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
