Subject: Heart song
From: John

I heard a real heart song on the radio while ago --NPR. It was of the Kitty Wells type, and was a woman speaking to her prospective mother-in-law. The first line--and I believe the title--was "Yes ma'am, he found me in a honky tonk." Anyone know the words to that one?

YES, MA'AM (HE FOUND ME IN A HONKY TONK)

Yes, ma'am, he found me in a honky-tonk,
And I'm sure I'm not the kind of girl you'd want your son to know.
Yes, ma'am, I know you think that it's all wrong,
And if he felt the way you do, I'd go back where I belong.

1ST BRIDGE:
Yes, I know he deserves the best and there's better girls than me.
And please don't quarrel with me. I love him, can't you see?
Yes, ma'am, he met me where the lights are low,
And I've seen the other side of town where good girls shouldn't go.

2ND BRIDGE:
Yes, I know he deserves the best and there's better girls than me.
And please don't quarrel with me. I love him, can't you see?
Yes, ma'am, I partied with the crazy crowd,
But someone just like your lovin' son helped to show me how.

TAG:
Yes someone just like your lovin' son helped to show me how

[Recorded by Leona Williams on "Honorary Texan" (YouTube) and by Miss Leslie and Her Juke-Jointers on "Honky Tonk Happy Hour: Live from the Continental Club" (YouTube).]
