Mama Was A Preacher Man

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album In a Gospel Way (1974).

Mama was a preacher man, mama was God's right hand

I remember when daddy died, he said the Lord was by his side
With his last breath he said, "I'm going to the promised land"
That's when mama told us all that she had heard the call
And mama would be a preacher man

Far as I can remember back, mama was a woman that dressed in black
With the soul filled full of gospel and the Bible in her hand
She would go from town to town spreading God's word all around
Yes, mama was a real strong preacher man

Mama was a preacher man, mama was God's right hand
Mama really knew just how to reach way out
Mama was a preacher man, mama was God's right hand
Mama knew what the holy word was all around

I sit there on the very first row as she pleaded to lost souls
Telling them about Jesus there in the holy land
Although mama past away, she still lives on today
Yes, mama was an old time preacher man

Mama was a preacher man, mama was God's right hand
Mama really knew just how to reach way out
Mama was a preacher man, mama was God's right hand
Mama knew what the holy word was all around
Mama was a preacher man
