When Mama Prayed
Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Paul Overstreet and Rory Lee

C F C
Daddy never went to church on Sunday
F C
He said that's one thing I'll never do
F C
But mama never gave up she said one day
Dm F G7
He'll be sitting here beside me and you

C F C
I can still hear mama softly talking
F C
With her tears falling on her folded hands
F C
So that Easter Sunday Daddy walked in
Dm F G7
That's when I began to understand

Am F C G7
When mama prayed good things happen
Am F G7
When mama prayed lives were changed
Am G7
Not much more than five foot tall
C F Am Dm G7
But mountains big and small crumbled all away
Am F Am F G7 C
When mama prayed

C F C
Seventeen and wild I hit the bottle
F C
Doing anything I dang well pleased
F C
Burning down life's highway at full throttle
Dm F G7
While mama burned a candle on her knees

C F C
Then one night I came home half sober
F C
I saw mama kneeling in the den
F C
As I listened she and Jesus talked it over
Dm F G7
And I knew my restless days were 'bout to end

Am F C G7
When mama prayed good things happen
Am F G7
When mama prayed lives were changed
Am G7
Not much more than five foot tall
C F Am Dm G7
But mountains big and small crumbled all away
Am F
When mama prayed

Em F
It isn't like every one of them got answered
C G7
But the times they weren't it seems to me were rare
Em F Am
You almost felt sorry for the devil
Dm F G7
Cause heaven knows he didn't have a prayer
Am
When mama prayed

F Am G7
Not much more than five foot tall
C F Am Dm G7
But mountains big and small crumbled all away
Am F Am
When mama prayed

Dm G7 Am F
They crumbled all away when mama prayed
