    DGDG
    First thing I remember knowin' was a lonesome whistle blowin' 
    DGA7
    And a young-on's dream of growing up to ride 
    DGDG
    On a freight train leaving town, not knowing where I'm bound 
    DA7D
    And no one could change my mind, but Mama tried 
    One and only rebel child, from a family meek and mild
    Mama seemed to know what lay in store
    'Spite of all my Sunday learnin', toward the bad I kept on turnin'
    'Til Mama couldn't hold me anymore
    DGD
    And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole 
    GDA7
    No one could steer me right, but Mama tried, Mama tried 
    DGD
    Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied, 
    A7D
    that leaves only me to blame, 'cause Mama tried 
    Dear old Daddy rest his soul, he left my mom a heavy load
    She tried so very hard to fill his shoes
    Working hours without rest, she wanted me to have the best
    She tried to raise me right, but I refused
