or
Tom T. Hall

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

Daddy says come on down to Tootsie's and have yourself a beer
Mama's in the kitchen standin' there in tears
My mama love my daddy but it's breaking up our home
She got Jesus on the radio and daddy 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

Daddy says come on down...
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
Daddy says come on down...
