*************** SAN FRANCISCO MABEL JOY *************** performed by Waylon Jennings. Capo on the 3rd fret. Verse 1: A D A His daddy was a honest man,a red dirt Georgia farmer E His mama lived a short life having kids and bailing hay A D A He had fifteen years of ache inside to wander E A He jumped a freight in Waycross and wound up in L.A. Verse 2: A D A The cold nights had no pity on that Waycross Georgia farm boy E Most days he went hungry,then the summer came A D A He met a girl known on the strip as San Francisco Mabel Joy E A Destitutions child born on an L.A. street called shame Verse 3: D A Growing up came quietly in the arms of Mabel Joy E Laughter found their mornings it brought new meaning to his life D A The night before she left sleep came and found that Waycross country boy E A With dreams of Georgia cotton and California wine Verse 4: D A Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door E A right cross sent him reeling and put him face down on the floor D A Inplace of Mabel Joy he found a merchant mad marine E He said your Georgia neck is red,but sonny you're still green Verse 5: A D A He turned twenty-one in grey rock federal prison E The judge had no mercy on this Waycross,Georgia boy A D A Staring at those four grey wall in silence,Lord he listened E To the midnight freight he knew could take him back to Mabel Joy Verse 6: D A Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door E With a bullet in his side he cried,have you seen Mabel Joy D A Stunned and shaken someone said she don't live here no more E She left this house four years ago she was looking for D Some Georgia farm boy Thanks to David M.
