    Lyrics

    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

    [Chorus:]
    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 Bueferd Wilson
    What's your mama's name child
    What's your mama's name

    Twenty some odd years ago
    A drunk went 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
    So the county had to claim
    Inside the old mans ragged coat
    They found a faded letter
    It said you have a daughter
    And her eyes are Wilson green

    [Chorus]
    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 Bueferd Wilson
    What's your mama's name child
    What's your mama's name
