[Intro]
G   G   G   C   C   G   D   G   G

[Verse 1]
G G C GSome of the fondest memories I have of childhood days,
C G G D DAre of nights after supper, when the dishes were put away,
G G G CMom would get out her old songbook, and gather us around,
C G D G GAnd we'd sing the songs of Zion, 'till the glory came on down...
[Chorus]
D D C GWe would sing rock of ages, beyond cloudy days,
C G G D DWhen we all get to heaven, and the glory land way...
G G G CWhen life became a struggle, it seemed that all it took,
C G D G GAnd we'd forget our troubles, was Mama's old songbook...
[Interlude] G G G C C G D G G [Verse 2]
G G C GMany times we'd be discouraged, we'd sing of better days,
C G G D DHow happy it would make us, as the songs took us away,
G G G CTo a land where there's no sickness, our labors all be o'er,
C G D G GAnd we could sing forever, on that happy golden shore...
[Chorus]
D D C GWe would sing rock of ages, beyond cloudy days,
C G G D DWhen we all get to heaven, and the glory land way...
G G G CWhen life became a struggle, it seemed that all it took,
C G D G GAnd we'd forget our troubles, was Mama's old songbook...
[Interlude] G G G C C G D G G [Verse 3]
G G C GTo us that book was precious, we held it oh so dear,
C G G D D'Cause on the pages of it, we found hope and cheer . . .
G G G CIn a world filled with troubles, we know'd that we could look,
C G D G GRight into heaven's portal, through Mama's old songbook...
[Chorus]
D D C GWe would sing rock of ages, beyond cloudy days,
C G G D DWhen we all get to heaven, and the glory land way...
G G G CWhen life became a struggle, it seemed that all it took,
C G D G GAnd we'd forget our troubles, was Mama's old songbook...
[Outro]
C G D G GYeah we'd forget our troubles, with Mama's old songbook......
