She got a [G]job behind the counter in an
all [D]night hamburger stand

She wrote faithfully home to mama
"Now mama don't you worry none"[Bm]
From smal[D]l things, mama

Prays for his baby's parole
He waits [G]on the hillside
Where the [D]Wyomie waters roll

At his feet and almost grown now
A blue-eyed daughter and a handsome so[Bm]n
Well [D]from small things, mama
[A]Big things one day com[D]e
