Marty Robbins - That's All Right Lyrics

Well, that's all right mama
That's all right with you
That's all right mama, just anyway you do
That's all right, that's all right
That's all right mama, anyway you do

My mama, she done told me, papa done told me too
"Son, that gal you're foolin' with
She ain't no good for you"
But that's all right, that's all right
That's all right mama, anyway you do

I'm leaving town tomorrow
Leaving town for sure
Then you won't be bothered with me hanging 'round your door
But that's all right, that's all right
That's all right mama, anyway you do

I ought to mind my papa, guess I'm not too smart
If I was, I'd leave you, go before you break my heart
But, that's all right, that's all right
That's all right mama, anyway you do

That's all right mama
Mama that's all right
Mama that's all right...

Marty Robbins That's All Right Comments
  1. Irene Mccann

    I should say the way he sang his version from marty,and Elvis 's has more oumph in it.

  2. Irene Mccann

    Marty was a genius, and boy could he sing, I didn't know he sang this and going by the date he recorded it , I would say That Elvis took the way he sang from Marty, the only difference being that Elvis's version has more long in it ( if you get my meaning), both great at it anyway.

    So the story goes, Elvis' star was on the rise. He was on the same bill as Marty. Marty came into his dressing room and asked him to play "That's All Right". He listened and asked him to play it again. Elvis being a Marty Robbins fan complied. Shortly afterward, this record came out. So basically, what I am trying to say is....Marty Robbins was a piece of shit.

  4. Dino Seneca

    Seems like he stole the arrangement from Elvis, dammit

    Cody Grimes

    Back then, many artists recorded the same song with the same musical arrangement. Early rock'n'roll man.

    Richard Harper

    They both got it from a ghost writer like how taylor swift and wiz kahlefa do. Think people with good voices are talented in the brain? Hahahha no...


    They Got it from a early blues singer Arthur Crudup.


    The arrangement sounds like Hank Snow to me, sounds like he used the Rainbow Ranch Boys somehow


    @Mary Cage That's absolutely not even close to being true.

  5. Stephen Stone

    Elvis made this song his own but Marty Robbins did a class version. He must have heard Elvise's version prior to recording this song because it's remarkably close to presley s style. Nevertheless it's fab.

    Kevin Faulk

    Stephen Stone, if you read George Klein's book, you discover that Elvis actually showed Robbins how to play it and was more than a little miffed when Robbins went on and recorded it.

    David Alexandert

    Kevin Faulk Marty Robbins recorded it first and it was out on radio one or two years before Elvis recorded it.

    Kevin Faulk

    David Alexandert that is incorrect. Elvis' version released in July of 1954. Robbins recorded his December of the same year.

    Master Kota

    David Alexandert Yeah you’re terribly wrong 😂 It’s basic R&R knowledge that everyone knows, Elvis’s recorded his cover first.

    On this day in 1955 {February 16th} Elvis performed at the Odessa Senior High School Field House, Odessa, Texas...
    In the audience of 4,000 was a local singer named Roy Orbison; years later the Big O would state 'his energy was incredible, his instinct was just amazing'...
    At the time Elvis didn't have a record on any national chart; but on Billboard's Best Sellers Country chart Marty Robbins was at #11 with his covered version of "That's All Right"...
    R.I.P. Mr. Robbins, born Martin David Robinson, (1925 - 1982) and to The King (1935 - 1977)...

    David Alexandert

    Actually this song was Marty Robbins first top 10 hit. Marty Robbins did this sing back in 51 or 52. When he moved to Nashville in 52 he had a little baby blue Jaguar convertible. And painted on the back was "That's all right Momma". That story that Whispering Bill Anderson tells

  7. sauquoit13456

    On this day in 1949 {February 2nd} RCA Victor records released its first 45 RPM records; and one of the seven records released that day was "That's All Right Mama" by Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup...
    Five years later in 1954 Elvis' covered version was his first release on Sun Records...
    In 1955 Marty Robbins took it to #7 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart...
    Arthur Crudup passed away on March 28th, 1974 at age 68...
    R.I.P. Mr. Crudup, Mr. Robbins {1925 - 1982}, and The King {1935 - 1977}

  8. Rex Tomlinson

    This song is always categorized as Rockabilly, but Marty's version is pure old Country blues. What a great record!
