But mama you been on my mind

I don't mean trouble please don't put me down or get
      upset I am not pleading
Or saying I can't forget you
I do not pace the floor bow down and beg but yet
Mama you been on my mind

Even though my eyes are hazy and my thoughts they might be narrow
      where you been don't bother me
Or bring me down with sorrow
I don't even mind who you'll be waking with tomorrow
Mama you're just on my mind

I'm not asking you to say words like yes or no please understand me
I have no place I'm calling you to go
I'm just whisperin' to myself so I can't pretend that I don't know
Mama you are on my mind

When you wake up in the morning baby look inside your mirror
      you know I won't be next to you
You know I won't be near
I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
As someone who has had you on his mind

The chord:

C7/B: 022310

Sounds better for me as

C7/B: 022130

Hope it helps :-)
