 G                    C              D
They had my future wrapped up in a parcel
     C            D               G
And no one even thought of asking me
 G                  C                  D
The day I turned fifteen I caught the mail train
     C                  D              G
To find what else might be in life for me
 Em                                        Bm
I rode on trucks and trains and lived on nothing
 Em                               A
Serve me right for wanting to be free
         G                C           D
Oh well that's the way society looked at it
         C            D              G
But it didn't seem to be that way to me


 G                    C                 G                 
And the biggest disappointment in the family was me
                   C              D              
The only twisted branch upon our good old family tree
         Em             Bm           Em           A
I just couldn't be the person they expected me to be
          G            C                D       G
And the biggest disappointment in the world was me

  G C G C


 G                  C                     D
A lot more dinner times than there where dinners
    C                 D              G
I learned a lot that hurt me at the time
  G                       C                D
Then this quiet country boy went home a different man
          C          D             G
With the memory of distance on my mind
       Em                                    Bm
But I always spoke too loud and laughed too often
  Em                          A
Maybe drank too many glasses down
      G                      C             D
And perhaps my clothes were older than I realised
   C               D                   G
A relief to all concerned when I left town

Chorus X2
