Mama Sang a Song  Bill Anderson

CAPO: 3rd FRET
SING:
([C]God put a s[F]ong in the he[E]art of an [Am]angel
And s[Dm]oftly she s[Em]ang [G7]it to [C]me)[C]
SPOKEN:
[F] I get to thinking lots of times
[C]About back when I was a lad
[F]Of the old home place where I grew up
Of the days both good and [C]bad
My overalls were h[Am]and-me-downs
[D7]My shoes were f[G]ull of holes
I used to walk four miles to school
Every day th[C]rough the rain the sleet and the cold
I've seen the nights when my d[F]addy would cry
For the things that his family would need
But [C]all he ever got was a badland f[G]arm
And seven hungry mouths to f[C]eed
And yet and [Am]yet our h[F]ome fire n[C]ever flickered once
Ca[G]use when all these things went wrong[C]
Mama took the hymn book down[G] and mama sang this song
SONG:
(W[C]hat a friend we have in J[F]esus)
SPOKEN:
[C]I've been rocked to sleep many a night
To the tune of What a Friend
And come [G7]morning Rock of Ages
Would wake me gently once again
And then daddy wo[C]uld reach up
And he'd take the Bible down
And he'd read it read it loud and l[F]ong
And I always felt that maybe our house was blessed
When daddy would say [C]mama sing a song
[G] Sister left home first I gu[C]ess
And then Bob and then Tommy and then Dan
[F]By then dad's hair was turning white
And I had to be mama's little [Bb]man
But it seemed that as daddy's back grew weak
My mother's f[F]aith just grew strong
[C] And those were the greatest days of a[F]ll
When mama sang a song
SONG:
([F]Rock of ages c[Bb]left for [F]me let me hide [Bb]mys[F]elf [C]in T[F]hee
[C]Do [F]do [C7]doo
SPOKEN:
[C7]I guess the house is still standing
I don't get to go back much anymore
[F] No voice is left to fill those halls
And no steps to g[C7]race the floor
For you see my mother sings in h[F]eaven now
Around God's golden throne
But I'll always believe
That this world is a better place
Beca[Bb]use one time [F]
N.C

([F]Prec[Dm]ious m[C]em'r[Dm]ies f[F]lood [C]my s[Bb]oooo[F]oooo[Gm7]ooooo[F]ooul)
