Mama Knows  Shenandoah

Capo 1
[G] [C] [D] [C] [G] [C] [D] [G]  
[G]Me and Jimmy C[D]hrowder and a [C]single cigarette
[G]Crouched down in a [D]stall out in the [C]barn
[G]Three puffs [D]later we were [C]sick as we could get
G D C D (C B bass lead)
praying we get better before we got home
Am D (C B bass lead)
she saw me comin' through the back door screen
[Am]I knew the m[Em]inute that she l[C]ooked at m[D]e
Mama [G]know[C]s, Mama [G]knows[C]
[G]somehow I [Em]think she's got a w[C]indow to my s[D]oul
Mama [G]know[C]s, [G]Mama knows[C]
[Em]Even when I t[Am]hink it doesn't [C]show[D]
Mama [C]knows, mama knows[G] [C] [D] [C]
Verse 2
Me and Becky Johnson (make when deep) and ocean waves
(I can't understand the lyrics in this part)
pants rolled up and hearts out on our sleeves
both feelin' more than either one of us could say
that first love let the sweetest memory
Fifteen and shy I didn't tell a soul
how is that Mama never has to be told
Repeat Chorus
[Am]I wasn't home when Mama [D]passed away
[Am]I didn't get to say I love you
[D]but I [E]got this feelin'
Repeat chorus (key change up one whole step)
