CHORUS:   
Bm    G         A        D                   G           A        D 
No, I would not give you false hope, on this strange and mournful day, 
        G          A         D   Bm     Em     D       A 
but the mother and child re..un..ion is only a motion away. 
  
#1.   
A                Bm                               A 
Oh, whoa, little darling of mine, I can't for the life of me, 
           Bm                           A 
remember a sadder day, I know they say, let it be, 
                       Bm                                G 
but it just don't work out that way, and the course of a lifetime runs, 
         A 
over and over again. 

CHORUS:
  
#2.   
A                Bm                              A 
Oh, whoa, little darling of mine, I just can't believe it's so, 
                    Bm                              A 
and though it seems strange to say, I've never been laid so low, 
             Bm                               G 
in such a mysterious way, and the course of a lifetime runs, 
              A      
over and over again. 
  
CHORUS:  

OUTRO:   
        G          A       D        G      A       D 
Oh, the mother and child reunion is only a motion away, 
        G          A         D   Bm     Em     D       A 
Oh, the mother and child re..un..ion is only a motion away(x2.)
