MERLE HAGGARD


Momma Tried Lyrics

The first thing I remember knowin'
Was a lonesome whistle blowin'
And a youngun's dream of growin' up to ride
On a freight train leavin' town, not knowin' where I'm bound
And no one could change my mind but momma tried

One and only Rebel child from a fam'ly meek and mild
My momma seemed to to know what lay in store
'Spite all my Sunday learnin' towards the bad I kept on turnin'
'Til momma couldn't hold me anymore

And I turned twenty-one in prison doin' life without parole
No one could steer me right but momma tried, momma tried
Momma tried to raise me better but her pleading I denied
And that leaves only me to blame, cause momma tried

Dear ole' daddy, rest his soul left my mom a heavy load
She tried so very hard to fill his shoes
Workin' hours without rest, wanted me to have the best
She tried to raise me right but I refused

And I turned twenty-one in prison doin' life without parole
No one could steer me right but momma tried, momma tried
Momma tried to raise me better but her pleading I denied
And that leaves only me to blame, cause momma tried
