Hey Mama Life  Ray Thomas








     H[D]ey, hey m[A]ama life, is a l[G]onely time  [A]

     For a m[D]an, who dr[A]inks his whisky, b[G]y the jar [A]

     Now I d[D]o believe, the l[A]ife I lead, won't g[G]et me ver[A]y far

    [F#m] I was once told, the streets were p[Bm]aved in gold

   [Em]  Now I know them fo[Asus]r what they are[A]

     H[D]ey, hey m[A]ama life, has a sw[G]eeter sound  [A]

     For a m[D]an, who li[A]ves his life, f[G]or his dream  [A]

     Yet he m[D]ust be aware, there are th[A]ose who care

     And of th[G]ose who would bring h[A]im down

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

     For the cr[Bm]ossroads [F#m]of your l[Bm]ife, will lead you almost [Em]anywhere

     You'll s[A]ee tomorrow

   [Bm]  Your c[F#m]astles in t[Bm]he air, they were never real[Em]ly there   [A]

     Take the pr[D]ide from a [F#m]man, you're l[Bm]eft without a meani[D]ng

    [G] Take the wings from a b[F#m]ird, how can it f[Em]ly

     Give him h[D]ope, give him t[F#m]rust, and a l[Bm]ittle underst[D]anding

     Give him b[G]ack his pride[F#m],  you'll be [Em]satisfied

     ([D]Aaaaa[A]aaaaa[G]aahhh[A]h...)  x3

     [D]Aaaaa[A]aaaaa[G]aahhhh[G]   [G/F#]      [Em]          [A]

     H[D]ey, hey m[A]ama life, is a l[G]onely time  [A]

     For a m[D]an, who dr[A]inks his whisky, b[G]y the jar [A]

     Now I d[D]o believe, the l[A]ife I lead, [G]it won't get me ver[A]y far

    [F#m] I was once told, the st[Bm]reets they were paved in gold

   [Em]  Now I know them fo[Asus]r what they are[A]

     ([D]Aaaaa[A]aaaaa[G]hhhh.[A]..)  Repeat and fade
