Keep on Singing (Chords) – Helen Reddy

I’ve grown up hear my mom sing this song at parties and family gatherings. Thought I should add in the chords here cause to me this is a classic. These are the chords mom plays on the guitar. Just watched her and tabbed them down 🙂

Keep On Singing – Helen Reddy

Level : Easy (Beginner)

C I don't remember mama
Dm She died when I was born
G G7 We lived in a one room shanty
F C But daddy tried to make it a home
C When I was only six years old
Dm I started singing in the streets
G G7 People would throw me pennies
F C So I could daddy make ends meet
And they'd say

CHORUS 1:

C Keep on singing
Don't stop singing
Dm You're gonna be a star someday
G G7 You're gonna make a lot of people happy
F C When they come to hear you play
C They said keep on singin
Keep the bells all ringin
Dm Spread the music from town to town
G G7 There's not enough love in this old world
 F C So spread your song around

By the time I was 10 years old
I had a little rock n roll band
Daddy's eyes were growing dim
But I didn't understand
He would be so proud of me
Each time he'd hear me play
At night he'd pull me to his side
And daddy would always say
He'd say to

CHORUS 1

We didn't have much money
But things didn't seem so bad
I felt just like the queen of the world
When I was with my dad
Then one rainy April night
Daddy called me to his side
He held me with his tremblin hands
And just before he died
He said

CHORUS 1

CHORUS 2 : 

So I'll just
Keep on singing
I won't stop singing
I'm gonna be a star someday
I'm gonna make a lot of people happy
When they come to hear me play
I'll just keep on singin
Keep the bells all ringin
Spread the music from town to town
There's not enough love in this whole world
So I'll spread my song around

CHORUS 2

FADE
