                            Jesus and Mama
                      written by: Danny Mayo and James Dean Hicks
                      performed by Confederate Railroad on self-titled album


[Intro]

GCGC

    G
1.I made a wish upon a star
  C
  I could have a brand new car
   G
  Got tired of wishing
         C
  So I stole one

   G
  Seventeen and knew it all
       C
  My dreams were big but my thoughts were small
    G
  So many roads somehow I chose
        C            D
  The wrong one


       G
C.But Jesus and mama always loved me
  C
  Even when the devil took control
   G                              C
  Jesus and mama always loved me
    D
  This I know


2.I felt tried most all my life
  Found new kinds of lows and highs
  Never been a husband but I had a lot of wives
  To hold me

  Headstrong, stubborn, couldn't be told
  Like a wild horse that couldn't be rode
  A rainbow chaser hungry for gold
  And still searchin'


  Repeat Chorus


3.I wish mom could see me now
  And how I've turned it all around
  Lately I've been going down
  The right road

  Life's a picture that you paint
  With blues and grays and cans of canvas
  Heaven knows I'm not a saint
  But I know


  Repeat Chorus

I'm posting a correction to "Jesus and Mama". I havent seen the sheet music but I believe it is in the key of F#. But
If you stick with the key of G this is the correct way:


G
1.I made a wish upon a star
C
I could have a
brand new car
G
Got tired of wishing
C
So I stole one

G
Seventeen and knew it all
C

My dreams were big but my thoughts were small
G
So many roads somehow I chose
C D
The
wrong one


G C
C.But Jesus and mama always loved me
G D

Even when the devil took control
G C G
Jesus and mama always loved me
D
This
I know


2.I felt trapped most all my life
Found new kinds of lows and highs
Never been a husband but I had a
lot of wives
To hold me

Headstrong, stubborn, couldn't be told
Like a wild horse that couldn't be rode
A
rainbow chaser hungry for gold
And still searchin'


Repeat Chorus


3.I wish mom could see me now
And how
I've turned it all around
Lately I've been going down
The right road

Life's a picture that you paint
With
blues and grays and can's of cant's
Heaven knows I'm not a saint
But I know


Repeat Chorus
