
Just three blocks from jail and he just drunk bail
And that's where he'll be sleeping tonight
So some lady bought him bus fare back to Memphis
'Cause my granddad called and said that he would die
So my daddy took that bus on back to Memphis
But poor papa was late and grandpa died
And they never got to say goodbye
So he bought himself a black suit and tie
Well, my mama never turned her back on daddy
So my daddy's been out drinking since she died
Well, my daddy spends his time in dead man's alley
Just three blocks from jail and he just drunk bail
And that's where he'll be sleeping tonight
Well, some lady bought him bus fare back to Memphis
'Cause my granddad called and said that he would die
So my daddy took that bus on back to Memphis
But poor papa was late and grandpa died
And they never got to say goodbye
So he bought himself a black suit and tie
