Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Original recorded version is in Bb. For this version, capo up 3 frets (you can hear
the high Bb note on the high E string, made by using a G formation on the 6th fret).
They probably actually play it in "B" tuned down 1/2 step, but this is an easy way to
do the Am descending bass pattern.

All chords are choked off with the heel of your pick hand for the choppy rhythm feel

[Verse]

         G                              F
When you grow up livin' like a good boy oughta
         Am                              G
And your mama takes a shine to her best son
          G                                    F
Something different all the girls they seem to like you
             Am                                        G
Cause you're handsome like to talk and a whole lot of fun
 
             Am             Am/G
But now your girl's gone a missin'
         Am/F#            D     G      
And your house has got an empty bed
             Am               Am/G
The folks'll wonder 'bout the wedding
           A/F#        D        G
They won't listen to a word you said


[Chorus]

G                            
Gonna take your mama out all night
            F                      
Yeah we'll show her what it's all about
               C        
We'll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne
              G
We'll let the good times all roll out
           G
And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad
             F
We're gonna sing along no matter what
            C
Because the dancers don't mind at the New Orleans
            G                      F F F# G
If you tip 'em and they make a cut

 
G                     F     
Do it -take your mama out all night
          C                                             G   F F F# G
So she'll have no doubt that we're doing oh the best we can
             G                    F
We're gonna do it -take your mama out all night
        C                                            G    F F F# G
You can stay up late 'cause baby you're a full grown man

G F Am
       G                                 F
It's a struggle livin' like a good boy oughta
       Am                                  G
In the summer watchin' all the girls pass by
          G                                  F
When your mama heard the way that you'd been talking
                Am                             G
I tried to tell you that all she'd wanna do is cry

 
[Verse]

       Am                     Am/G
Now we end up takin' the long way home
Am/F#                         D                G
Lookin' overdressed wearin' buckets of stale cologne
        Am                        Am/G
It's so hard to see streets on a country road
          Am/F#
When your glasses in the garbage
         D                      G
And your Continental's just got towed


[Chorus]

      G                            
Gonna take your mama out all night
           F                      
Yeah we'll show her what it's all about
               C        
We'll get her jacked up on some cheap champagne
               G
We'll let the good times all roll out

And if the music ain't good, well it's just too bad

We're gonna sing along no matter what

Because the dancers don't mind at the New Orleans
       G                           F F F# G
If you tip 'em and they make a cut


[Bridge]

G                     F
Do it -take your mama out all night
          C                                             G    F F F# G
So she'll have no doubt that we're doing oh the best we can
            G                     F
We're gonna do it -take your mama out all night
        F                                            G   F F F# G
