Mama Tried

  		

Intro: D A D 

    D                      G 
The first thing I remember knowin 
         D                G 
Was that lonesome whistle blowin' 
      D 
And a youngin's dream 
                 A 
Of growin' up to ride 
     D                     G 
On a freight train leavin' town 
    D                   G 
Not knowin' where I was bound 
D                      A   
No one could change my mind 
         D 
But mama tried 

        D          G 
Was the only rebel child 
       D               G 
From a family meek and mild 
D 
Mama seemed to know 
            A 
What lay in store 
            D 
In spite of all my 
       G 
Sunday learnin' 
        D             G 
For the bad I kept on turnin' 
    D             A          D 
And mama couldn't hold me anymore 

             D 
And I turned 21 in prison 
      G              D 
Doin' life without parole 
   Bm 
No one could steer me right 
                     A           A7 
But mama tried, mama tried, mama tried 
     D 
Mama tried to raise me better 
        G            D 
But her pleadin' I denied 
                       A 
That leaves only me to blame 
            D 
'Cause mama tried  

D A D 

         D              G 
Dear old daddy rest his soul 
        D           G 
Left my mom a heavy load 
    D 
She tried so very hard 
            A 
To fill his shoes 
        D             G 
Workin' hours without rest 
       D              G 
Wanted me to have the best 
        D                 A 
Oh, she tried to raise me right 
        D 
But I refused 

             D 
And I turned 21 in prison 
      G              D 
Doin' life without parole 
   Bm 
No one could steer me right 
                     A           A7 
But mama tried, mama tried, mama tried 
     D 
Mama tried to raise me better 
        G            D 
But her pleadin' I denied 
                       A 
That leaves only me to blame 
            D 
'Cause mama tried

                       A 
That leaves only me to blame 
            D 
'Cause mama tried
