The story is in the song.

DOOR MAT

My daddy treated Mama like a door mat
Me and little brother didn’t like that
We never understood what was going down

My daddy was the guy to fix your tv
And he could fix a Fender or a Peavey
But Daddy was the meanest man when it came to Mom.

My little brother looked just like my daddy
I looked like my mother but daddy didn’t like that did he?

My daddy wanted Mama in the kitchen
Or sewing on the clothes that she was stitchin’
He was always looking up but Mama’s always looking down

My little brother looked just like my daddy
I looked like my mother but daddy didn’t like that did he?

My mama’s lying there up on her death bed
Whispers to me that she’s got a secret
My daddy wasn’t Daddy, no my daddy wasn’t Daddy after all

Mama said a stranger up and raped her
Went ahead and married Daddy tho he hated her
Daddy never could forgive even tho he knew it wasn’t her fault

Repeat first verse..
