Mama Was A Hippie

by Mike Loftis

Mama was a hippie Daddy was a cowboy
When they met down in New Orleans
She was turned on by his cowboy hat
And he liked her faded jeans
When he walked up and asked her to dance
She didn’t know what he was saying
She said “are you some kind of crazy cowboy
Man there ain’t no music playing

He said you can be my Bobbie McGee
And I’ll be your Marlboro Man
We’ll ride off into the sunset
In your psychedelic VW van
There’s a whole lot of world out there to see
And I may never see it all
But right now I see that I’m falling in love
And I ain’t got much farther to fall

Mama was a lover Daddy was a fighter
And they had their share of fights
But they would make sure they were loving again
Long before they turned out the lights
No one that ever knew ‘em could ever say
The love that they shared was common
But I thank the good Lord every day
For the words Daddy said to mama
