Good Intentions  Randy Travis



[D] [G] [D] [A]  
[D]Mama always [D7]prayed that I'd be a [G]better man than [D]daddy
and I determined [D7]not to let her [A]down
[D]Deserted by the [D7]man she loved and [G]left to raise four [D]children
we were the local [A7]gossip of the [D]town.
I [D]promised her that [D7]I'd live right and [G]not be like the [D]others
but I wound up in [D7]jail on Chrismas [A]day
I [D]told her I'd be [D7]home and not to [G]worry 'bout my [D]brothers
when I got home my [A7]mom had passed [D]away
And [D]I hear [D7]tell the [G]road to hell is [D]paved with good intentions
and [D7]mama my intentions were the [A]best
[D]There's lotsa [D7]things [G]in my life I [D]just as soon not mention
[D7]Looks like I've turned out like all the [A]rest
But [G]mama my in[A7]tentions were the [D]best
A [D]little boy with [D7]big blue eyes a-[G]beggin' to go [D]fishing
I promised him but [D7]never took the [A]time
Now [D]they won't let me [D7]see him and [G]I sit here a-[D]wishing
Wishin' I could [A7]hold him one more[D] time
(repeat chorus)
But [G]mama my in[A7]tentions were the [D]best
