   Bb            C                  F                 Dm

1.     I have loved me a man like my momma did,

Bb           C                   F

    I have loved me a man.

Bb              C                 F                   Dm

    Tall and tender, his hands like my daddy's were,

G                                       C

    and a mind that understands.

 

Bb              C                               F             Dm

    And the arms that held me when I was crying,

Bb                    C                         A7

    the lips that kissed away the tears.

Bb                       C               F                 Dm

    But they're a part of the man that my momma loved,

Bb                   C                 F

    and I have loved me a man.

 

   Bb              C               F                  Dm

2.     I have wed me a man, like my momma did,

Bb             C              F

    I have wed me a man.

Bb                 C          F                    Dm

    I can still feel the warmth of the words he said,

G                                              C

    he had my heart tied in his hands.

 

Bb                    C                       F               Dm

    And in the morning I would wake by his side,

Bb                        C                        A

    and wonder what I could have done

Bb         C                  F                 Dm

    to be loved by a man like my momma loved,

Bb                  C                   F      - G

    and I have loved me a man.

 

    C                D                G                  Em

3.     I would bear him a child, like my momma did,

C                 D               G

    I would bear him a child.

 

 

 

 

 

 

C                   D                  G                 Em

    She'd be gentle and sweet, like my momma was,

A                                                 D

    I'd watch her grow and in a while ...

 

C                            D                             G                 Em

    She'd ask me, Momma, what should I want from life ?

C                      D                      B7

    and I would tell her with a smile :

C               D                 G                  Em   

    Just be loved by a man like your momma loved,

C                    D                  G

    and I have loved me a man,

Am                 D                  G

    and I have loved me a man.
