Mama Couldn't Be Persuaded  Warren Zevon

Tuning: EADGBe (Standard)
No Capo
Intro: A D
[A]Gambler ambled down a country lane
Looking [E]for a game of chance
She w[D]as twenty-one or two
And [A]she knew what she wanted
And [E]she wante[A]d that gamblin' man
[A]Her parents warned her
Tried to reason with her
[D]She was[A] determ[E]ined that she wanted Bill
[D]They'd [A]all be offended at the mention still
If they[E] heard this song, which I doubt they will
And m[A]y mama couldn't be persuaded
When they p[D]leaded with their daughter
Don't [A]marry t[E]hat[A] gamblin' man
And my mama couldn't be persuaded
When they p[D]leaded with their daughter
Don't [A]marry t[E]hat[A] gamblin' man
Mama couldn't be persuaded
When[D] th[A]ey pleaded with her
No,[E] no ne[A]vertheless
And my mama couldn't be persuaded
When they p[D]leaded with their daughter
Don't [A]marry t[E]hat[A] gamblin' man
