[Verse 1]
C                             E7
Perhaps it's the color of the sun cut flat
    Am            D7/F#
And covering the crossroads I'm standing at
   C              G          Am        G6   F
Or maybe it's the weather or something like that
    C/G            G6    C
But mama, you been on my mind

[Verse 2]
C                                        E7
I don't mean trouble please don't put me down or get upset
         Am          D7/F#
I am not pleadin' or sayin' "I can't forget you"
  C               G           Am       G6        F
I do not pace the floor bowed down and bent, but yet
C/G            G6    C
Mama, you been on my mind

[Verse 3]
     C                              E7
Even though my eyes are hazy and my thoughts they might be narrow
          Am                       D7/F#
Where you been don't bother me, or bring me down with sorrow
  C          G                  Am     G6   F
I don't even mind who you'll be waking with tomorrow
C/G          G6         C
Mama, you're just on my mind

[Verse 4]
    C                     E7
I'm not asking you to say words like "yes" or "no"
            Am         D7/F#
Please understand me I have no place I'm calling you to go
         C               G                  Am        G6      F
I'm just whispering to myself so I can't pretend that I don't know
C/G           G6    C
Mama, you are on my mind

C E7   Am D7/F#   C G Am G6 F   C/G G6 C   G G

[Verse 5]
         C                           E7
When you wake up in the morning baby look inside your mirror
    Am                               D7/F#
You know I won't be next to you, you know I won't be near
            C          G               Am      G6      F
I'd just be curious to know if you can see yourself as clear
   C/G             G6             C
As someone who has had you on his mind

About the artist behind Mama You Been On My Mind Chords:

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, and a poet who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'",[1] became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the U.S. album chart at number one, and that same year was named Album of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.[2]

Dylan's early lyrics incorporated politics, social commentary, philosophy and literary influences, defying existing pop music conventions and appealing widely to the counterculture. While expanding and personalizing musical styles, he has shown steadfast devotion to many traditions of American song, from folk and country/blues to gospel, rock and roll and rockabilly, to English, Scottish and Irish folk music, and even jazz and swing.[3][4]

Dylan performs with the guitar, keyboard and harmonica. Backed by a changing lineup of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the "Never Ending Tour". Although his accomplishments as performer and recording artist have been central to his career, his songwriting is generally regarded as his greatest contribution.[5]

Over many years, Dylan has been recognized and honored for his songwriting, performing, and recording. His records have earned Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards, and he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 1999, Dylan was included in TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century, and in 2004, he was ranked number two in Rolling Stone magazine's list of "Greatest Artists of All Time", second only to The Beatles.[6] In January 1990, Dylan was made a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by French Minister of Culture Jack Lang; in 2000, he was awarded the Polar Music Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music;[7] and in 2007, Dylan was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award in Arts in Spain by the Fundación Príncipe de Asturias. He has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.[8][9][10]

In 2008, Dylan was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."[11] Previous recipients of this award include Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane.[12]
