Mama Knows The Highway

	  		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 
G   -   G/F#    Em               D    D 
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 
  Mama knows the highway now by heart 
 
G              C      G      G 
She can tell Wyoming by the wind 
        G            G              G             D   D 
She can tell another trucker by the rig that he's in 
G                C                G    G 
She knows how to watch the river bends 
G                    D           G    G 
She knows where the real South begins 
 
Well, Mama knows the highway now by heart 
She can see the rain before it starts 
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars 
Mama knows the highway now by heart 
 
G  C  G  G    G  G  D  D 
{guitar solo} 
G  C  G  G    G  D  G  G 
{piano solo} 
 
C   -   G/B      Am         G   -    D       C 
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 
 
Mama knows the highway now by heart 
She can see the rain before it starts 
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars 
G                 D            Em     Em  
  Mama knows the highway now by heart 
 
G               D            G     C    G    Em - D 
Mama knows the highway now by heart 
               G       C      G        Em - D 
Mama knows the highway, yeah, yeah yeah 
G       C      G        Em - D
