A Picture Of Your Mother

Song Author Tom T. Hall Performer: Tom T. Hall Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]My little girl and I lost [F]mamma just three years [C]ago  
And [F]now that she is [C]older [D7]there are things she wants to [G7]know   
She [C]said please daddy tell me [F]bout my mother cause I [C]miss her
I [F]said get pen and [C]paper and [G7]I'll help your draw her [C]picture

I [F]said first draw a heart so big [C]there's room for little else
Then [F]write a million for the things [C]that she denied [G7]herself
[C]Draw a rose the kind of which [F]there'll never be [C]another
And [F]when you finish you [C]will have a [G7]picture of your [C]mother

If you want to make the picture [F]even more com[C]plete
[F]You could draw a [C]little cottage [D7]draw it nice and [G7]neat   
[C]Draw a bright and shining sun[F] up in the sky[C] above
But [F]then again I [C]guess it's pretty [G7]hard to draw my [C]love

So [F]draw a heart so big there's [C]room for little else
Then [F]write a million for the things [C]that she denied [G7]herself
[C]Draw a rose the kind of which [F]there'll never be [C]another
And [F]when you finish you [C]will have a [G7]picture of your [C]mother


My little girl and I lost mamma just three years ago
And now that she is older there are things she wants to know
She said please daddy tell me bout my mother cause I miss her
I said get pen and paper and I'll help your draw her picture

I said first draw a heart so big there's room for little else
Then write a million for the things that she denied herself
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother

If you want to make the picture even more complete
You could draw a little cottage draw it nice and neat
Draw a bright and shining sun up in the sky above
But then again I guess it's pretty hard to draw my love

So draw a heart so big there's room for little else
Then write a million for the things that she denied herself
Draw a rose the kind of which there'll never be another
And when you finish you will have a picture of your mother
