Title: Wouldn't Mama Be Proud
Album: Figure 8
Gm: 355333
C: 335553
D#: 668886
A#: 688766
In the verses, play an A between A# an Gm and a D between C and D#.
[Verse 1:] 
[Gm]the question [C]is[D#] wouldn't mama be [A#]proud?
there's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
and the pretty post that you're taking as as an NCO
[C]of the great pre[D#]tender
i should sure think [Gm]so
wouldn't [A#]mama be [C]pro[D#]ud?
[Verse 2:] 
[Gm]"can I take your [C]order?[D#]" asks the heavenly [A#]host
ticket to the jetstream blowing coast to coast
the long stem glasses, a movie and a pleasant dream in mid air
[C]"you gotta tell me quickl[D#]y
'cos we're almost [Gm]there"
wouldn't [A#]mama be p[C]rou[D#]d?
[D#]pointed out of the [D]window
[A#]at the sky gone [C]black
[D#]"kid you're on the right [D]track"
Gm C D# A# (2x)
[Verse 3:] 
[Gm]if i send you [C]postcards[D#] from the side of the [A#]road
photographs of moving parts about to implode
if i crawl to keep it together like you say you know i can do
[C]to transmit a momen[D#]t
from me to [Gm]you
wouldn't [A#]mama be p[C]rou[D#]d?[Gm]
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
