[Intro]

Dm     C     Am


[Verse]

Dm
Mama she has taught me well
C                Am
Told me when I was young
Dm
Son your life's an open book
      C                    Am
Don't close it before it's done
Dm
The brightest flame burns quickest
      C               Am
Thats what I heard her say
D
The son's heart's owed to mother
    C             Am
But I must find my way 


[Chorus]

Dm  C  Am    G
Let my heart go
Dm  C    Am  G
Let your son grow
     Dm  C  Am    G
Mama let my heart go
   Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
Or let this heart be still.


[Instrumental]

Dm     C     Am


[Verse]

Dm
Rebel, my new last name
C                Am
Wild blood in my veins
Dm
Apron strings around my neck
    C              Am
The mark that still remains
Dm  
Left home at an early age
    C              Am
of what I heard was wrong  
Dm
I never asked forgiveness
    C             Am
But what I said is done


[Chorus]

Dm  C  Am    G
Let my heart go
Dm  C    Am  G
Let your son grow
     Dm  C  Am    G
Mama let my heart go
   Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
Or let this heart be still.


[Bridge]

Dm      G
Never I asked of you
C          F
but never I gave
Dm                  G
But you gave me your emptiness
      C            F
I now take to my grave

Dm      G
Never I asked of you
C          F
but never I gave
Dm                  G
But you gave me your emptiness
      C            F
I now take to my grave
     Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
So let this heart be still.


[Verse]

Dm
Mama now I'm coming home
         C               Am
I'm not all you wished of me
Dm
A mother's love for her son
C                 Am
Unspoken, help me be
Dm
yeah I took your love for granted
           C                Am
and all the things you said to me
Dm
I need your arms to welcome me
     C                Am
That cold stone's all I see 


[Chorus]

Dm  C  Am    G
Let my heart go
Dm  C    Am  G
Let your son grow
     Dm  C  Am    G
Mama let my heart go
   Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
Or let this heart be still.

Dm  C   Am   Dm
Let my heart go
     Dm  C   Am   Dm
Mama let my heart go
          Dm  C   Am   Dm
You never let my heart go
     Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
Mama let this heart be still.


[Bridge]

(solo over Dm G C F twice)

Dm      G
Never I asked of you
C          F
but never I gave
Dm                  G
But you gave me your emptiness
      C            F
I now take to my grave

Dm      G
Never I asked of you
C          F
but never I gave
Dm                  G
But you gave me your emptiness
      C            F
I now take to my grave

     Dm   C   Bb    G  Am
So let this heart be still.
