                My Little Grey Haired Mother In The West: Wilf Carter
Chorded by Gary W, 10 Sept 2006
Note: I am not sure the word flickering is correct.

Capo 1st Fret

Intro: Follow pattern of last line in first verse*

(D) There’s an old fashioned (D7) cottage a-(G)-way out in the (Em) west
Those (A) golden memories (A7) linger for the one I love the (D) best (they sure do)
Now she’s singing with the (D7) angels and en-(G)-joying peaceful (Em) rest
Memories (A) of my grey haired (A7) mother in the (D) west

In visions I still (D7) see her in that (G) old time rocking (Em) chair
While (A) time has gently (A7) whitened up her locks of her golden (D) hair
She would sit beside the (D7) window while the (G) sun went thru her (Em) dress
Watching (A) for her cowboy (A7) riding from the (D) west

When at last the shades of (D7) twilight that were (G) falling into (Em) night
Cross the (A) valley on the (A7) hillside I could spy a FLICKERING (D) light
She would often HANG the (D7) lamplight, it would (G) guide me to my (Em) rest
**To my (A) little grey haired (A7) mother in the (D) west

Hum to pattern of line just fimished**

(Ah boy)

(D) One day I left her (D7) cottage and my (G) little mother (Em) dear
To (A) ride the lonely (A7) ranges, it was there I roamed for (D) years
Round the campfire in the (D7) evenin’ singin’ (G) songs we said it (Em) best
Of our (A) little grey haired (A7) mothers in the (D) west

One day I get a (D7) letter from my (G) darling mother (Em) dear
And it (A) read come home and (A7) see me, my time is drawing (D) near
That night a-gazing cross the (D7) valley there a FLICKERING light did (Em) shine
From a (A) cottage window (A7) ‘neath the lonely (D) pine 

Now she’s gone to join the (D7) angels where her (G) troubles all are (Em) ore
And I (A) know that she’ll be (A7) happy on the bright and golden (D) shore
When the roll is called up (D7) yonder, may I (G) meet that final (Em) test
Meet my (A) little grey haired (A7) mother way out (D) west
