lyrics:  

She was 18 and pretty
Heading out to New York City
Her parents hoped it wouldn't turn out this way
A Mormon girl, would you believe?
Seeing the Dead on New Year's Eve
Her parents hoped they'd never see this day

Now as the years go on
She finds herself to be a mom
With a son to write her a song
My Jackmormon mother, my Jackmormon ma
Feeling young and beautiful with the man who'd be my pa
Lookin back on the faith in 1968
Those straight city streets by the Great Salt Lake
It wasn't the place or the time
She best be movin along
That's how she became my Jackmormon mom

She decided to settle down
In the Grateful Dead's hometown
At least her parents liked her ex-Catholic man
They got a big red car
And he'd strum on his guitar
At least her parents tried to understand

Now as the years go on
She finds herself to be a mom
With a son to write her a song
My Jackmormon mother, my Jackmormon ma
Feeling young and beautiful with the man who'd be my pa
Lookin back on the faith in 1968
Those straight city streets by the Great Salt Lake
It's time to taste a different wine
She best be movin along

Lookin back on the faith in 1968,
Those straight city streets by the Great Salt Lake
It wasn't the place or the time
She best be movin along--

That's how she became my Jackmormon mom
I heard the Tablernacle Choir sing a song
That the pioneers would sing as they moved along
All is well by the ocean swell and I love my Jackmormon mom
