Mothers Pride  George Michael

Mothers Pride Chords by George Michael
This is a much easier version? the only tough chord is B, and I typically play it in the
position, muting the top string (too tinny).
To match George Michael?s studio version, tune your guitar down a half note.
 E |---|---|-4-|--------|
 B |---|---|-3-|--------|
 G 0---|---|---|--------|
 D 0---|---|---|--------|
 A |---|---|-1-|--------| (make sure you hear this C note)

[Dm]Oh she kn[G]ows
She takes his [C]hand
[Am]And prays the child will understand
[Dm]At the door they[G] watch the men go [C]by
[Am]In the clothes that daddy wore
[Bb]Mother?s pride
[G]Baby boy
[C]His father?s eyes
He?s [Am]a soldier waiting for [Bb]a war
Time will c[G]ome
He?ll hold a [Gsus4]gun
His father?s s[G]on
-repeat intro-
[Dm] And as he[G] grows
He hears the b[C]and
[Am]Takes the step from boy to man
[Dm]At the shore she wav[G]es her son good[C]bye
[Am]Like the man she did before
[Bb]Mother?s pride
[G]Just a boy
[C]His country?s eyes
He?s [Am]a soldier waving at the[Bb] shore
And in her h[G]eart
the time has c[Gsus4]ome
To lose a [G]son
-repeat intro-
[Dm]And all the husbands, all the sons, [G]all the lovers gone
They make no d[C]ifference
No d[Am]ifference in the end
[Dm] Still hear the woman [G]say your daddy died a[C] hero
[Am]In the name of God and man
[Bb]Mother?s pride
[G]Crazy boy
[C]His lifeless eyes
He?s a [Am]soldier now foreve[Bb]rmore
He[G]?ll hold a g[Gsus4]un ?till kingdom come[G]
