(intro)

G                C              G     G
  Mama knows the highway by the songs
         G                G            D     D
When she hears a good one, she always sings along
G               C                  G   G
She don't ever worry 'bout what's gone
         G               G   D                    G       G
She says, "good country music will never steer you wrong"

G                C                 G      G
She talks to the truckers with her lights
G                       A                D      D
Maybe just a little bit more on Saturday nights
G            C           G        G
She knows a good road to paradise
           G              D             G         G
And that's just enough to keep the highway bright

      C               C             G*    G*
Yeah, Mama knows the highway now by heart
G   -   G/F#    Em               D    D
She can see the rain before it starts
G             C/G       G                  C/G
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars
G                 D            G*    C*   G*   Em - D
  Mama knows the highway now by heart

G              C      G      G
She can tell Wyoming by the wind
        G            G              G             D   D
She can tell another trucker by the rig that he's in
G                C                G    G
She knows how to watch the river bends
G                    D           G    G
She knows where the real South begins

Well, Mama knows the highway now by heart
She can see the rain before it starts
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars
Mama knows the highway now by heart

G  C  G  G    G  G  D  D
(guitar solo)
G  C  G  G    G  D  G  G
(piano solo)

C   -   G/B      Am         G   -    D       C
She can gauge a cafe just by looking at the sign
A7           A7           C          C        D   D
  Little old places always share the grand design

Mama knows the highway now by heart
She can see the rain before it starts
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars
G                 D            Em*    Em*
  Mama knows the highway now by heart

G               D            G*    C*   G*   Em - D
Mama knows the highway now by heart
               G*      C*     G*       Em - D
Mama knows the highway, yeah, yeah yeah
G*      C*     G*       Em - D
(instrumental; repeat and fade)
