The Sweetest Gift Recorded by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris Written by James B. Coats
C One day a mother came to a prison G7 C To see an erring but precious son
She told the warden how much she loved him G7 C It did not matter what he had done
She did not bring (bring to him) a parole or pardon (pardon plea) G7 C She brought no silver (brought no gold) no pomp or style (none to see) F It was a halo (halo bright) sent down from heaven (heaven's light) C G7 C The sweetest gift a mother's smile
She left a smile you can remember G7 C She's gone to heaven from heartache's grief
Those walls around you will never change her G7 C You were her baby and ever will be
Repeat #2 x2
