CAPO: IV


[Intro]
G G


[Verse 1]
C                                     E7
Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat
    Am            D7/F#
And covering the crossroads I'm standing at
   C              G          Am        G6   F
Or maybe it's the weather or something like that
    C/G            G6    C
But mama, you been on my mind
C G G


[Verse 2]
C                                        E7
I don't mean trouble please don't put me down or get upset
         Am          D7/F#
I am not pleadin' or sayin' "I can't forget you"
  C               G           Am       G6        F
I do not pace the floor bowed down and bent, but yet
C/G            G6    C
Mama, you been on my mind
G G


[Verse 3]
     C                                                     E7
Even though my eyes are hazy and my thoughts they might be narrow
          Am                       D7/F#
Where you been don't bother me, or bring me down with sorrow
  C          G                  Am     G6   F
I don't even mind who you'll be waking with tomorrow
C/G          G6         C
Mama, you're just on my mind
C C
 

[Verse 4]
    C                                    E7
I'm not asking you to say words like "yes" or "no"
            Am         D7/F#
Please understand me I have no place I'm calling you to go
         C               G                  Am        G6      F
I'm just whispering to myself so I can't pretend that I don't know
C/G           G6    C
Mama, you are on my mind
G G


[Bridge]
C E7   Am D7/F#   C G Am G6 F   C/G G6 C   G G

[Verse 5]
         C                           E7
When you wake up in the morning baby look inside your mirror
    Am                               D7/F#
You know I won't be next to you, you know I won't be near
            C          G               Am      G6      F
I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
   C/G             G6             C
As someone who has had you on his mind 
G G C
