Musical Key  Cowboy Junkies

[Bm]      [G]      [F#]     [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody
[G]                [A]       [Bm]    [F#] 
although she never sang in a musical key.
        [G]                  [A] 
I would hear her through the house.
[G]                [F#] 
My name called out loud.
[Bm]      [G]      [F#]     [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody.
            [G]        [F#]            [Bm] 
My mother's hands were always cool and soft.
[G]          [A]              [Bm]              [F#] 
And like her eyes, they would caress with every touch.
[G]                    [A] 
She would listen to my chatter
      [G]                [F#] 
as if every word I spoke mattered.
[Bm]          [G]       [F#]          [Bm] 
She'd hold me close and whisper in my ear.
            [A]              [Bm] 
She'd say, "girl, you are a part of me
[A]                 [Bm] 
and I have made you strong.
[A]                      [Bm] 
when you grow up and are on your own
       [G]    [F#]               [Bm] 
remem- ber to win them with your song."

[Bm]      [G]     [F#]    [Bm] 
My father sang in perfect harmony.
[G]                 [A]       [Bm]    [F#] 
And though he never sang in a musical key
          [G]                [A] 
You could hear him when he'd enter the house
    [G]              [F#] 
the kiss he'd give my Ma.
[Bm]      [G]     [F#]    [Bm] 
My father sang in perfect harmony.

            [G]        [F#]            [Bm] 
My father's words were always sure and clear
[G]          [A]                 [Bm]         [F#] 
and like his presence they would rid me of my fears.
[G]                [A] 
And when I crawled up on his knees
      [G]             [F#] 
I was safe as I could be.
[Bm]         [G]       [F#]          [Bm] 
He'd hold me tight and whisper in my ear.

          [A]              [Bm] 
He'd say, "girl, you are a part of me
[A]                 [Bm] 
and I have made you strong
[A]                      [Bm] 
when you grow up and are on your own
       [G]    [F#]               [Bm] 
remem- ber to win them with your song."

[Bm]      [G]      [F#]     [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody,
[G]                [F#] [Bm] 
although she never sang in a musical key.
