What A Memory
[G]On the day momma died she called daddy to her side
[C]And said I’ll be goin’ soon, [D]I know it’s gonna hurt you both
But promise me before I go [C]you’ll do what I ask of [D]you
[G]In a big red folgers can hid behind the pots and pans
[C]You’ll find some money that I’ve saved
[D]And in the back of my dresser drawer
I put away a little more [G]for a rainy da[C]y[D]
[Em]Go to town and buy that [C]new guitar
[Em]Cause he’s been workin’ [C]awful hard
[G]To get his own, [C]to write his son[D]gs…[C] [D]
Oh what a [G]memory, [Em]oh what a [C]memory
And even [Am]in her final moments mo[C]mma thought of me
What a [G]memory[C] [D] [C] [D]
[G]She was only thirty-five, I was fifteen askin’ why
[C]The lord took her away, [D]he must’ve known we needed her
She was an angel here on earth, [C]I still miss her every[D]day
[G]With all her friends and half the town
And her family gathered round
[C]I bet she never felt so loved
[D]When everybody’s heads were bowed
I did my best to make her proud, [G]as I stood up[C] [D]
[Em]And I sang rock of ages [C]clear from me
[Em]As I played it on that [C]new six string
I couldn’t [G]help but cry, as [C]we said good[D]bye[C] [D]
(repeat chorus)
[Am]Even in her final moments
Mo[C]mma thought of me
What a[G] memory[C]
What a memory[G]
Not sure about the words in the last verse after “rock of ages”………
Please let me know if anyone knows what they are!
Eddie Garcia
