| D / G / | % | % | A / / / | | D / G / | % | D / A / | D A D - | First thing I remember knowin' was that lonesome whistle blowin' And a young un's dream of growin' up to ride. On a freight train leavin' town, not knowin' where I was bound No one could steer me right, but mama tried. Was the only rebel child from a family meek and mild Mama seemed to know what lay in store In spite of all my Sunday learnin' for the bad I kept on turnin' Mama couldn't hold me anymore. Chorus Chords |D / / /|C / D /|Bm / / / |A / / / | |D / / D7|G / D /|D / A /|D A D - | And I turned 21 in prison, doin' life without parole No one could steer me right, but mama tried, mama tried Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleadin' I denied That leaves no one but me to blame cause mama tried. Dear old daddy rest his soul, left my mom a heavy load She tried so very hard to fill his shoes Workin' hours without rest, wanted me to have the best She tried to raise me right, but I refused.
