Recorded in Ireland by Anne Breen, Guitar chords by Marc Fahrbach, requested by Alan Conway, The song is about a son or daughter giving thanks to the mother who brought them into this world and cared and nurtured them ever since.

What a (Am)friend, what a (D)pal,
Only (Bm)now I can (Em)see,
How you (C)dreamed and you (D)planned all for (Am)me -(G)
(G)I never (Am)knew, what a (Bm)mother goes through
There's (Em)nothing that (A7)you didn't (D)do

Chorus
(G)Pal of my (Bm)cradle (Am)da-(D7)ys,
I've needed (D)you al(G)ways
Since (Bm)I  was a ba(Em)by u(D)pon your (D7)knee
(D)You sacrificed every(G)thing for me
(G)I stole the (Bm)gold from your (Am)hair(D7)
I put the (D)silver threads (Em)there
I don't (Am)know any (D)way I could (G)ever re(E7)pay
(Am)Pal of my (D)cradle (G)days

Greatest (Am)friend, dearest (D)pal
It was (Bm)me who caused (Em)you
Every (C)sorrow and (D)heartache you (Am)knew –(G)
(G)Your face so (Am)fair, I have (Bm)wrinkled with care
I (Em)placed every (A7)line that is (D)there.

Repeat Chorus
