[VERSE]

         C 
It was kinda hard believing
        F 
Mama Stewart couldn't see me then
    C G 
Or even that her age was ninety-four
              C  
'Cause the years that took her sight away
      F 
Had given her the right to say
       D7 G 
What she believed, and she did, praise the Lord

           C 
And the things she said reminded me
      F 
Of things I'd grown too blind to see
      C F 
And feelings that I'd hidden deep inside
                                                 C 
And when she said goodbye and kissed me I was thankful 
                              G C 
She couldn't see the sudden tears I couldn't hide


[CHORUS]

 F C 
Everything is beautiful in Mama Stewart's eyes
 G C 
Another shining reason to believe
 F C 
Everything is new and full of wonder and surprise
    G C 
Inside the world that Mama Stewart sees

[VERSE] 

      C 
She rode the covered wagons west
       F 
When she was only seven
          C G 
But she came to California on a plane
              C 
She said at ninety-four she thought for sure
        F 
She'd got too close to heaven
      D7 G 
And like as not was going all the way

          C 
But the miracle of medicine
      F 
And good old time religion
    C F 
Removed the veil of darkness from her eyes
                                                C 
They say she praised the Lord and thanked the doctor
                  G C 
And didn't even seem at all surprised


[CHORUS] 

 F C 
Everything is beautiful in Mama Stewart's eyes
 G C 
Another shining reason to believe
     F C 
And everything is new and full of wonder and surprise
    G C 
Inside the world that Mama Stewart sees
        G C 
Lord, let me see what Mama Stewart sees
