The Sweetest Gift
Recorded by Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris
Written by James B. Coats

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)
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
