Lyrics Mama Tried

First thing I remember knowin' was a lonesome whistle blowin'
And a young gun's dream of growin' up to ride
On a freight train leavin' town not knowin' where I'm bound
And no one could change my mind but mama tried
One and only rebel child from a family meek and mild
My mama seemed to know what lay in store
In spite all my Sunday learnin' towards the bad
I kept on turnin'
'Til mama couldn't hold me anymore
I turned twenty-one 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 pleading I denied
That leaves only me to blame 'cos 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
And I turned twenty-one 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 pleading I denied
That leaves only me to blame 'cos Mama tried
