Lyrics of Mama Tried
by Merle Haggard

The first thing I remember knowing
Was a lonesome whistle blowing
And a young'un's dream of growing up to ride
On a freight train leaving town
Not knowing where I'm bound
And no one could change my mind but mama tried
One and only rebel child
From a family meek and mild
My mama seemed to know what lay in store
Despite all my Sunday learning
Towards the bad I kept on turning
'Til mama couldn't hold me anymore


And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole
No one could steer me right but mama tried, mama tried
Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied

That leaves only me to blame 'cause mama tried


Dear old daddy, rest his soul
Left my mom a heavy load
She tried so very hard to fill his shoes
Working 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 doing life without parole
No one could steer me right but mama tried, mama tried
Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied
That leaves only me to blame 'cause mama tried

Mama Tried: Translations and Lyrics - Merle Haggard
Merle Ronald Haggard (April 6, 1937 – April 6, 2016) was born in Oildale, California, a little more than a railroad junction on the outskirts of Bakersfield. He has become a singer-songwriter who has become a legend in country music. Often called the poet of the common man, he and his band helped create the “Bakersfield Sound”, characterized by the electric guitar and harmony vocal. The style is honky tonk minimalist, with an immediate and honest sound that is not heard in the polished Nashville recordings.
