MAMA HOW FAR I'VE COME
by Laura Marling

Tabbed by: Maria
E-mail: mariasofiahedkvist@gmail.com

Tuning: Open D (DAD#FAD)

This is my first tab and it's not very detailed - you will have to listen to
the song to work out all the details. Except for the very last bit, it
should be correct. If it isn't, or you have any questions, don't hesitate to
contact me!

Lyrics

(A)
I didn't think I'd be anyone
Oh mama how far I've come
Oh mama how far I've come
And I didn't think we'd go anywhere
(B)
Oh my darling au contraire
Oh my darling au contraire
(A)
I'll grow up and make someone a wife
Him and me we'll make us a life
And I'll freak out and cut off my hair
Brand new start I'll start it there
Didn't grow back for a few good years
Shed many tears, shed many tears
And I know that I shouldn't care
If people look what they see there
I know that I'm good inside
(C)
And if people don't I shouldn't mind
If people don't I shouldn't mind

(A)
Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone
I'm somebody and I love someone
And I feel the weight of a woman now
With iron bones and full of fire
And I could leave at any stage
But the weight of a woman tells me to stay
Weight of a woman tells me to stay

[I'm unsure about the ending - I think she alternates between strumming the
A-pattern and the last chords in part C. Otherwise, just strum the chords in
part C - it's not 100% correct but it sounds all right.]

Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone
Oh now mama how far I've come
I'm somebody and I love someone 

The song ends with the last chords in part C, strummed.
