Blame It On Mama Chords

   
Standard Tuning

Intro: All in D

D
When I was 6 or 7
               A
Mama tucked me in
        D
With a lullaby and it
                       A
Made my eyes open wide again
         G                            
I would lie awake and wonder
       D               G
Why a boy named Billy Joe
        D
Jumped off the Tallahatchee Bridge
        A
To the river far below

Chorus:
G
Blame it on mama
 	  D
And the songs she loved to sing
     G 	  	  	    D
I'm not from Louisiana but that don't mean a thing
 	 G 	  	 D
Don't come from Alabama or a hill from Tennessee
 	 C
Just blame it on mama, she sang (she sang)
           D
The country into me

D
I just loved to listen
 	  	             A
As she'd sing those story songs
 	 D
'Bout a coat of many colors
 	  	       A
Or a girl named Delta Dawn
         G 	  	  	 
When the lights went out in Georgia
 	 D 	          G
I would beg for just one more
D
All about Fancy and the pretty red satin 
A
Dancing dress she wore

(Chorus)

G 	  	     D
I'm a coal miner's daughter
G 	  	     D
Lovin my preacher's son
 	 G 	  	        D
I have walked the streets of Laredo
 	  	 A
Stared down the barrel of a law man's gun

G 	  	        D
I've grown roots and I've got claims
G 	  	      D
To places I've never been
G 	  	        D
And when I sing those songs it takes me
A
Right back home again

D

(Chorus)

    D
The country into me, yeah
