CAPO I


INTRO: G     

RIFF: C-G  C-D7-G (2x)


       G
I was raised on the west side shanty town 

I didn't get up until the sun went down
            C
When your back's against the wall, you better get tough
                            N.C.
You learn real quick how to swing and duck


CHORUS:
      C
I was born in the sweet hot Florida sunshine
G
Good lookin' women backwoods and moonshine
        D
Learned more about life on the streets than in the school
N.C.         
My sweet mama didn't raise no fool, that's right


RIFF


G
Some folks cheat and some folks lie

But I can judge a man by the look in his eye
C
Don't hand by Jack and try to call it cola
                                  N.C.
I can tell the difference between s**t and shinola


CHORUS


SOLO: C  G  C  D


G-C G-C                    G     
         I'm talkin' 'bout mama
G-C G-C           D
         Oh sweet mama

G
Mama was no angel but she taught me right from wrong

She knew every single word and every note of every song
     C
She taught me how to gamble and how to roll the dice
    
If it makes you feel good do it, don't think twice


CHORUS (2x)


RIFF (4x)
