But whenever, she never, would ever           turn me away.      No oh.

       Ab/Bb            Ab/Bb  Eb7M
I'd say   how can I be sure what is right or wrong
Eb7M Gb/Ab               Gb/Ab  Db7M
And   why does what I want always take so long
Db7M   A7M                                         A chord diagramBB                    Db/Eb   A chord diagramEb/FEb/F

I'd say, grandma what is love  will I ever find out?

Why are we so poor, what is life about
Db7M  A7M                  A chord diagramBB              Db/Eb     A chord diagramEb/FEb/F          Db/Eb A chord diagramEb/FEb/F

 She sort of smiled as she tucked me in,
         Eb7M           A chord diagramC7/EC7/E         A chord diagramD7D7   A chord diagramD/ED/E  D/Gb  A chord diagramGm7Gm7

But tonight she was slightly, remarkably,      different somehow
 Bb7M       Eb7M         Ab7M    A chord diagramGm7Gm7  A chord diagramFm7Fm7
Slowly she rocked, looking half asleep

What   she told me, would mould me, and holds me  together inside

          Ab/Bb                  Ab/Bb  Eb7M
She said all the things you ask you will know someday,
Eb7M Gb/Ab                  Gb/Ab Db7M         Db7M A7M

Can't get to better days lest you make it through the night

And although I'm all grown up, I still get confused.
Eb7M  Gb/Ab                     Gb/Ab  Db7M
 I   stumble through the dark, getting bumped and bruised,
Db7M  A7M                                              A chord diagramBB
