.... Does your mother know, you had to go some-day
1                     *         7b        4       3

        1m      1m7      6maj7         1m    1m7    6
But the letters that you write, in the faded winter light

Just tell her, ...... they tell her
            1m      4                  6      4
That you've got ten dollars and you'll be all right

1                     *        7b        4          3
.... Does your mother know how deep your love could be
4              6m      3                  4               5       *

            1m      4                 6          4
That you've got ten dollars, and your rent costs eight
         6       3                      6                   1
