[Verse]

D                          G
The first thing I remember know-in'
      D                 G
was a lonesome whist-le blow-in,
      D                    G             A
And a young-on's  dream of grow-in up to ride,
     D                     G
On a freight train leav-in town,
    D                 G
not know-in where I'm bound,
       D                   A               D
And no one could change my mind, but Ma-ma tried.

D                    G
One and on-ly reb-el child,
       D                G
From a fam-ily meek and mild,
   D               G                A
My ma-ma seemed to know what lay in store,
       D             G
Spite all my Sun-day learn-in'
            D             G
towards the bad I kept on turn-in,
    D               A            D
Til Ma-ma could-n't hold me an-y-more.


[Chorus]
D                                        G
And I turned twenty-one in pris-on do-in life with-out
   D     G                  D               A
pa-role, No one could steer me right but Ma-ma tried,
                  D
Mama tried. Ma-ma tried to raise me bet-ter,  but her
G           D                               A
plead-ing I de-nied, That leaves only me to blame,
            D
cause Ma-ma tried.


[Verse]

D                         G
Dear ol' Dad-dy, rest his soul,
        D            G
left my mom a heav-y load,
    D             G                A
She tried so very hard to fill his shoes,
        D               G
Work-in hou-rs with-out rest,
        D              G
Want-ed me to have the best,
    D                 A              D
She tried to raise me right but I re-fused


[Chorus]
D                                       G
And I turned twenty-one in prison do-in life with-out
   D        G                  D               A
pa-role, No one could steer me right but Ma-ma tried,
                  D
Mama tried. Ma-ma tried to raise me bet-ter,  but her
G           D
plead-ing I de-nied,
                       A
That leaves only me to blame cause Ma-ma tried..

I substitute the A7 chord using A instead. It sounds better for me.

I substituted the second G in the chorus to a Bm. Sounded closer to me.

I can see that, the Bm chord makes for an easy chord change. Great minds think a like, Thanks for the substitute chord Ü Ultimate Guitar is what makes the difference from the other Guitar Chord web site. We work together at correcting, and making Guitar Music, CORRECT Ü
