I saw the ending for this song in a recent edition of Guitar Player.
I worked on the chords a little, still thing they need some adjusting.
Please feel free to correct them and add the missing lyrics.

Momma Tried  Merle Haggard

D                  G            D               G
One and only Rebel child from a family meek and mild

   D                                   A7
my Momma seemed to to know what lay in store
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/h/haggard_merle/mama_tried_tab.html ]
            D             G                    D             G
In spite of all my Sunday learning towards the bad I kept on turning

    D              A7           D
til Momma couldn't hold me anymore

             D7                         G               D
And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole

D                                     A7           
No one could steer me right but Mamma tried, Momma tried

      D7                               G              D
Momma tried to raise me better but her pleadings I denied

D                          G            A7      D
And that leaves only me to blame, cause Momma tried

Dear old Daddy, rest his soul left my Mom a heavy load
She tried so very hard to feel his shoes

Don't remember the rest-anyone?
