San Francisco Mabel Joy Recorded by Waylon Jennings written Mickey Newbury
G C G His daddy was a honest man a red dirt Georgia farmer D7 His mama lived a short life having kids and bailing hay G C G He had fifteen years of ache inside to wander D7 G He jumped a freight in Waycross and wound up in L.A.
C G The cold nights had no pity on that Waycross Georgia farm boy D7 Most days he went hungry then the summer came G C G He met a girl known on the strip as San Francisco Mabel Joy F G Destitutions child born on an L.A. street called shame
C G Growing up came quietly in the arms of Mabel Joy D7 Laughter found their mornings it brought new meaning to his life C The night before she left sleep came and found that Waycross country boy G F G With dreams of Georgia cotton and California wife
C G Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door F A right cross sent him reeling and put him face down on the floor G C G In place of Mabel Joy he found a merchant mad marine F D7 He said your Georgia neck is red but sonny you're still green
G C G He turned twenty-one in grey rock federal prison D7 The judge had no mercy on this Waycross Georgia boy G C G Staring at those four grey wall in silence Lord he listened F D7 To the midnight freight he knew could take him back to Mabel Joy
C Sunday morning found him beneath the red light at her door F D7 With a bullet in his side he cried have you seen Mabel Joy C G Stunned and shaken someone said she don't live here no more F D7 She left this house four years ago they say she was looking for C Some Georgia farm boy
