Mama's Opry
By Sunny Sweeney
CD: Heartbreaker's Hall Of Fame (2007)
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

    G                             C
She grew up plain and simple in a farming town
    D                                                            G 
Her daddy played the fiddle and used to do the calling when they had hoedowns
             Em                                                    C 
She said the neighbors would come and they'd move all my grandma's furniture 'round
               C                                             D  
And there'd be twenty or more there on the old wooden floor, dancin' to a country sound
    G                                    C
The Carters and Jimmy Rodgers played her favorite songs
       D                                                G 
And on Saturday nights there was a radio show and she'd sing along
     A                                C
I'll never forget her face when she revealed to me
           G                            D            G
That she'd dreamed about singing at The Grand Ol' Opry

Her eyes, oh, how they sparkled when she sang those songs
She was hanging the clothes on the line, I was a kid just a hummin' along
Well, I'd be playing in the grass, to her, what might've seemed, obliviously
There ain't no doubt about it: she sure made her mark on me
She played old gospel records on the phonograph
She turned them up loud and we'd sing along, how those days have passed
Just now that I am older it occurs to me
That I was singing in the grandest opry

            G                      C
And we sang Sweet Rose of Sharon, Abide With Me
       D                                G 
'Til I ride The Gospel Ship to Heaven's Jubilee
            Em                          C
And In That Great Triumphant Morning my soul will be free
       C                              D                 
And My Burdens Will Be Lifted when my Saviour's face I see
           G                            C 
So I Don't Want to Get Adjusted to This World below
      D                                 G
But I know He'll Pilot Me 'til it comes time to go
    A                                C  
Oh, nothing on this earth is half as dear to me
       G           D         G 
As the sound of my Mama's Opry
