{intro} 
 

G5                C5              G5     G5 
  Mama knows the highway by the songs 
         G5                G5            D5     D5 
When she hears a good one, she always sings along 
G5               C5                  G5   G5 
She don't ever worry 'bout what's gone 
         G5               G5   D5                    G5       G5 
She says, "good country music will never steer you wrong" 
 

G5                C5                 G5      G5 
She talks to the truckers with her lights 
G5                       A5                D5      D5 
Maybe just a little bit more on Saturday nights 
G5            C5           G5        G5 
She knows a good road to paradise 
           G5              D5             G5         G5 
And that's just enough to keep the highway bright 
 

      C5               C5             G5     G5  
Yeah, Mama knows the highway now by heart 
G5   -   G5    E5               D5    D5 
She can see the rain before it starts 
G5             C5       G5                  C5 
Looking clear through a windshield full of stars 
G5                 D5            G5     C5    G5    E5 - D5 
  Mama knows the highway now by heart 
 

G5              C5      G5      G5 
She can tell Wyoming by the wind 
        G5            G5              G5             D5   D5 
She can tell another trucker by the rig that he's in 
G5                C5                G5    G5 
She knows how to watch the river bends 
G5                    D5           G5    G5 
She knows where the real South begins 
 
Well, Mama knows the highway now by heart

A5           A5           C5          C5        D5   D5 
  Little old places always share the grand design
