When Mama Prayed2-crd  Randy Travis

[G]Daddy never went to ch[c]urch on Su[G]nday,
[G]he said, That's [C]one thing I'll never do[G]
[C]But mama never gave up, she said, One da[G]y,
he'll be[C] sitting here beside of me and y[D]ou.
[G]I can still hear[C] mama softly tal[G]king,
[G]her tears fallin[C]g on her folded [G]hands
[C]So that Easter Sunday daddy walked [G]in,
[C]that's when I began / / / / to u[D]nderstand

When mama prayed[C], good things ha[G]ppened
When mama pra[C]yed, lives were [D]changed
Not much more than [C]five foot tall,
but moun[G]tains big and sm[C]all
[D]Crumbled all away when mama pr[G]ayed
Instrumental C G C G
[G]Seventeen and wi[C]ld I hit the bot[G]tle,
[G]doing / / / anyt[C]hing I dang well[G] pleased
[C]Burning down life's highway at full thro[G]ttle,
[C]while mama burned a candle on her knees[D]
[G]Then one night I[C] came home half [G]sober,
[G]I saw mama kneel[C]ing in the den[G]
As I lis[C]tened she and Jesus talked it ov[G]er,
and I kn[C]ew my restless days were 'bout to en[D]d
Repeat chorus
[B#m]It wasn't like every one of them got [C]answered,
but the tim[C]es they weren't it seemed to me were r[D]are
[B#m]you almost felt sorry for the de[C]vil,
cause he[C]aven knows he didn't have a pray[D]er
when mama praye[C]d / / / [G] [D]
Not much[C] more than five foot tall,
G c
but mountains big and small
[D]Crumbled all the way when mama [G]prayed
[D]Yeah, they crumbled all away / / /
when mama pr[G]ayed    (fading)  C  D  G
