        A                                                      
1.    LAST NIGHT AS I LAY DOWN TO SLEEP
        E              A                  
I HEARD SOMEONE BEGIN TO WEEP
              D              A                          
THEN I GOT UP JUST TO SEE
                         E          A
I HEARD MY MOTHER PRAYING FOR ME
 
       A                                                  
2.    SHE WAS KNEELING BY HER BED
            E                 A
AND TEARS OF PAIN WERE BEING SHED
                       D           A
SHE SAID, “DEAR GOD HEAR MY PLEA”
                         E           A
I HEARD MY MOTHER PRAYING FOR ME
 
 
      A                                               
3.    I GOT MY BIBLE AND SAT DOWN
          E            A
AND IN THE HOLY BOOK I FOUND
                  D           A
THE WAY TO END THIS MISERY
                    E                 A
THANK GOD MY MOTHER PRAYED FOR ME
 
      A                                            
4.    I READ IT ON IN TO THE NIGHT
           E             A
AND SOON BEGAN TO SEE THE LIGHT
                  D               A
AND NOW AT LAST MY SOUL IS FREE
                    E                A
THANK GOD MY MOTHER PRAYED FOR ME
