Does Your Mother Know

Gordon Lightfoot

 1m1m76maj71m1m76
But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
3 * 5m *
Just tell her, ...... they tell her
 1m464
That you've got ten dollars and you'll be all right
 6361
And when you get straight, you're gonna come back East some day

1 * 4 6m
..... Does your mother know, you had a man in the West
1 * 7b 4 3
.... Does your mother know, you drove him from your door
4 6m 3 4 5 *
Anyway, that's all you think about, you'd call her if you could

1 * 4 6m
.... Does your mother know you walked all day in the rain
1 * 7b 4 3
.... Does your mother know how deep your love could be
4 6m 3 4 5 *
Anyway, that's all you think about, you'd call her if you could

 1m1m76maj71m1m76
But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
3 * 5m *
Just tell her, ...... they tell her
 1m464
That you've got ten dollars, and your rent costs eight
 6361
And when you get straight, you're gonna come back East some day

 1m1m76maj71m1m76
But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light
3 * 1m6 * 7b 4 5 1
Just tell her, ...... they tell her
