D G D G The first thing I remember knowin' was a lonesome whistle blowin', D G A7 And a youngun's dream of growin' up to ride, D G D G On a freight train leavin' town, not knowin' where I'm bound. D A7 D And no one could change my mind but Momma Tried. D G D G One and only Rebel child from a fam'ly meek and mild D G A7 My momma seemed to to know what lay in store, D G D G 'Spite all my Sunday learnin' towards the bad I kept on turnin', D A7 D 'Til momma couldn't hold me anymore. Chorus N.C. D G D And I turned twenty-one in prison doin' life without parole, Bm A7 No one could steer me right but Mamma Tried, Momma Tried D G D Momma Tried to raise me better but her pleading I denied A7 D And that leaves only me to blame, cause Momma Tried Verse 3: D G D G Dear ole' daddy, rest his soul left my mom a heavy load, D G A7 She tried so very hard to feel his shoes, D G D G Workin' hours without rest, wanted me to have the best D G A7 She tried to raise me right but I refused.
