    Exclamation Help!! Who sings this country song??

    Who sings the song, I think it is called, "Before Mamma Was Mamma"?
    I want to get the song but don't know who sings it or if that is the real name of the song.
    Thanks,
    Christina

    "'Fore She Was Mama" by Clay Walker

    ‘Bout ten years old, hide and seek
    I found me in the closet
    Ready or not I stumbled on
    And opened up that box of
    Yearbooks, letters, black and whites
    A hundred, maybe more
    Next thing I know my brothers and me
    Got ‘em scattered on the floor (Yeah)

    There was one of her, flippin’ the bird
    Sittin’ on a Harley
    And a few with some hairy hippie dude
    Turns out his name was Charlie
    Her hair, her clothes, her drinkin’ smokin’
    Had us boys confused
    I’ll never forget the day us nosey kids got introduced

    To Mama, ‘fore she was Mama
    In a string bikini, in Tijuana
    Won’t admit she smoked marijuana
    But I saw Mama, ‘fore she was Mama

    We put that box right where it was
    And never said a word
    But growin’ up got hard just tryin’
    Not to picture her
    In anything but aprons, dresses
    Mini-vans and church
    Oh and Daddy would have whooped our butts
    For diggin’ up that dirt

    On Mama, ‘fore she was Mama
    In a string bikini, in Tijuana
    She won’t admit she smoked marijuana
    But I saw Mama, ‘fore she was Mama

    We laugh and hang it over her head
    Right above her halo
    Her face turns red when we bring up
    That tie-dyed Winnebago
    She runs and hides and still denies
    That hip high rose tattoo
    She burned that box of forget-me-nots
    When she found out we knew

    About Mama, ‘fore she was Mama
    In a string bikini, in Tijuana
    Won’t admit she smoked marijuana
    But that was Mama, ‘fore she was Mama

    And there’s that one down in the Bahamas
    But that was Mama, ‘fore she was Mama

    You got me on this one. Are you sure its not "Boondocks" by Little Big Town?

    I feel no shame
    I'm proud of where I came from
    I was born and raised in the boondocks
    One thing I know
    No matter where I go
    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    And I can feel
    That muddy water running through my veins
    And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
    It sings to me and it sounds familiar

    (Chorus)

    And I can taste
    That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
    When it grows wild
    On the banks down at old camp creek
    Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing

    (Chorus)

    It's where I learned about living
    It's where I learned about love
    It's where I learned about working hard
    And having a little was just enough

    It's where I learned about Jesus
    And knowing where I stand
    You can take it or leave it, this is me
    This is who I am

    Give me a tin roof
    A front porch and a gravel road
    And that's home to me
    It feels like home to me

    (Chorus)

    I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night
    Church on Sunday morning

    (2x)
    You get a line, I'll get a pole
    We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
    (Down in the boondocks)
    Five-card poker on a Saturday night
    Church on Sunday morning

    Say a little prayer for me

    Martin Lee Gore of Depeche Mode has also performed "Down in the Boondocks; I bet that's not it. I'd bet a million dollars it's "Boondocks" by Little Big Town.

    No, in all honesty, I don't know squat! Just a little lucky. Have fun.
