"Daddy Had A Cardiac, Mama's Got A Cadillac " as written by Billy Wayne Yates, Craig Michael Wiseman and Rex Wiseman....
I grew up in what I thought was domestic bliss
I had a daddy and a mama and a brother and a sis
Never knew nothing 'bout the Finer things
We were livin' on weenies, beenies, and dreams
Daddy used to take alot of business trips
Promisin' us all a better life than this
Said it was a sacrifice he had to make
Right about then, mama dropped another plate

Well it turned out daddy wasn't nothin' but a snake
He had a half a dozen women, in a half a dozen states
Mama grew wiser as the years went by
She never said a word, kept it all inside
Well they found him face down in a motel room
Smellin' like liquor and a lover's perfume
Standing by the gravesite, mama was a wreck
Till the State-Farm man, handed her a fat check

Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
All of us kids done throwed away the tater sacks
Look at us now
Living that life
Daddy always promised us that he'd provide
Daddy's on a shady hill
Mama's in a Coupe Deville
Never have to worry 'bout another bill
Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac

Well it's been awhile now since it all went down
Mama's still a hero all over town
When the preacher does a serom about those who wait
Mama slips a hundred in the offerin' plate
Now, each and every year on the day he died
Mama dresses up for a Midnight Drive
Where she ever goes, she never does say
But, there's a Fresh set of tire track on daddy's grave

Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
All of us kids done throwed away the tater sacks
Look at us now
Living that life
Daddy always promised us that he'd provide
Daddy's on a shady hill
Mama's in a Coupe Deville
Never have to worry 'bout another bill
Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac

Daddy's on a shady hill
Mama's in a Coupe Deville
Never have to worry 'bout another bill
Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac

Daddy died smiling
But mama got the last laugh
Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac

Daddy had a cardiac
Mama got a Cadillac
