The x means: striking the strings while your index finger is muting the
strings on the 4th fret (to create a scratch effect). Play the melody with
your middle finger and little finger.


[The Song]

2x Riff [Em]
2x Riff with bass and second guitar

my mama said
that your life is a gift
and my mama said
there's much weight you will lift
and my mama said
leave those bad boys alone
and my mama said
be home before the dawn
and my mama said
you can be rich or poor
but my mama said
you can be big or small

[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run
[Em] always on the run


[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run

Riff (x2)

my mama said
that it's good to be fruitful
but my mama said
don't take more than a mouthful
and my mama said
that it's good to be natural
and my mama said
that it's good to be factual

[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run
[Em] always on the run


[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run

[Riff] (x2)


[Solo]

[A] [Em] [B] [Em]


[Riff]

my mama said
baby don't ride that crazy horse
and my mama said
you must push with much force
and my mama said
go get all that you're after
and my mama said
that love's all that mathers


[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run
[Em] always on the run
[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run


[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run
[Em] always on the run


[Choir]

[G] but I'm [A] always on the run

[Riff] (x2)

(ah, what's that mama ?
do you want...? right now ? hold on ! yeah!)

(x5) [Riff] (with brass)
