San Francisco Mable Joy chords by John Denver

San Francisco Mable Joy
John Denver

Intro D
                                   G                D
His Daddy was an honest man just a red dirt Georgia farmer
                                                        A
His mother lived her short life havin` kids and bailing hay
D                           G               D
He had fifteen years and he ached inside to wander
                                   A             D
So He jumped a freight in Waycross wound up in L.A.

                             G                D
Cold nights had no pity on a Waycross Georgia farm boy
                                            A
Most days he went hungry then the summer came
   D                                G             D
He met a girl known on the strip as San Francisco Mabel Joy
                              A                  D
Destitutions child born of an L.A. street called shame

G                                         D
Growin` up came easy in the arms of Mabel Joy
                                                       A
Laughter found their mornings brought a meaning to his life
        G                                                       D
Yes The night before she left sleep came and gave that Waycross country boy
                           A               D
A dream of Georgia cotton and a California wife

       G                                                     D
Sunday mornin` found him standing neath the red light at her door
                                                             A
When A right cross sent him reelin` put him face down on the floor
   G                                          D
In place of Mabel Joy he found a merchant mad marine
	                                    A                  D
Who growled your Georgia neck is red ah but sonny you`re still green

                          G                    D
He turned twenty one in a grey rock Federal Prison
                                                  A
The old Judge had no mercy for a Waycross country boy
D                                   G                    D
Staring at those four grey walls in silence Lord he just listened
	                                       A
To the midnight freight he knew could take him back to Mabel Joy

       G                                                  D
Sunday mornin` found him lying neath the red light at her door
                                            A
With a bullet in his side he cried have you seen Mabel Joy
G                                                          D
Stunned and shaken someone said why she don`t live here no more
                                          A
She left this house four years today they say she???s looking for
                  D
Some Georgia farm boy

Released in 1981 on Johns Some Days Are Diamonds album, San Francisco Mable Joy.
