D5                               G5
I remember as a baby barely one year old
       D5                                A5
When I first met Mama Courtney with her heart of gold
   D5                         G5
I didn?t know away back then how she?d influence me
      D5                           A5             D5
And I thank Mama Courtney for the man I grew to be

D5                                   G5
My mother lost her way in life Mama Courtney took me in
           D5                    A5
She became my foster Mother and my best friend
      D5                                  G5
She?d drive us kids around the town in a big black ghost mobile
        D5                        A5                D5
To this day I still remember how good she made us feel


          G5                               D5
There are many children in this world who suffer hurt and shame
        G5                           D5               A5
I thank all the Mama Courtney?s who took away their pain
    D5                            G5
God works in mysterious ways I believe this is true
           D5                              A5         D5
Though she had no children of her own she fostered 32

D5                          G5
Blackie was her husband he drove a pick-up truck
   D5                              A5
He worked at the power station to earn an honest buck
   D5                      A5
At weekends he go hunting squirrels up in Arkinsaw
                         A5                 D5
And every night when he tucked us in we would call him Pa

D5                                G5
Us kids are all now grown up and gone our separate ways
       D5                         A5
I look back on my childhood with many happy days
         D5                             G5
And when I go back to Sri-Port I place flowers on her grave
      D5                           A5                D5
And I thank Mama Courtney for all us kids that she saved
