Album: Figure 8

Gm: 355333
C:  335553
D#: 668886
A#: 688766

In the verses, play an A between A# an Gm and a D between C and D#.

[Verse 1:]
Gm           C D#                A#
the question is wouldn't mama be proud?
there's a silver lining in the corporate cloud
and the pretty post that you're taking as as an NCO 
C               D#
of the great pretender
i should sure think so
         A#      C  D#
wouldn't mama be proud?

[Verse 2:]
Gm               C     D#                  A#
"can I take your order?" asks the heavenly host
ticket to the jetstream blowing coast to coast
the long stem glasses, a movie and a pleasant dream in mid air
C                        D#
"you gotta tell me quickly
'cos we're almost there"
         A#       C  D#
wouldn't mama be proud?

D#                 D
pointed out of the window
A#              C
at the sky gone black
D#                       D
"kid you're on the right track"

Gm C D# A# (2x)

[Verse 3:]
Gm            C        D#                    A#
if i send you postcards from the side of the road
photographs of moving parts about to implode
if i crawl to keep it together like you say you know i can do
C                  D#
to transmit a moment
from me to you
         A#       C  D#  Gm
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?
wouldn't mama be proud?

this song is way easier to play with a Capo on 3
Gm = Em
C = A
D# = C
A# = G
D = B (i think this works better as a B7)
