Intro
F# A B F#

F#I remember it all very well lookin' back
E It was the summer I turned eighteen
BWe lived in a one room, rundown shack
D On the outskirts of New Orleans
F#We didn't have money for food or rent
E To say the least we were hard pressed
BThen Mama spent every last penny we had
D To buy me a dancin' dress
F#Mama washed and combed and curled my hair
B F#and she painted my eyes and lips then I stepped into a satin
B F#dancin' dress that had a split on the side clean up to my hip
F# B F#It was red velvet trim and it fit me good
F#Standin' back from the lookin' glass
B F#There stood a woman where a half grown kid had stood
D E F#She said here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
A B F# Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
F# EMama dabbed a little bit of perfume on my neck
And she kissed my cheek
B/D# DThen I saw the tears wellin' up in her troubled eyes
When she started to speak
F#She looked at a pitiful shack
EAnd then she looked at me and took a ragged breath
B/D# She said your Pa's run off and I'm real sick
D And the baby's gonna starve to death
F#She handed me a heart shaped locket that said
E"To thine own self be true"
B/D# And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across
D the toe of my high heeled shoe
F#It sounded like somebody else that was talkin'
A# D#MAskin' Mama what do I do
BShe said just be nice to the gentlemen Fancy
C# And they'll be nice to you
D E F# She said, here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
A B F# Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
A B DLord forgive me for what I do, but if you want out
EWell it's up to you
D C# F#Now don't let me down now your Mama's gonna move you uptown
F#Well that was the last time I saw my Mama
EThe night I left that rickety shack
B/D#The welfare people came and took the baby
D Mama died and I ain't been back
F#But the wheel of fate had started to turn
EAnd for me there was no way out
B/D#And it wasn't very long 'til I knew exactly
D What my Mama'd been talkin' about
F# EI knew what I had to do but I made myself this solemn vow
B/D#That I's gonna be a lady someday
DThough I didn't know when or how
F#I couldn't see spending the rest of my life
A# D#mWith my head hung down in shame you know
BI might have been born just plain white trash
C# But Fancy was my name
D E F# Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
A B F# Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down
(F#)It wasn't long after a benevolent man
(E)Took me off the street
(B)And one week later I was pourin' his tea
(F#)In a five room hotel suite
(F#)I charmed a king, a congressman
And an occasional aristocrat Then I got me a Georgia mansion In an elegant New York townhouse flat
F# A B (F#)And I ain't gone back
F# BNow in this world there's a lot of self-righteous hippocrits
F# That call me bad
And criticize Mama for turning me out
B F# No matter how little we had
But though I ain't had to worry 'bout nothin'
A# D#m For nigh on fifteen years
BWell, I can still hear the desperation in my poor
C# Mama's voice ringin' in my ears
D E F#"Here's your one chance Fancy, don't let me down."
A B F# Oh. "Here's your one chance Fancy, don't let me down."
A B "Lord, forgive me for what I do
DBut if you want out
EWell, it's up to you
D C# F#Now don't let me down hon, your mama's gonna move you uptown."
And I guess she did Outro same as intro
