Verse 1:
             A                        D                 A
	His daddy was a honest man,a red dirt Georgia farmer
	His mama lived a short life having kids and bailing hay
                A                 D              A
	He had fifteen years of ache inside to wander
                                             E           A
	He jumped a freight in Waycross and wound up in L.A.

Verse 2:
             A                               D                    A
	The cold nights had no pity on that Waycross Georgia farm boy
	Most days he went hungry,then the summer came
            A                                D                   A
	He met a girl known on the strip as San Francisco Mabel Joy
                                       E                   A
	Destitutions child born on an L.A. street called shame

Verse 3:
            D                                         A
	Growing up came quietly in the arms of Mabel Joy
	Laughter found their mornings it brought new meaning to his life
             D                                                              A
	The night before she left sleep came and found that Waycross country boy
                                           E           A
	With dreams of Georgia cotton and California wine

Verse 4:
           D                                                  A
	Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door
	A right cross sent him reeling and put him face down on the floor
             D                                       A
	Inplace of Mabel Joy he found a merchant mad marine
	He said your Georgia neck is red,but sonny you're still green

Verse 5:
            A                     D                  A
	He turned twenty-one in grey rock federal prison
	The judge had no mercy on this Waycross,Georgia boy
           A                                 D                  A
	Staring at those four grey wall in silence,Lord he listened
	To the midnight freight he knew could take him back to Mabel Joy

Verse 6:
           D                                                   A
	Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door
	With a bullet in his side he cried,have you seen Mabel Joy
          D                                                    A
	Stunned and shaken someone said she don't live here no more
	She left this house four years ago she was looking for
	Some Georgia farm boy
