[Verse 1]
            C             Em                  F
I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill
            C         Em             F
I threw the day old tea from the cup
Am                G          F       Dm7      C
   Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
    F           G                    C
Memories of a life that’s been loved

            C            Em              F
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
           C            Em               F
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
Am            G                 F        Dm7         C
   Dad always told me don’t you cry when you’re down
                  F          G                 C
But mum there’s a tear every time that I blink


[Pre-Chorus 1]
Dm            F              C         G
   Oh I’m in pieces, it’s tearing me up but I know
Dm                F            C                     G
   A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved


[Chorus 1]
             C          Em   F
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
            G            C               Em   F
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
            G
When I fell down you’d be there
Am            F              C            G
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
          Am                F           C         G           
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home
C  Em  F   G
C  Em  F


[Verse 2]
                 C               Em                     F
I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
            C            Em             F
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
G Am                G                  F                C
     John said he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek
            F              G          C
And wiped a tear from the side of my face


[Pre-Chorus 2]
Dm                 F          C              G
   And I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
Dm             F           C                    G
   A life with love is a life that’s been lived


[Chorus 2]
             C          Em   F
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
            G            C               Em   F
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
            G
When I fell down you’d be there
Am            F              C            G
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
          Am                F           C         G           
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home


[Bridge]
C   Em  F
Ooh ooh ooh
C   Em  F
Ooh ooh ooh
C   Em  F
Ooh ooh ooh
Am  G   F 
Ooh ooh ooh


[Chorus 3]

(C  = x32010)
(Em = x22003)
(Fadd9 = xx3213)

C          Em   Fadd9
Hallelujah 
                         C               Em   Fadd9
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
                          Am            F              C             G
You got to see the person I have become, spread your wings and I know that when
 Am               F         C         G            C
God took you back, he said Hallelujah, you’re home
