There's a tape in one of the lorries where I work which has got a song on with the lyrics 'Papa was the kind of man, he always...' and 'mama was the kind of lady, she always...'. The fact it's on tape has made it hard for me to track down on the net, plus I can't remember much of the lyrics (but the guitar is awesome). So if anyone knows what song this is and would like to tell me, I would be eternally grateful! I'll repost if I remember anymore lyrics. Thanks!
Was it a really old blues song, if so it sounds like something by Ida Cox an old female blues artist from the 20s, but i have a feeling it might not be her. The words Mama and Papa seemed to feature in about 90% of her songs.
Sorry, I should have said it's on a compilation called 'Born to be Wild', and follows Smoking Gun by Robert Cray. And it's a male singer, and I think there's two guitars.
