Key D
68 BPM

Chorus
Under her wing, she could keep me in a safe place
Sometimes she'd sing a song from way back in the old days
A place of refuge, safe from everything
She cured all ills and I knew I was OK there
A squeeze of her hand reassured me I could stay there
With all the comfort in her world that that could bring
When Momma tucked me under her wing

Verse 1
My parents used to tell me in life be strong
But they were always there whenever things went wrong
In the long dark hours, in the dead of the night
When the bad dreams just wouldn't leave my head
Her arms around me, lying on her bed
Then I'd hear her say, don't you worry babe, we can put things right

Chorus
Under her wing, she could keep me in a safe place
Sometimes she'd sing a song from way back in the old days
A place of refuge, safe from everything
She cured all ills and I knew I was OK there
A squeeze of her hand reassured me I could stay there
With all the comfort in her world that that could bring
When Momma tucked me under her wing

Bridge
A place of warmth and love, where I could take shelter
Whenever I was feeling small
She'd whisper soothing words and I just used to melt there
She gave it all, she gave it all

Chorus
Under her wing, she could keep me in a safe place
Sometimes she'd sing a song from way back in the old days
A place of refuge, Safe from everything
She cured all ills, I knew I was OK there
A squeeze of her hand reassured me I could stay there
With all the comfort in her world that that could bring
When Mama tucked me under her wing

Verse
It's a while since then and my folks have gone
Momma's love just carries on
Inspiring all our lives
But our children still have their doubts and fears
And at time need help to dry those tears
Then I hear my wife say, don't you worry babe, it'll be alright
And I remember.......
Chorus
Under her wing, she could keep me in a safe place
Sometimes she'd sing a song from way back in the old days
A place of refuge, safe from everything
She cured all ills, I knew I was OK there
A squeeze of her hand reassured me I could stay there
With all the comfort in her world that that could bring
When Mama tucked me under her wing

Oh the love she'd bring

When Momma tucked me under her wing
