Gordon Lightfoot - Mama Said


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] D   C  D    C  D

[VERSE 1:]
                          
Mama said, "See it through
C                           D
Don't let the night put the bite on you 

Take your time, make your plan"
C                       D
Mama said, "Son be your own best man" 


[VERSE 2:]

Mama said, "Play it straight
C                      D
Do what you like, only do it up right 

Take your time, don't run wild" 
C                         D
Mama said, "Son you're my one man child"


[CHORUS:]
G                     A
Mama didn't have that know-it-all way 
    Bm                        A
She lived by the book and she prayed everyday 
G                       A
Never was a time when a rhythm or rhyme 
       Bm                   G
Or the words of a song ever slipped her mind


[VERSE 3:]
D
Mama said, "Go out there
C                        D
Play at the game and you better play fair 

Make sure your song gets sung" 
C                         D
Mama said, "Honey be your own big gun"


[INSTRUMENTAL:] D   C  D    C  D



[CHORUS:]
G                     A
Mama didn't care when I never came home 
    Bm                           A
She learned how to cope with the end of a phone 
G                    A
Dad went away to his place in the sky 
Bm                       G
Mom said, "Son, he was a real good guy"


[VERSE 4:]
D
Mom said, "See it through
C                           D
Don't let the night put the bite on you 

Take your time, don't run wild"
C                         D
Mama said, "Son you're my one man child 


[INSTRUMENTAL:] D   C  D    C  D

She lived by the book and she prayed everyday 
G                       A
Never was a time when a rhythm or rhyme 
       Bm                   G
Or the words of a song ever slipped her mind

Take your time, don't run wild"
