26 CENTS    The Wilkinsons

B                       F#          G#m
She sat all alone on a bus out of Beaumont
E                              B
The courage of just eighteen years
B                       F#         G#m
A penny and a quarter taped to a letter
E                        B   notes F# E D#
Momma's goodbye in her ears
B                                F#    G#m
She watched as her high school faded behind her
      E                                B 
Then the house with the white picket fence
B                                F#        G#m
Then she read the note that her momma had wrote
E                    F#
Wrapped up with 26 cents

CHORUS:
                B             G#m
When you get lonely call me anytime at all
                B               G#m
I'll be there with you always anywhere at all
          E                     F#
There's nothing I got that I wouldn't give
    C#m              F#
And money is never enough
           E                         G#m
Here's a penny for your thoughts, a quarter for the call
    C#m        F#     B
And all your momma's love


B                              F#           G#m
A penny and a quarter buys a whole lot of nothing
E                         B
Taped to an old wrinkled note
B                                  F#          G#m
When she didn't have much she had all momma's love
E                      F#
Inside that old envel-ope.

go to chorus, lead,
G#m                        F#           E
Oh, it's been years since momma's been gone
              G#m               F#             E  F#  G#m
But when she holds a coin she feels her love just as strong

go to chorus
