    She lived at the end of the street
    in a halfway decent house
    that was partly obscured
    by some big old vine-covered tree
    that grew wild in the front yard

    There was an invisible red light
    which shone brightly on the front porch
    for all the righteous people to see

    She was a painted~tainted lady
    a dirty two-bit whore
    havin' her sinful way
    with all the good men of the neighbourhood

    Cheap trash, in her skin tight clothes
    stiletto heels, brightly painted nails
    make-up two inches thick, bee-hive hairdo
    struttin' her stuff
    givin' decent women a bad name

    Why hell, that woman was
    amoral/immoral
    and everything in between
    she was just plain no good

    But I liked her, loved her
    admired her
    I knew life had dragged her down
    and she was pickin' herself back up
    the only way she knew

    I knew they were all wrong
    they didn't see the real person
    they only saw the "whore"

    But she was no whore
    she was just a fallen angel
    tryin' to dust off her wings
    and learnin' to fly again

    My Mama was a lady
