My Mother’s Voice
©Jody Healy version 1 started 2004 Version 2 in 2012 version 3 in 2013

I IV I
At my mothers funeral I remembered her words
IV I
Fifty years with my father, these days unheard
IV I
Right before she died, they kissed tenderly
V I
She said I love you, you’re a blessing to me.
I IV I
Experts have studied long lasting love
V I
They found what my mother knew, from heaven above
IV I
Her words stay with me when my heart pulls away
V V
From the one that I love, I remember she’d say
Chorus:
I IV
Move toward each other with all of your might
V I
It doesn’t really matter whose wrong or right
Em IV
Keep the goal of love within your sight
IV I
Move toward each other, let Io of the fight.
Last time 3 x
IV I
(Move toward each other, with all of your might
Move toward each other let Io fo the fiIht
Move toward each other finV your VeliIht)
I IV I
My frustrating husband, it wasn’t love at first sight.
IV I
We broke up three times, because of our fights
IV I
His heat and his humor, reeled me in once more,
V I
My mother’s voice, led us safely to shore.
I
My Mother’s VoiIVe (IVontinueV)
I IV I
Everyday I live, her words in my home
V I
Now that I, have two kids of my own
I IV I
And when they fight, two countries at war
V V
I hear her voice, like never before … chorus
