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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
She left this house four years today they say she???s looking for
Some Georgia farm boy

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