lyrics

I've tried, I've tried mama
to find my way
everyone's got something to sell
I don't want to play that game
I don't want to play win or lose
I've tried, I've tried mama
to shake these blues

I've tried, I've tried mama
to find my way home
through every small town and barroom
'long this crooked road
and it's on this crooked road
where I may lay down to die
I can't shake these blues
oh, but mama, I've tried

I've cried, I've cried mama
for the way things were
I remember harmony
joy and laughter
I remember laughter
'tween sister and you
I've cried, I've cried mama
I can't shake these blues

I've cried, I've cried mama
for the way things used to be
long before the devil
got the best of me
I wish I was a freight train
rolling down the line
I can't shake these blues
oh but mama, I've tried
