Verse:
Ev -'ry thing seems love -ly, When you start to roam.
The birds are sing -ing the day that you stray, But wait un -til you are furth -er a -way.
Things won't be so love -ly, When you're all a -lone.
Here's what you'll keep say -ing, When you're far from home.
 
Chorus:
Mam -my, Mam -my,
The sun shines East the sun shines West, but I've just learned where the sun shines best.
Mam -my, Mam -my,
My heart strings are tan -gled a -round Al -a -bam -y.
I'se a -com -in', sor -ry that I made you wait.
I'se a -com -in', hope and pray I'm not too late.
Mam -my, Mam -my,
I'd walk a mil -lion miles for one of your smiles, my Mam -my.
