Mama Tried (Remastered LP Version) - Grateful Dead

The first I remember knowing

 

Was that lonesome whistle blowing

 

And a youngin's dream

Of growing up to ride

 

On a freight train leaving town

 

Not knowing 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 learning

For the bad I kept on turning

And mama couldn't hold me anymore

 

And I turned twenty-one in prison

Doing 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 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

 

Working hours without rest

 

Wanted me to have the best

 

Oh she tried to raise me right

But I refused

 

And I turned twenty-one in prison

Doing 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 no one but me to blame

Cause mama tried

 

And I turned twenty-one in prison

Doing 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 no one but me to blame

Cause mama tried

 

That leaves no one but me to blame

Cause mama tried
