A Picture Of Your Mother
By Tom T Hall
Tabbed By Larry Mofle
9/5/2011


Capo 1

Intro: F C G C

   C                           F                 C
My little girl and I lost Mama just three years ago
    F               C               D7                  G
And now that she is older there are things she wants to know
    C                                    F               C
She said, "Please Daddy tell me 'bout my mother 'cause I miss her."
  F                  C              G                  C
I said, "Get pen and paper and I'll help your draw her picture."

  F                                        C
I said, "First draw a heart so big there's room for little else
     F                                   C             G
Then write a million for the things that she denied herself
C                                      F         C 
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
    F               C               G               C
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother


"If you want to make the picture even more complete
You could draw a little cottage, draw it nice and neat
Draw a bright and shining sun up in the sky above
But then again I guess its pretty hard to draw my love

"So draw a heart so big that there is room for little else
Write a million for the things that she denied herself
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother."
