Mama told me when I was young

Come sit beside me, my only son 
           C      G          Am  am7
And listen closely to what I say 
           C

It'll help you some sunny day. Oh Yah!

Oh, take your time... Don't live too fast, 
              C   G              Am    am7
Troubles will come and they will pass. 
              C          G                Am    am7
You'll find a woman, yea yea, you'll find love, 
          C
And don't forget son,

Forget your lust, for the rich man's gold 
             C   G            Am    am7
All that you need, is in your soul,

And you can do this, oh baby, if you try.

Is to be satisfied.
