Mother Dear  The Divine Comedy

[D] [Am]  

[C] [G]  
 E-----------------------------|-3---------------3---------------| 2x

[Em]It was not that l[B]ong ago it [G]first occurred [C]to me
[C]That my mother was [Bm]a person in her own [Am]right[D]
And [Em]now I real[B]ize how very l[G]ucky I have [C]been
[C]And there, but for the [Bm]grace of God, go[Am] I, go [A]I
[D]Mother dear, [Am]she can see inside
[C]Mother dear, a[G]nd I've nowhere to hide
[D]Mother dear, [Am]did I spoil your plans?
[C]Mother dear, I [G]do the best I can
[Em]When I was a tee[B]nager, I r[G]eally did be[C]lieve
[C]That my parents [Bm]had adopted [Am]me[D]
[Em]And the way I carried [B]on they must [G]have thought
They'd brought the[C] wrong little ba[G]by home from[Am] maternity
[A]Well, I'd like to say I'm sorry but my
[D]Mother dear, [Am]she already knows
[C]Mother dear, s[G]he'll never let me go
[D]Mother dear, [Am]kept me warm and safe
[C]Mother dear, I'[G]ll never lose my faith in mother dear
[D] [Am] [C] [G]  
[D] [Am] [C] [G]  
[Em]If I ever [B]get arrested [G]by the C.I.[C]A.
[C]Because they take me [Bm]for a foreign [Am]spy[D]
[Em]They won't need no [B]lie-detector, [G]all they'll have [C]to do
[C]Is make m[G]e look into my mother's [Am]eyes
And [F]I'll tell them anything they like
[D]Mother dear, [Am]she can see inside
[C]Mother dear, a[G]nd I've nowhere to hide
[D]Mother dear, [Am]kept me warm and safe
[C]Mother dear, I'[G]ll never lose my faith in mother [D]dea[Am]r
Mother [C]dear,[G] mother [D]de[Am]ar
My mother [C]dear[G]
[D]Mother dear, [Am]did I spoil your plans?
[C]Mother dear, [G]I do the best I can
