INTRO: C


#1.
C
That crooked lawyer, that son of a gun, he took 
             G
my woman and away they run.
                                      Gm
She took my money and he took my car, and left me 
              C
stranded here behind these bars.
C
They're off having them a swinging spree, but I'm 
                  F
worried bout them swinging me.
                         C                G
Bars won't hold me but a little while, if mama don't 
            C
forget that file.



CHORUS:
         G
Oh, mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake (a sugar cake)

for your loving child.
                  C
Oh-ho-ho-ho, mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake 
                                        F
(a sugar cake) for your poor imprisoned child.
                Fm
Mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake (a sugar cake)..
C          A                       Dm
ohhhh, but mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, 
      G                       C
mama, mama, don't forget that file.



#2.
C
That crooked lawyer, that son of a gun, he said I 
             G
had the case all but won.
G
My baby said she'd testify for me, that I was innocent 
   C
as I could be.
C
And when she got up on the witness stand, she told 
                  F
the judge I was a guilty man.
                  C                   Gm
Hand in hand they left the trial, oh, mama, don't 
            C
forget that file.



CHORUS:
         G
Oh, mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake (a sugar cake)

for your loving child.
                  C
Oh-ho-ho-ho, mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake 
                                        F
(a sugar cake) for your poor imprisoned child.
                Fm
Mama bake (mama bake) a sugar cake (a sugar cake)..
C          A                       Dm
ohhhh, but mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, mama, 
      G                       C
mama, mama, don't forget that file.
