Mothers Pride Chords by George Michael

This is a much easier version… the only tough chord is B, and I typically play it in the 
position, muting the top string (too tinny).

To match George Michael’s studio version, tune your guitar down a half note.

Gsus4:
E |---|---|-4-|--------|
B |---|---|-3-|--------|
G 0---|---|---|--------|
D 0---|---|---|--------|
A |---|---|-1-|--------|  (make sure you hear this C note)
E |---|---|-2-|    ----|

Dm       G
Oh she knows
              C
She takes his hand
Am
And prays the child will understand
Dm              G                 C
At the door they watch the men go by
Am
In the clothes that daddy wore
Bb
Mother’s pride
G
Baby boy
C
His father’s eyes
     Am                    Bb
He’s a soldier waiting for a war
           G
Time will come
             Gsus4
He’ll hold a gun
	      G
His father’s son

-repeat intro-

Dm         G
  And as he grows
	      C
He hears the band
Am
Takes the step from boy to man
Dm                  G              C
At the shore she waves her son goodbye
Am
Like the man she did before
Bb
Mother’s pride
G
Just a boy
C
His country’s eyes
     Am                     Bb
He’s a soldier waving at the shore
            G
And in her heart
              Gsus4
the time has come
          G
To lose a son

-repeat intro-


Dm                                  G
And all the husbands, all the sons, all the lovers gone
              C
They make no difference
    Am
No difference in the end
Dm                      G                    C
   Still hear the woman say your daddy died a hero
Am
In the name of God and man
Bb
Mother’s pride
G
Crazy boy
C
His lifeless eyes
       Am                Bb
He’s a soldier now forevermore
   G           Gsus4                   G
 He’ll hold a gun ‘till kingdom come
