How To Play

INTRO
Am7  G/B  C  C  x2
 
VERSE 1
D                  G            F   F
Through the back window of our '59 wagon
  C                       C             Gsus      G
I watched my best friend Jamie slipping further away
D         G           F          F
I kept on waving till I couldn't see her
    C                  C           F  -   G        C
And through my tears I asked again why we couldn't stay
 
CHORUS
F              F        Gsus           G
Mama whispered softly, time will ease your pain
F               F               Gsus          G
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same
              C          C          G        C
And she said, how can I help you to say goodbye
     C        C             Gsus     G
It's okay to hurt, and it's okay to cry
F           G             C - C/E   F   F
Come let me hold you, and I will try
C/G       Am7      Gsus   G
How can I help you         to say goodbye
 
INTERLUDE
Am7  G/B  C  C  x2
 
VERSE 2
D                  G            F   F
I sat on our bed, she packed her suitcase
  C                       Gsus      G
I held a picture of our wedding day
D         G           F          F
Her hands were trembling, we both were crying
    C                  C           F  -   G        C
She kissed me gently, and then she quickly walked away
 
CHORUS
F              F        Gsus           G
I called up Mama, she said, time will ease your pain
F               F               Gsus          G
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same
   C          C          G        C
And she said, how can I help you to say goodbye
     C        C             Gsus     G
It's okay to hurt, and it's okay to cry
F           G             C - C/E   F   F
Come let me hold you, and I will try
C/G       Am7      Gsus   G
How can I help you         to say goodbye

D                  G            F   F
Sitting with Mama, alone in her bedroom
C                       C             Gsus      G
She opened her eyes, and then squeezed my hand
D         G           F          F
She said, I have to go now, my time here is over
        C                  C           F  -   G        C
And with her final words she tried to help me understand
 
CHORUS
F              F        Gsus           G
Mama whispered softly, time will ease your pain
F               F               Gsus          G
Life's about changing, nothing ever stays the same

And she said, how can I help you to say goodbye
     C        C             Gsus     G
It's okay to hurt, and it's okay to cry
F           G             C - C/E   F   F
Come let me hold you, and I will try
C/G       Am7      Gsus   G
How can I help you         to say goodbye
