      Merle Haggard - Mama Tried Música y Letra

      The first thing I remember knowing, was a lonesome whistle blowing
      And a young un's dream of growing up to ride
      On a freight train leaving town not knowing where I'm bound
      No-one could change my mind but mama tried.
      
      One and only rebel child from a family, meek and mild
      My Mama seemed to know what lay in store
      Despite all my Sunday learning towards the bad, I kept on turning
      'Til 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 only me to blame 'cos 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
      She tried to change 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 only me to blame 'cause mama tried...
