Freeze! I’m Ma Baker – put your hands in the air, gimme all your money!

Dm – C – Am – Dm
This is the story of Ma Baker,
Dm – C – Am – Dm
the meanest cat from ol’ Chicago town.

 

.                     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 flat, he wasn’t tough enough
.                        C       Dm                                 C               Dm
She took her boys along, ‘cos they were mean and strong

 

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

 

.                   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

 

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

 

.                   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.

Her photo is hanging on every post office wall

Dm – C – Am – Dm – Dm – C – Am – Dm

Don’t anybody move! The money or your lives!

 






.                          Dm           C                          Am      Dm
One day they robbed a bank, it was their last foray
.                                          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.

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

 

.                   Dm            C                 Am                     Dm
