    Lyrics

    Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
    You know it drove mama crazy bein' a trucker's wife
    The part she couldn't handle was the bein' alone
    I guess she needed more to hold than just the telephone
    Papa called mama each and every night
    Just to ask her how she was and if us kids were all right
    Mama would wait for that call to come in
    But when Daddy'd hang up she was gone again

    Chorus

    Momma 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 and it was just us kids
    He had a dozen roses and a bottle of wine
    If he was lookin to surprise her he was doin' fine
    I heard him cry for mama up and down the hall
    Then I heard the bottle break against the bedroom wall
    That ol' Diesel engine made an eerie sound
    When Papa fired it up and headed into town.

    Well, the picture in the 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 brakes, and he was shifting gears.

    Chorus

    Momma 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
