(Capo on 1st Fret...Per CD)...The C/G chord is 3X2013


Intro Chords:   Em   Cmaj7    Em   Cmaj7    Em    C    D   G


G           C/G               G
Daddy never went to church on Sunday
G                  C/G              G
He said that's one thing I'll never do
    C                           G
But mama never gave up she said one day
         Am7            C           Dsus4   D
He'll be sitting here beside me and you

G                C/G         G
I can still hear mama softly talking
G                      C/G           G
with her tears falling on her folded hands
C                           G
So that Easter Sunday Daddy walked in
Am7             C           Dsus4    D
That's when I began to understand


Chorus:

          Em    C             G     D
When mama prayed, good things happen
          Em    C            Dsus4    D
When mama prayed, lives were changed
         Em                  D/F#
Not much more than five foot tall
    G                 C     Em7 Am            D
But mountains big and small,    crumbled all away
             Em    Cmaj7     Em    C     D     G
When mama prayed


G             C/G            G
Seventeen and wild I hit the bottle
G        C/G               G
Doing anything I dang well pleased
C                                   G
Burning down life's highway at full throttle
      Am7           C             Dsus4   D
While mama burned a candle on her knees

G              C/G              G
Then one night I came home half sober
G          C/G             G
I saw mama kneeling in the den
     C                                 G
As I listened, her and Jesus talked it over
      Am7              C                  Dsus4   D
And I knew my restless days were 'bout to end


Chorus:

          Em    C             G     D
When mama prayed, good things happen
          Em    C            Dsus4   D
When mama prayed, lives were changed
         Em                  D/F#
Not much more than five foot tall
    G                 C     Em7 Am            D 
But mountains big and small,    crumbled all away
             G
When mama prayed


Bridge:

Bm                                 C
It isn't like everyone of them got answered
        G                                      D
But the times they weren't it seems to me were rare
    Bm                        C      Em7
You almost felt sorry for the devil
      Am              C             Dsus4   D
Cause heaven knows he didn't have a prayer

             Em     C     G     D
When mama prayed

Em    C      Dsus4    D


         Em                  D/F#
Not much more than five foot tall
    G                 C     Em7 Am            D
But mountains big and small,    crumbled all away
            Em      C    Em7
When mama prayed
     Am            Dsus4   D
They crumbled all away
             Em     Cmaj7     Em     Cmaj7     Em     C    D    G
