MAMA KNOWS THE HIGHWAY (recorded by Hal Ketchum)
------------------------------------------------
[Actually in A; capo 2.]
[Each chord is one measure, except two chords joined by a hyphen are one
 measure total.  (Em - D, G - G/F#, C - G/B, G - D)]
[The chords with * have that little mandolin part with F# and G notes.]

G*   C*   G*  Em - D     G*   C*   G*   Em - D
[intro]

G                C              G     G
  Mama knows the highway by the songs
         G                G            D     D
When she hears a good one, she always sings along
G               C                  G   G
She don't ever worry 'bout what's gone
         G               G   D                    G       G
She says, "good country music will never steer you wrong"

G                C                 G      G
She talks to the truckers with her lights
G                       A                D      D
Maybe just a little bit more on Saturday nights
G            C           G        G
She knows a good road to paradise
           G              D             G         G
And that's just enough to keep the highway bright

      C               C             G*    G*
Yeah, Mama knows the highway now by heart

She can see the rain before it starts
G             C/G       G                  C/G
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars
G                 D            G*    C*   G*   Em - D

She knows how to watch the river bends
G                    D           G    G

She can gauge a cafe just by looking at the sign
A7           A7           C          C        D   D
  Little old places always share the grand design
