Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


send a picture of mother  Johnny Cash



[C] After seven years behind [Em] these bars [C] together
[C] I'll miss you more than a [Em] brother when you go [D7] when you go
[Em] If only I had not tried to escape [C]
[D] They'd barred me with you I know [Em] yes I know
[C] Won't you tell the folks back [Em] home I'll soon be [C] coming
[C] And don't let them know I [Em] never will be free [D7] be free
[Em] Sometimes write and tell me how they're doing [C]
[D] And send a picture of mother back to me [C]
[D] Say hello to Dad and shake his [C] poor hardworking hand
[Em] And send a picture of mother if you can [C]
I'm happy for you that you got your freedom
But stay with me just another minute or so or so
After all this sweating blood together
Who'll be my fighting partner when you go when you go

The hardest time will be on Sunday morning
Church bells will ring on Heaven Hill Heaven Hill
Please ask Reverend Garrett to pray for me
And send a picture of mother if you will

Say hello to Dad and shake his poor hardworking hand
And send a picture of mother if you can
