When Mama Prayed-crd  Randy Travis

Capo on 1st fret...
WHEN MAMA PRAYED
IntroÉ G C G C G C G
[G]  Daddy never went to church on Sunday, he said, ÔThat's one thing I'll never do'
[C]                                    [G] [Am] [D]But mama never gave up, she said, ÔOne day, he'll be sitting here beside of me and you.'
[G]  I can still hear mama softly talking, her tears falling on her folded hands
[C]                                    [G] [Am] [D]So that Easter Sunday daddy walked in, that's when I began to understand
                                   [G] [C] [G] [D]ChorusÉWhen mama prayed, good things happened
                    [G]         [C]       [D]When mama prayed, lives were changed
                [G]                    [D] [G] [C]Not much more than five foot tall, but mountains big and small
[Am]                      [D]              [G]Crumbled all the way when mama prayed
InstrumentalÉ C GÊÊÊÊÊC G
[G]  Seventeen and wild I hit the bottle, doing anything I dang well pleased
[C]                                    [G] [Am] [D]Burning down life's highway at full throttle, while mama burned a candle on her knees
[G]  Then one night I came home half sober, I saw mama kneeling in the den
        [C]                            [G] [Am] [D]As I listened she and Jesus talked it over, and I knew my restless days were Ôbout to end
Repeat chorusÉCause when mamaÉÉ
[Em]                                    [C]It isn't like every one of them got answered,
           [G]                         [D]but the times they weren't it seemed to me were rare
[Em]                                    [C] [Am] [D]you almost felt sorry for the devil, cause heaven knows he didn't have a prayer
