[D]One and only Rebel [G]child from a [D]family meek and [G]mild
my [D]Momma seemed to to know what lay in [A7]store
In spite of [D]all my Sunday [G]learning towards the [D]bad I kept on [G]turning
til [D]Momma couldn't [A7]hold me anymo[D]re
And I turned [D7]twenty-one in prison doing [G]life without par[D]ole
[D]No one could steer me right but Mamma [A7]tried, Momma tried
Momma [D7]tried to raise me better but her [G]pleadings I den[D]ied
[D]And that leaves only me to [G]blame, cause [A7]Momma tr[D]ied
Dear old Daddy, rest his soul left my Mom a heavy load
She tried so very hard to feel his shoes
Don't remember the rest-anyone?
