On The Wings Of Mama's Prayers
Jeff Bates
("Rainbow Man" CD)

Intro D-A-D
     G                                         D
I'd been to Church on Sunday, and I'd been in jail.
    Em              G                 D
And I put my family   through livin' hell.
     Bm         A              G
And I'd been a heavy cross to bear,
        A                D
On the wings of Mama's prayers.

   G               D     G                        D
I spent her last dollar      on somethin' bad for me.
    Em                    G                       D
I finally hit rock bottom, couldn't get up on my knees.
          Bm              A               G
But the strength came to lift me up from there,
         A               D
On the wings of Mama's prayers.

   Bm             D            G
I see her by the bed with her Bible open wide,
                D           A
Lookin' up at Heaven with tears in her eyes.
     Bm               G            D               G
She knew when I was troubled, she knew when I was scared.
    D                          A               D
And I found salvation on the wings of Mama's prayers.

Inst: D-A-D
       G                                      D
I was lost in the darkness searching for the end.
         Em                   G                D
But the light of Mama's love      led me back again.
        Bm                   A               G 
An' if I've got a place in Heaven, I'll get there,
         A               D 
On the wings of Mama's prayers.

   Bm                          G 
I see her by the bed with her Bible open wide,
                D          A            D 
Lookin' up at Heaven with tears in her eyes.
     Bm               G            D                G
She knew when I was troubled, she knew when I was scared.
    D                         A                D
And I found salvation on the wings of Mama's prayers.

 D                           A                D 
I'm still holding on to the wings of Mama's prayers.

Ending D-A-D
