         IF MOMMA AIN'T HAPPY   Tracy Byrd

              G     A        A7    D
Every since Monday I've seen it coming
            G            A        A7    D
When I say what's wrong She just says nothing
       G
But I ain't about to let it go
A                       A7
Cause I loved her long enough to know

CHORUS:
D
When momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy
D                            A 
So daddy's gonna make momma happy tonight
A
I've got a limo waiting and dinner reservations
A                          D
A corner table with some candle light
D
We gonna spend some money I'm gonna call her honey
D                        G
I wanna see the sparkle back in her eyes
       D                        A
When momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy
     A                  A7            D
So daddy's gonna make momma happy to-night



D                G         A        A7   D 
I see in those green eyes her red head temper
D                  G   A      A7   D 
And she can make July as cold as December
          G
Well, I love her every way she is
      A                           A7
But brother, I've discovered in times like these

Go to chorus, feels like a key change but isn't, just vamp on E

D
When momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy
D                       A    
So daddy's gonna make momma happy tonight
A            
I  told the baby sitter, fix macaroni dinner
A                            D
And try to have the kids in bed by nine
D
We gonna spend some money I'm gonna call her honey
D                 G 
I wanna see the sparkle back in her eyes
      D                         A
When momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy
    A                  A7             D
So daddy's gonna make momma happy to-night
D                         A
When momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy
    A                  A7             D
So daddy's gonna make momma happy to-night
