Frank,

You would get a better response to this if you started a new thread and named it Lyr/Chord Req: Sweet Mama(Papa's Getting Mad)

Also have a look at the thread called Lyr/Chords Req: Big Bad Bill Is Sweet William. It mentions another album of Emmet Miller's, and also Leon Redbone's version of that song.

You can hear this recording of this song, by Emmett Miller & His Georgia Crackers, at RedHotJazz.com:


SWEET MAMA, PAPA'S GETTING MAD
Fred Rose, George A. Little, Peter L. Frost

Now my sweet mama packed her grip and started away,
Said she was leavin' town.
Now if I had only thought and asked her to stay,
She might have set that satchel down.
Now I'm feelin' awfully lonesome and blue
Since my mama went away.
Now if I had only thought and asked her to stay,
She might have set that satchel down.
Sweet mama, papa's getting mad.

I know the sweetest peaches don't grow on trees.
I know the sweetest honey don't come from the bees.
I'm tired o' list'nin' to your correction.
You'd better find yourself some good soul-searchin'.

Sweet mama, papa's done gone mad.
I never thought I'd, I'd ever feel so bad.
You flirted with the butcher. You flirted with the baker,
But now you're flirtin' with the undertaker.
Sweet mama, papa's done gone mad.

Sweet mama, papa's done gone mad.
I never thought I'd, I mean, I'd ever feel so bad, O Lord.
You flirted with the butcher. You flirted with the baker,
But now you flirtin' with the undertaker.
Sweet mama, papa's done gone mad.
