David Allan Coe - Heavenly Father, Holy Mother guitar chord

David Allan Coe

Heavenly Father, Holy Mother

F Bb

If grandpa was alive right now

C F

Ain’t no tellin’ what he’d have to say

Bb

Why he had fifteen wives all living with him

C F

When he finally pasted away

Bb

And though I just got two now momma

Bb F

That’s enough to keep me satisfied

C

I haven’t had a son yet

Bb C F

But the good Lord knows the three of us have tried.

Pre-Chorus:

Bb C

Cause the Pennsylvania Dutch

Bb F

That we once spoke has been forgotten

Bb F C

And the Mormon way of life is almost gone

Bb C F C Bb

But now and then we gather down in Salt Lake City

Bb C F

To raise our voices in a joyful song.

Chorus:

F

And we sing:

Bb F

Heavenly Father, Holy Mother

Keeper of our children

C

Tiller of the land

F Bb

Take us to the river

F

In a horse and buggy

Give us our salvation

C F

Help us make our stand.

F Bb

No ma’am, I did go to see

C F

The reverend bring him young while I was there

And I’m sure glad to know you

Bb C F

Wanted him to mention my name in a pray

Bb

I hope he did not preach about

F

The young folks that refuse to make a change

C Bb

And if he did I’m sure I got a little more

C F

Than my share of the blame.
