Mother and Father  Madonna

[Dm] There was a time I was [C]happy in my [G]life
[Dm] There was time I believ[C]ed I'd live [G]forever
[Dm] There was a time that I[C] prayed to J[G]esus Christ
[Dm] There was a time I had [C]a mother it [G]was nice
[Am] Oh mother why [Dm]aren't you here w[G]ith me
[Am] No one else sa[Dm]w the things that[G] you could see
[Am] I'm trying har[Dm]d to dry my tears[G]
[Am] Yes father you[Dm] know I'm not so [G]free
[Dm] Nobody else would ever [C]take the pla[G]ce of you
[Dm] Nobody else could do th[C]e things tha[G]t you could do
[Dm] No one else I guess cou[C]ld hurt me l[G]ike you did
[Dm] I didn't understand I w[C]as just a ki[G]d
[Am] Oh mother why [Dm]aren't you here w[G]ith me
[Am] No one else sa[Dm]w the things that[G] you could see
[Am] I'm trying har[Dm]d to dry my tears[G]
[Am] Yes father you[Dm] know I'm not so [G]free
[Am]I got to give it up
[Dm]Find someone to l[G]ove me
[Am]I got to let it go
[Dm]Find someone that[G] I can care for
[Am]I got to give it up
[Dm]Find someone to l[G]ove me
[Am]I got to let it go
[Dm]Find someone that[G] I can care for
My [Am]mother died when I was five
And [Dm]all I did was [G]sit and cry
I [Am]cried and cried and cried all day
Unt[Dm]il the neigh[G]bours went away
They [Am]couldn't take my loneliness
I couldn't take their phoniness[Dm] [G]
My [Am]father had to go to work
I used to think he was a jerk[Dm] [G]
I [Am]didn't know his heart was broken
And [Dm]not another w[G]ord was spoken
[Am]He became a shadow of
The f[Dm]ather I was dr[G]eaming of
I [Am]made a vow that I would never need another person ever
Turned my he[Dm]art into a cage a vic[G]tim of a kind of rage
Am Dm G (2X)
[Am]I've got to give it up
[Dm]Find some[G]body to [Am]love
[Dm]Find someone [G]that I can care for
[Am]I got to give it up
I got t[Dm]o give it up[G]
I got to give it [Am]up
I got to give it up
[Dm]I got to [G]give it up
