Intro: D

VERSE 1
D
If grandpa was alive right now
G                      A                 D
There ain't no tellin' what he'd have to say
D                                   G
Why he had fifteen wives all living with him
        A               D
When he finally passed away
    G
And though I've just got two now mama
G                             D
That's enough to keep me satisfied
  A                             G
I haven't had a son yet but the good Lord knows
    A                D
The three of us have tried


CHORUS
           A            G
'Cause the Pennsylvania Dutch
             A              D
That we once spoke has been forgotten
        G             D              A
And the Mormon way of life is almost gone
    G               A              D    A    G
But now and then we gather down in Salt Lake City
   G                A           G
To raise our voices in a joyful song
            D                G     D
And we sing: Heavenly Father, Holy Mother
                                     A
Keeper of our children tiller of the land
D                   G               D
Take us to the river in a horse and buggy
                              A        D
Give us our salvation help us make our stand


VERSE 2
D
No, ma'am, I did not go to see
G                    A                 D
The Reverend Brigham Young while I was there
    D                                G
But I'm sure glad to know you wanted him
           A            D
To mention my name in a prayer
  G
I hope he did not preach about the young folks
       G                 D
That refused to make the change
       A                          G
'Cause if he did I'm sure I got a little more
     A               D
Than my share of the blame


CHORUS
           A            G
'Cause the Pennsylvania Dutch
             A              D
That we once spoke has been forgotten
        G             D              A
And the Mormon way of life is almost gone
    G               A              D    A    G
But now and then we gather down in Salt Lake City
   G                A           G
To raise our voices in a joyful song
            D                G     D
And we sing: Heavenly Father, Holy Mother
                                     A
Keeper of our children tiller of the land
D                   G               D
Take us to the river in a horse and buggy
                              A        D
Give us our salvation help us make our stand


REPEAT CHORUS (as necessary)
