Momma Can We Hold You (One More Time Before You Go?)
By Donna G Fowler
Tempo 95, Chord C
Campfire, Fingerpicking Ballad
Momma can we hold you, one more time before go?
And tell you that we love you so, that you’ll always know.
Mom you only asked for, just a little of our time
But our lives got in the way and now we’re out of rhyme
You never asked for very much, a Sunday here or there
You brought all us together, you taught us how to care
Now that you’re no longer here, it’s all we know to do
Is tell you how we miss you so and say a prayer for you
Mommas are supposed to be around for all time
You left us for a home above in the sweet bye-and-bye
And as we look up to the sky we hold back our tears
Wishing praying to ourselves you were once again right here.
Momma we are sure there are, many sights to see
Dinner with your mom and dad and other family
We know you’re holding on to dad, a little more each day
But we miss you here on earth, wish you didn’t go away
We’re trying to do our very best, now that you are gone
Days seem long, nights have no end, it’s hard to carry on
If memories are all that we have left, to remember you today
May they soothe us comfort us and send us on our way.
Sing Chorus x more time (draw out the last line)
