Musical Key  Cowboy Junkies

[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody
[G] [A] [Bm] [F#] 
although she never sang in a musical key.
[G] [A] 
I would hear her through the house.
[G] [F#] 
My name called out loud.
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody.
[G] [F#] [Bm] 
My mother's hands were always cool and soft.
[G] [A] [Bm] [F#] 
And like her eyes, they would caress with every touch.
[G] [A] 
She would listen to my chatter
[G] [F#] 
as if every word I spoke mattered.
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
She'd hold me close and whisper in my ear.
[A] [Bm] 
She'd say, "girl, you are a part of me
[A] [Bm] 
and I have made you strong.
[A] [Bm] 
when you grow up and are on your own
[G] [F#] [Bm] 
remem- ber to win them with your song."
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
My father sang in perfect harmony.
[G] [A] [Bm] [F#] 
And though he never sang in a musical key
[G] [A] 
You could hear him when he'd enter the house
[G] [F#] 
the kiss he'd give my Ma.
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
My father sang in perfect harmony.
[G] [F#] [Bm] 
My father's words were always sure and clear
[G] [A] [Bm] [F#] 
and like his presence they would rid me of my fears.
[G] [A] 
And when I crawled up on his knees
[G] [F#] 
I was safe as I could be.
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
He'd hold me tight and whisper in my ear.
[A] [Bm] 
He'd say, "girl, you are a part of me
[A] [Bm] 
and I have made you strong
[A] [Bm] 
when you grow up and are on your own
[G] [F#] [Bm] 
remem- ber to win them with your song."
[Bm] [G] [F#] [Bm] 
My mother sang the sweetest melody,
[G] [F#] [Bm] 
although she never sang in a musical key.
