WHEN MAMA PRAYED

Intro… G     C    G    C    G    C   G

G

Daddy never went to church on Sunday, he said, ‘That’s one thing I’ll never do’

C                                                   G                      Am                                    D

But mama never gave up, she said, ‘One day, he’ll be sitting here beside of me and you.’

G

I can still hear mama softly talking, her tears falling on her folded hands

C                                         G            Am                                    D

So that Easter Sunday daddy walked in, that’s when I began to understand

                                   G       C               G                D

Chorus…When mama prayed, good things happened

                    G        C               D

When mama prayed, lives were changed

                G                          D         G                         C

Not much more than five foot tall, but mountains big and small

Am                    D                      G

Crumbled all the way when mama prayed

Instrumental… C     G     C      G

G

Seventeen and wild I hit the bottle, doing anything I dang well pleased

C                                                 G                  Am                                       D

Burning down life’s highway at full throttle, while mama burned a candle on her knees

G

Then one night I came home half sober, I saw mama kneeling in the den

        C                                          G             Am                                                D

As I listened she and Jesus talked it over, and I knew my restless days were ‘bout to end

Repeat chorus…Cause when mama……

Em                                            C

It isn’t like every one of them got answered,

           G                                                         D

but the times they weren’t it seemed to me were rare

Em                                     C               Am                                        D

you almost felt sorry for the devil, cause heaven knows he didn’t have a prayer

                   G           C      G     D    G    C     D

when mama prayed……………………..…………

                G                          D         G                         C

Not much more than five foot tall, but mountains big and small

Am                    D                       G              C

Crumbled all the way when mama prayed

          Am                  D                              G        C     G    C    G    C    G

They crumbled all the way…… when mama prayed…………
