Charlie Rich

Charlie Rich - Golden Slipper Rose

rate me

(Curly Putman)

Now mama wore those skin tight dresses all the time

She worked at the Golden Slipper Cafe every night

But mama loved me and sister and we both loved her so

But everone called mama Golden Slipper Rose.

Now mama drank and mama laughed and danced all night

She made us go to school both taught us wrong from right

And tucked us in with a kiss each night and loved and watched us grow

Still everone called mama Golden Slipper Rose.

Looked up to by some and looked down on by many

Loved by just a few so her life goes

Still everone called mama Golden Slipper Rose.

Now the preacher reads a line that fits mama like a bluff

He said a woman like this woman was born to be loved

And as they close the lid on mama's life and the town looks down its nose

Heaven waits to welcome home Golden Slipper Rose.

Heaven waits to welcome home Golden Slipper Rose...
