G     D/F#           Em   Em
  Is right here on the inside
G   D/F#           Em   Em  [pause]

         C   Em   D          G
She was sixteen, never knew more
         C         Em            D              G
Than the backporch swing and the counter at the dime store
C  Em    D         G
    What do you know
C  Em  D  G
[instrumental]

          C   Em       D         G
She had dreams, dreams of many things
  C            Em       D         G
A life on the road and all that brings
C   Em          D      G
Ohhhh, there's got to be more

G    D/F#           Em        C    D   D   D [stop.]
  Mama, won't you please let me go

Wave goodbye at the end of spring
Drop down a graduation gown and a high school ring
Echo on the gym floor
[instrumental]

A life made from cards and sticks
The kind of broke that money can't fix
Ohhhh, this road'll take me somewhere
And I'll know it when I get there
[instrumental]

Ohhhh, what does this life have in store
I need to know if there's any more
I need to know
Mama, won't you please let me go
Mama, won't you please let me go

Day to day, and town to town
Mama writes, "I can never track her down"
She's gonna find what she's looking for
[instrumental]

Thirty-one when she finally makes it home
With the wisdom of the world, a woman fully grown
Oh I never needed more
Than this counter at the dime store
Than this counter at the dime store
[instrumental]

Ohhhh, what does this life have in store
I need to know if there's any more
I need to know
Mama, won't you please let me go
Mama, won't you please let me go
Mama, let me go...
[repeat and fade G D/F# Em C with ad lib vocals]

 an electric guitar and I only have an acoustic.  I know the notes are right,
 but I might be playing them on the wrong strings, as usual.]
