Acknowledge the old timers! That influenced
Our modern day superstars!!!




 4  -6b -6b 6  -6b -6b -6b 
Well I  re-mem-ber it all 

-6b 6  -6b  -6b  -6b 6
ve-ry well look-in back

5   5   4   -4 -4  4   -4    -4   -4
It was the sum-mer I turned eigh-teen

4    -4  -4 4 -4   -4    -4  -4   -4
We lived in a one room, run-down shack

-4  4  -4    -4    4  -4  4   4
On the out-skirts of New Or-leans

4   6  -6b -6b  -6b-6b -5b   7  -5b -6b  
We did-n’t have mon-ey for food or rent

6   5   4   -4   4   -4   -4     5
To say the least we were hard pressed

 4   -4 -4   4   -4  4   -4   -4 -4 4  -4
Then ma-ma spent ev-ery last pen-ny we had

4   -4 -4 4  -4  4    4
To buy me a dan-cin dress

-6b  7  -7   8     6   -6b    6   -6b   -6b  7
Well ma-ma washed and combed and curled my hair

 7   -6b  6    6    6 -6b -6b -5b   7   
And then she paint-ed my eyes and lips 

-6b -5b   6    5  6  6 6  5
then I stepped in-to a sa-tin

 6   6   -6b   -6b -6b 4  -4  
Dan-cin dress that had a split 

-4  4   -4    5   4   4  4  4
on the side clean up to my hip

7  -7   8  -6b -6b   6 -6b -6b -5b -6b -5b 7
It was red vel-vet trim-in and it fit me good

-6b  -5b   6    6   5    6   6   6  
Stand-in back from the look-in glass

  6     6   5  6 -6b  
There stood a wom-an 

-6b -6b -4    -4   4   4    4
where a half grown kid had stood

-6b  -6b  5  7    7    5 -6b 5
She said, Ma-ma, what do  I do? 

 5    5    4   -6b -6b  
She said, Just be nice 

-6b -6b -4 -6b -5b -5b -5b
to the gen-tle-men Fan-cy

-5b    4    6    4  -5b 4
And they’ll be nice to you


 6   -6b  -5b    7   -5b   -5b   6  7   
She said here’s your one chance Fan-cy 

  6    6  8   5
don’t let me down

 6   -6b   4      5   4     4    -4 -4 
She said here’s your one chance Fan-cy 

 -4    -4 -6b  4
don’t let me down

 4      5  -6b   6  -7  7   6   7 -5b 
Well, Lord for-give me for what I do, 

-6b -6b -5b  -7  -5b
but if  you want out

 7     -5b  6  7  6
Well, it’s up to you.

 6    -6b  -5b 6   6     
Now, don’t let me down, 

 6   6   6   5    5   5  5    5  -6b -6b
now your ma-ma’s gon-na move you up-town

 6    -4  5    6   5
Well, I guess she did


Mama dabbed a little bit of perfume on my neck
And she kissed my cheek
Then I saw the tears wellin up in her troubled eyes
When she started to speak
She looked at a pitiful shack
And then she looked at me and took a ragged breath
She said your pas run off and Im real sick
And the babys gonna starve to death

She handed me a heart shaped locket that said
To thine own self be true
And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across
The tow of my high heel shoe
It sounded like somebody else that was talkin
Askin mama what do I do
She said just be nice to the gentlemen fancy
And theyll be nice to you



Well, that was the last time I saw my ma
The night I left that rickety shack
The welfare people came and took the baby
Mama died and I aint been back

But the wheels of fate had started to turn
And for me there was no way out
And it wasnt very long til I knew exactly
What my mamas been talkin about

I knew what I had to do but I made myself this solemn vow
That is gonna be a lady someday
Though I dont know when or how
I couldnt see spending the rest of my life
With my head hung down in shame you know
I might have been born just plain white trash
But fancy was my name



It wasnt very long after a benevolent man
Took me off the street
And one week later I was pourin his tea
In a five room hotel suite

I charmed a king, a congressman
And an occasional aristocrat
Then I got me a georgia mansion
In an elegant new york townhouse flat
And I aint done bad

Now in this world theres a lot 
of self-righteous hippocrits
That would call me bad
And criticize mama for turning me out
No matter how little we had
But though I aint had to worry bout nothin
For nigh on fifteen years
I can still hear the desperation in my poor
Mamas voice ringin in my ear
