Intro  Chorus  - played slow 

G            C                     G 

Mother – please comfort me 

G                                                           D 

Your endless love and gentle touch - you give so easily 

G                                       C                   G                                                      

Oh Mother dear I must say,  I love you faithfully 

G                                                       D                   G 

Please take me in your arms again – It’s where I want to be 

C          G         D        G         C         G         D        D 

G                                                     C                       G 

When I was young you said that I was smarter then the rest 

G                                                       D 

You brought me up to follow rules and do my very best 

G                                                        C                    G 

But I had to learn the hard way, now I’m filled with much regret 

G                                             D                     G 

The life that I had chosen then, I never will forget 


The judge said son you just can’t run from all those things you did. 

The jury’s found you guilty although you’re just a kid. 

And now its time to pay your fine…for what I must decree 

The jailers come to lock you up and throw away the key 



then      C       G         D        G         C         G         D        D 


As I lay inside this cell so dark and dreary through the years. 

I think of all the times that I had driven you to tears 

Of all the people that I hurt and lives that I have taken 

The one that meant the most to me, I never have forsaken  


                 D                                                    C                   G                                                                                    A mother love it never ends, its given free and selfless          

                 D                                                     C                     D                                                                                  A mother love is all I need when feeling worn and helpless 

Instrumental – same as Chorus   plus     C     G     D     G     C      G     D     D 

Thinking back to all those times and crimes that I committed 

Apologies can’t help me now  for all that I admitted 

After all the talk, I’ll walk the walk – last meal and cigarette 

The day has come to reconcile and pay this awful debt. 

Instrumental – same as Chorus   plus     C     G     D     G     C      G     D     D 

Tomorrow dear I’ll long be gone, my spirit soon be free 

Sad memories of 30 years will hang by that oak tree 

God save my soul and let it rest near mother dear forever 

My one last wish is one last kiss before they pull the lever 

Chorus   then      C       G         D        G         C         G         D        D
