Jesus and Mama
written by: Danny Mayo and James Dean Hicks

[Intro]

GCGC

G
1.I made a wish upon a star
C
I could have a brand new car
G
Got tired of wishing
C
So I stole one

G
Seventeen and knew it all
C
My dreams were big but my thoughts were small
G
So many roads somehow I chose
C D
The wrong one

G
C.But Jesus and mama always loved me
C
Even when the devil took control
G C
Jesus and mama always loved me
D
This I know

2.I felt tried most all my life
Found new kinds of lows and highs
Never been a husband but I had a lot of wives
To hold me

Headstrong, stubborn, couldn’t be told
Like a wild horse that couldn’t be rode
A rainbow chaser hungry for gold
And still searchin’

Repeat Chorus

3.I wish mom could see me now
And how I’ve turned it all around
Lately I’ve been going down
The right road

Life’s a picture that you paint
With blues and grays and cans of canvas
Heaven knows I’m not a saint
But I know

Repeat Chorus
