Papa Loved Mama - Garth Brooks chords

Singer/Band: Garth Brooks


Verse 1
[E7]Papa drove a truck nearly all his life
You know it [A7]drove mama crazy being a trucker's wife
The [B7]part she couldn't handle was the being alone
I guess she [C]needed more to hold than just a [B7]telephone
[E7]Papa called mama each & every night
Just to [A7]ask her how she was & if us kids were alright
[B7]Mama would wait for that call to come in
But when [C]daddy'd hang up she was [B7]gone again [E7]
Chorus 1
[A7]Mama was a looker, Lord how she shined
[E7]Papa was a good'n but the jealous kind
[A7]Papa loved mama, mama loved men
[Em]Mama's in the graveyard, [B7]papa's in the [E7]pen
Verse 2
[E7]Well, it was bound to happen & one night it did
Papa came [A7]home & it was just us kids
[B7]He had a dozen roses & a bottle of wine
If he was [C]looking to surprise us he was [B7]doing fine
I [E7]heard him cry for mama up & down the hall
Then I [A7]heard a bottle break against the bedroom wall
[B7]That old diesel engine made an eerie sound
When papa [C]fired it up & headed [B7]into [E7]town
Chorus 2
[A7]Well, the picture in the paper showed the scene real well
[E7]Papa's rig was buried in the local Motel
[A7]The desk clerk said he saw it all real clear
He never [C]hit the brakes & he [B7]was shifting [E7]gears
Chorus 1
[A7]Mama was a looker, Lord how she shined
[E7]Papa was a good'n but the jealous kind
[A7]Papa loved mama, mama loved men
[Em]Mama's in the graveyard, [B7]papa's in the [E7]pen
Outro
[Em]Mama's in the graveyard, [B7]papa's in the [E7]pen
Mama's in the graveyard, papa's in the pen
