Cd I was just passin' through and got caught in the rain. Gd There's nothin' I want, nothin' that you need say. D G Just let me lie down for a while and I'll be on my way. C Gd I was no more than a kid when you put me on the Southern Queen. C With the police on my back I fled to New Orleans. Gd I fought in the dockyards and with the money I made. D Gd I knew the fight was my home and blood was my trade. C Gd Baton Rouge, Ponchatoula, and Lafayette town. C Well they payed me their money, Ma, to knock the men down. Gd I did what I did, yeah it come easily. D Gd Restraint and mercy, Ma, were always strangers to me. Interlude: G C C Ch Ch G C C C G G G G Gd C Gd I fought champion Jack Thompson in a field full of mud. C Rain poured through the tent to the canvas and mixed with our blood. Gd In the twelfth I slipped my tounge over my broken jaw. C I stood over him and pounded his bloody body into the floor. Gd Well the bell rang and rang and still I kept on. D Gd 'Til I felt my glove leather slip 'tween his skin and bone. C Gd Then the women and the money came fast and the days I lost track. C The women red, the money green, but the numbers were black. Gd I fought for the men in their silk suits to lay down their bets. D Gd I took my good share, Ma, I have no regrets. C G I took the fix at the state armory with big John McDowell. C From high in the rafters I watched myself fall. Gd As they raised his arms my stomach twisted and the sky it went black. D G I stuffed my bag with their good money and I never looked back. C G Understand, in the end, Ma, every man plays the game. D G If you know me one different then speak out his name. C Ma, if my voice now you don't recognize. G D G Then just open the door and look into your dark eyes. C I ask of you nothin', not a kiss not a smile. G D G Just open the door and let me lie down for a while. C G Now the gray rain's fallin' and my ring fightin's done. Cd So in the work fields and alleys, I take all who'll come. Gd If you're a better man than me then just step to the line. C And show me your money and speak out your crime. Gd Now there's nothin' I want, Ma, nothin' that you need say. D G Just let me lie down for a while and I'll be on my way. Tonight in the shipyard, a man draws a circle in the dirt. Cd I move to the center and I take off my shirt. Gd I study him for the cuts, the scars, the pain, Man nor time can erase.
