Mama gave me to Jesus when I was a boy

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

But I had some wild seeds to sow

††††††††††† F †††††††††††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††† F

When almost everyone gave up on me

C††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† C

Mama just wouldnít let go



†††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††

††††††††† Thank God for a Mama who knew how to pray

†† †††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G

††††††††† That Jesus would keep me from harm

††††††††† †††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††† F

††††††††† I went on my own when I went astray

††††††††† ††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††† ††††††Am††††††† F

††††††††† But she prayed me back into Godís arms

††††††††† ††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† C

††††††††† Oh, she prayed me back into Godís arms


†††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††† C

Now I have a message to send over yonder

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

Jesus, please let Mama know

†††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† F

Iím not where I headed, but Iím on my way

†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† C

Cause she showed me the right way to go
