    Badd9                           Add9
She came up from the country with a smile for everyone
    Badd9                         Add9
She left her blue horizon just to find another home
  Badd9                          Add9
A lonely girl whod traveled many days
  Baad9                       Add9
A lonely heart that could not find the way

    Aadd9      Abm7         F#m7
And she said, "Momma, its a hard life now youre gone"
Abm7          F#m7

Momma, its a sad and lonely life

  Badd9                         Add9
A misty morning rider, she came wandering through the hills
  Badd9                         Add9
A wandering soul appearing over rainy window sills
  Badd9                         Add9
A loser in her heart but in her face
  Badd9                     Add9
A smile for everyone under Gods grace


    Aadd9      Abm7         F#m7
And she said, "Momma, its a hard life now youre gone"

Midnight maiden madness, what to search for in this place?
Badd9                          Add9
Gateway to the city, night sky shadows on her face
  Baad9                        Add9
A lady lost in nowhere but her stare
           Badd9                    Add9
Leaves the world, her life to start somewhere

Excuse me for mistyping the Aadd9 chord. I noticed it didn't show up in blue lettering about halfway through the song, and that's because it is spelled Add9, not Aadd9. It's a carelessm mistake, and I apologize. I hope you can still learn the song well anyway.

*Careless.

Oh and one more thing. Ebm7b5 doesn't appear in blue lettering either. The chord is correct, and the tableture for it is as follows:

E--2-|
B--2-|
G--2-|
D--1-|
A----|
E----|

Basically an F#m with an Eb note on the D-string.
