# Here's another great Dr. Hook song which I thought was missing here.

{t:Sylvia's Mother}

[A]Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's busy, too busy to come to the p[E]hone
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's trying, to start a new life of her [A]own.
[D]Sylvia's mother says S[A]ylvia's happy...
So w[E]hy don't you leave her a[A]lone?
And the [E]operator says :" Fourty cents more, for the next three minutes."

        Ple[D]ase Mrs. Adria, I've j[A]ust got to talk to her
        [E]I'll only keep her a wh[A]ile
        [D]Please Mrs. Adria, just w[A]ant to tell her

[A]Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's packing, she's goin' to be leaving tod[E]ay.
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's marrying, a fellow down Galveston-W[A]ay
[D]Sylvia's mother says "P[A]lease don't say nothing...
To m[E]ake her start crying and[A] stay."
And the [E]operator says :" Fourty cents more, for the next three minutes."


[A]Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's hurrying, she's catching the nine'o'clock t[E]rain.
Sylvia's mother says:"Take your umbrella, cause Sylvia it's starting to r[A]ain."
And [D]Sylvia's mother says "T[A]hank you for calling...
And so [E]won't you come back agai[A]n."
And the [E]operator says :" Fourty cents more, for the next three minutes."

Tell her goodbye
Please, tell her goodbye

i thought that this tab was not easy to understand and i disliked how it didnt show the staff and/or the numbers for the fretts. i must say that i was very dissapointed considering this is a great song.

i dont get why this tab has such bad rating, it has the correct chords and the lyrics, the formating could be clearer but otherwise its perfect.
