Mother's Prayer Song Lyrics and Chords by Eddy Arnold

 

Mother's Prayer
Recorded by Eddy Arnold
Written by Wally Fowler
G 
The postman came and brought a letter
 
It was from her  
C 
boy that went  
D7 
away
 
She gave him  
C 
up to join the  
G 
colors
 
Each time he writes  
D7 
I hear her  
G 
pray
 
Dear God watch  
C 
over my boy in  
G 
service
 
Help him win the victory  
D7 
there
 
And when this  
C 
cruel old war is  
G 
over
 
Send him home  
D7 
to mother's  
G 
prayer
The day he left they walked together
 
Down to the  
C 
train that took him  
D7 
away
 
She knew her  
C 
boy would be a  
G 
hero
 
Her smiling eyes  
D7 
just seemed to  
G 
pray
Repeat #2
Oh soldier boy don't ever forget her
 
She prays to  
C 
God for you each  
D7 
day
 
That harm may  
C 
never 
 
over
G 
take 
 
you
 
When you're fighting  
D7 
far 
 
a
G 
way
Repeat #2
