Mama

Chords and lyrics for Mama by Connie Francis

 
Ave  
Bdim 
Maria
 
She  
Cm 
said: "My daughter, I  
Ddim 
beg 
 
 
Fm 
of 
 
you
 
I have  
G# 
a with  
D 
that must come true
 
The  
Cm 
last thing  
D 
you can do for  
A#aug 
Mama
 
Please  
Bdim 
promise 
 
 
Ddim 
me that you will  
G 
stay
 
And  
C 
take my place while I’m away
Bdim 
And 
 
 
G 
give the children love each day"
 
I had to cry, what could  
Am 
 
say?
C 
How hard  
Am 
I tried  
C 
to find the words
 
I prayed  
F 
she wouldn’t see  
C 
my 
 
cry
 
So  
Fm 
much to say that should be heard
 
But only time  
Cm 
to say goodbye to Mama
 
They say  
E 
in time that you’ll forget
 
Yet still today my  
C 
eyes are  
D 
wet
 
I  
E 
tell myself to  
Am 
smile for  
G 
Mama
 
Now soon  
Em 
there’ll be another  
E 
spring
 
And I  
A 
will start remembering
 
The way she  
Cm 
loved to hear me sing
 
Her favorite song,  
G 
"Ave 
 
Maria"
Ave Maria
Am 
The children  
Fm 
have all  
A 
grown up  
Bdim 
now
 
I  
Dm 
kept my promise to Mama
Ddim 
Fm 
I cannot guide them anymore
 
I’ve done  
Cdim 
my best all  
Gdim 
for 
 
Mama
 
Ave  
G 
Maria
 
But still it seems so very  
F 
small
A 
For all she  
B 
did for me
