Capo 2

D                           G                D
Mama likes to listen to the grand old gospel time
D                                   A
Daddy is a cowboy drinkin' beer and wine
G             D        G                   D
Mama's in the kitchen, standin' there all alone
        G            D          A              D
She got Jesus on the radio and daddy's on the phone


Chorus:
           G               D             G               D
Daddy says come on down to Tootsie's and have yourself a beer
G             D                         A
Mama's in the kitchen standin' there in tears
   G             D              G               D
My mama loved my daddy but it's breaking up our home
        G            D         A              D
She got Jesus on the radio and Daddy's on the phone Mama don't like drinkin' and she don't understand Daddy's had a hard life a deeply troubled man It's honky tonk and gospel that's breaking up our home She got Jesus on the radio and daddy on the phone I came home one evening there was mama on her knees Big old tears of gospel joy running down her cheeks She says you don't have to worry son we are not alone I got Jesus on the radio and Jesus on the phone Chorus
