Mother Of God

	  		Tab by Matt Morrow, PattyNet.net 

Standard Tuning 

C    G    C 

C                                        F 
All you kids get out the back door, I've never seen her this mad before 

    C 
She took all her favorite things down from the window 

    G 
And broke them all over her clean floor 

     C                            F 
It's Saturday at the mansion, the oldest boy walks with a slouch 

    C 
The young ones are wild in back of the house 

        G                        C 
And she gave up and went back to sleep on the couch 

F                               C 
Something as simple as boys and girls 

     G                                 Am 
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world 

F                                     C 
Something as hard as a prayer on your back 

           G                Am 
Can wait a long time for an answer 

When I was little I'd stare at her picture 
And talk to the mother of God 
I swear sometimes I'd see her lips move 
Like she was trying to say something to me 
When I was eighteen I moved to Florida 
Like everyone sick of the cold does 
And I waited on old people waiting to die 
Oh, I waited on them until I was 

Something as simple as boys and girls 
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world 
Something as hard as a prayer on your back 
Can wait a long time for an answer 

C       G  F       C         G 

C       G  F       C         G        C 

Now I'm wearing my footsteps into this floor 
One day I won't live here anymore 
And someone will wonder who lived here before 
And went on their way 
I live too many miles from the ocean 
And I'm getting older and odd 
I get up every morning with my cup of coffee 
And I talk to the mother of God 

Something as simple as boys and girls 
Gets tossed all around and lost in the world 
Something as har as a prayer on your back 
Can wait a long time for an answer 
Can wait a long time for an answer 

F      G        F       G 

F           G       F                    G 
Maybe it's alright, maybe we won't fight anymore 

F             G              Am     G     F       G 
Maybe love is waiting at the end of every road 

        F             G 
I don't know, I don't know 

    F                 G   F       G      F     G 
And maybe, maybe it's alright 

F      G      Am    F     G
