Writer: Ted Harris

Capo 2

intro C G C C

C C7 F
He got here and wrinkled scared and cryin’
C G
The she took him up and held him to her breast
C G C F
And he sure was glad to get what mama offered
C G C
Then he went to sleep and put his fears to rest

C C7 F
It didn’t seem to matter what he needed
C G
He could always count on mama to supply
C G C F
And regardless of the sleep she might be losin’
C G C
He always found a twinkle in her eye

F G C
*There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
F G C
Creation’s most unique and precious pearls
F G C F
And heaven help us always to remember
Dm G C
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

She taught him all the attributes of greatness
That she knew he couldn’t learn away from home
And by the time she wore the coxer off her bible
Her hair was gray and her little man was gone

*There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas
Creation’s most unique and precious pearls
And heaven help us always to remember
That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world

F G C
Yes, the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world
