I know ya' didn't want me mama when ya',
lay down 'cross my bed
I followed you through up to Duren Mississippi,
sinotopia's where it led
Found you in Tupelo workin' at a,
Jimmy Jungle store
You was sellin' pin up models and I was cuttin',
two by fours
Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow
Back in Coldwater they said you had,
come and gone
I missed you in Hernando they said you,
hadn't been gone long
Say you took 51 highway,
maybe Memphis bound
I'll bet I find ya' in Arkansas or some,
South Missouri town
Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow
I crossed the river at Kairo,
to one more bad luck town
I drove back through La Panto,
Mochtree and further on down
You might chance to see me,
on the edge of your town
I think about you mama when the,
snow comes driftin' down
Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow
You come like the dust,
you gone with the wind
I'm gonna keep trailin' ya' 'till I,
find you again
I got to Levenhoe but ya',
left your shotgun shack
Your sister on Southsea Avenue says you,
ain't never welcome back
Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow
Looked around Greenwood,
took a while to find your house
Strangers there said you had moved,
little bit further South
Hit the road again,
steady on your trail
It's a cold day in Mississippi but my,
hearts a burnin' hell
Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow
