Lyrics

Momma never wanted me
From the very first day
But Poppa said I was his girl
So that’s why I stayed
He taught me everything I know
While Momma ran away
But he couldn’t help me that rainy day
With that man who got away
 
Oh no...
 
My man was tall and lovin
I heated up just like an oven
He wanted me to live with him
In everlasting sin But Poppa said my girl
Your momma was a tramp
So I told my man no
And that night we broke hands
 
He was my man, my one and only
He hasn’t bothered to telephone me
He was my man, he got away
From Jewanda Faye
 
Bubba, I thought you loved me
But I was wrong right from the start
Cuz you got in your pickup truck that day
And you drove off with my heart
He left me the next mornin
Before the sun had risen
That last I heard about him
He was spending time in prison
 
Everyone help me oh...
 
He was my man, my one and only
He hasn’t bothered to telephone me
He was my man, he got away
From Jewanda Faye He was my man, my one and only
He hasn’t bothered to telephone me
He was my man, he got away
From poor Jewanda Faye
 
I never see the sunshine now
My tears, they flow like rain
You know, even if he rots in prison
I'll never forget his name
