hey mama life   Ray Thomas

                        Hey Mama Life    (Ray Thomas)

      D        A               G           A
     Hey, hey mama life, is a lonely time

            D         A                 G         A
     For a man, who drinks his whisky, by the jar

            D               A                  G        A
     Now I do believe, the life I lead, won't get me very far

    F#m                                 Bm
     I was once told, the streets were paved in gold

   Em                  Asus           A
     Now I know them for what they are

      D        A                 G            A
     Hey, hey mama life, has a sweeter sound

            D         A              G             A
     For a man, who lives his life, for his dream

             D                         A
     Yet he must be aware, there are those who care

              G                    A
     And of those who would bring him down

     F#m           Bm                        Em                        Asus   A
     Separate trust, from your cut and thrust, the truth can still be found

               Bm       F#m      Bm                        Em
     For the crossroads of your life, will lead you almost anywhere

     You'll see tomorrow

   Bm      F#m        Bm                          Em         A
     Your castles in the air, they were never really there

                D          F#m          Bm                 D
     Take the pride from a man, you're left without a meaning

    G                       F#m              Em
     Take the wings from a bird, how can it fly

               D              F#m          Bm           D
     Give him hope, give him trust, and a little understanding

               G            F#m          Em
     Give him back his pride,  you'll be satisfied

      D    A    G    A
     [Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhh...]  x3

     D    A    G     G  G/F#  Em        A

      D        A               G           A
     Hey, hey mama life, is a lonely time

            D         A                 G         A
     For a man, who drinks his whisky, by the jar

            D               A           G                  A
     Now I do believe, the life I lead, it won't get me very far

    F#m                     Bm
     I was once told, the streets they were paved in gold

   Em                  Asus           A
     Now I know them for what they are

      D    A    G    A
     [Aaaaaaaaaahhhh...]  Repeat and fade
