Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
"Freeze! I'm Ma Baker - put your hands in the air,
Gimme all your money!"

Dm C | Am Dm

  Dm              C            Am
This is the story of Ma Baker,
     Dm              Dm           C    Am Dm
The meanest cat from old Chicago town.

Dm C | Am Dm

Instrumental: (x2)
Dm C | Am Dm | Dm C | Am Dm
C Dm | C Dm

Verse 1:
             Dm      C             Am   Dm
She was the meanest cat in old Chicago town,
                     C               Am         Dm
She was the meanest cat, she really mowed them down,
            C       Dm             C       Dm
She had no heart at all, no no no heart at all.

             Dm      C               Am    Dm
She was the meanest cat, oh she was really tough,
                         C              Am     Dm
She left her husband's flat, he wasn't tough enough,
              C     Dm                    C         Dm
She took her boys along 'cause they were mean and strong.

Chorus:
          Dm      C           Am              Dm
Ma Ma Ma Ma - Ma Baker - she taught her four sons,
                  C          Am           Dm
Ma Ma Ma Ma - Ma Baker - to handle their guns.
                  C           Am           Dm
Ma Ma Ma Ma - Ma Baker - she never could cry,
                  C               Am          A
Ma Ma Ma Ma - Ma Baker - but she knew how to die!

[Instrumental] (x2)

Verse 2:
              Dm       C              Am  Dm
They left a trail of crime across the U.S.A.
                      C                  Am        Dm
And when one boy was killed, she really made them pay,
            C       Dm             C       Dm
She had no heart at all, no no no heart at all.

[Chorus]

Verse 3:
           Dm      C                         Am       Dm
She met a man she liked, she thought she'd stay with him,
                         C              Am       Dm
One day he fought with them, they did away with him,
            C      Dm                C      Dm
She didn't care at all, just didn't care at all.

Bridge 1:
Dm C              A#              A
     "Here is a special bulletin:
         Dm          C         A#           A
Ma Baker    is the FBI's most wanted woman.
          Dm               C           A#          A
Her photo    is hanging on every post office wall.
            Dm                C
If you have any information about this woman,
A#           A                  Dm ->
  Please contact the nearest police station..."

[Instrumental] (x1)

Bridge 2:
Dm C | Am Dm

Dm           C         Am               Dm
  "Don't anybody move!    The money or your lives!"

Dm C | Am Dm  - x2

[Instrumental] (x1)

Verse 4:
              Dm       C                  Am      Dm
One day they robbed a bank, it was their last hooray,
                       C                   Am   Dm
The cops appeared too soon, they couldn't get away,
             C         Dm                C      Dm
And all the loot they had, it made them mighty mad.

              Dm    C             Am       Dm
And so they shot it out, Ma Baker and her sons,
                     C                     Am     Dm
They didn't want to hang, they died with blazing guns,
             C   Dm               C        Dm
And so the story ends of one who left no friends.

[Chorus]
