In the verses you can do an Eb as a transition - just for the hell of it ;) Enjoy!

                       Eb    Bb
Mama said that it was okay
                       Dm7            Gm
Mama said that it was quite alright
                        Dm7          Gm
Our kinda people had a bed for the night
               F
and it was okay


                       Eb           Bb
Mama said that we were good kids
                          Dm7             Gm
and daddy told us never listen to the ones
                 Dm7                  Gm
pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                    F
'cause we were good kids


                        Gm
Remember asking both my mom and dad
       (Eb)           Bb
Why we never travel to exotic lands
                          Gm
We only ever really visit friends
           (Eb)           Bb
Nothing to tell when the summer ends


                     Gm
We never really went buying clothes
       (Eb)                                 Bb
'cause folks were passing on the stuff in plenty loads
                Gm
New shoes once a year and then
       (Eb)           Bb
Out to play ball so we could go in them


                            Eb    Bb
When mama said that it was okay
                      Dm7           Gm
Mama said that it was quite alright
                       Dm7             Gm
Our kinda people had a bed for the night
           F
and it was okay


                     Eb      Bb
Mama told us we were good kids
                         Dm7              Gm
and daddy told us never listen to the ones
               Dm7                   Gm
pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                       F
'cause we were good kids


                              Gm
Don't get me wrong, I didn't have it bad
             (Eb)           Bb
I got enough loving from my mom and dad
                              Gm
But I don't think they really understood
                   (Eb)               Bb
When I said that I wanted to deal in Hollywood


                         Gm
I told 'em I'd be singing on tv
             (Eb)           Bb
The other kids were callin' me a wannabe
                            Gm
The older kids they started bugging me
                    (Eb)              Bb
But now they're all standing right in front of me


                            Eb    Bb
When mama said that it was okay
                      Dm7           Gm
Mama said that it was quite alright
                       Dm7             Gm
Our kinda people had a bed for the night
           F
and it was okay


                     Eb      Bb
Mama told us we were good kids
                         Dm7              Gm
and daddy told us never listen to the ones
               Dm7                   Gm
pointing nasty fingers and making fun
                       F
'cause we were good kids


Gm           Dm
I know which place im from
Eb        Bb
I know my home
Gm           C
When Im in doubt and struggling
Eb       Bb
thats where I'll go

       Gm                C
An old friend can give advice
          Eb                         Bb
when new friends only know the half story
               Gm                Am
That's why I always keep 'em tight
                   Eb
And while you're okay
            F
I said I'm okay

(You know what my mama said? You know what she told me?)



                            Eb    Bb
When mama said that it was okay
                      Dm7           Gm
Mama said that it was quite alright
