While plenty of embellishment or transposition is possible, here is the basic chord progression.

C                                                 F                            C       
Tell me how did you feel when the angel came into the garden?
C                         F                 C - G
How did you feel? How did you feel?
C                                 F                       C
When he said "if you're afraid I beg your pardon,
C                          F                  C – G
but you're the one to bear god's son."

Ref.:
C
Tell me how did you feel (how did you feel)
G
how did you feel (how did you feel)
C                 F          C
Oh Momma, Momma Mary,
C                       F                 C – G
we wish you joy, we wish you joy.
C                 F          C
Oh Momma, Momma Mary,
C                    F             C - G
your little boy, your little boy
C          F   C    G   C
Soon to be our saviour.

C                                  F                C       
Tell me how did you feel on the final day
C                         F                 C - G
How did you feel? How did you feel?
C                            F                    C
When you arrived in Bethlehem to hear them say
C                         F                 C - G
"No food no table, save in the stable"

(Ref.)
C                                   F                                             C     
Tell me how did you feel when the wise men came to see him?
C                     F              C - G
How did it feel? How did it feel?
C                                             F                                C   
When shepherds and kings with precious things adored him
C                  F                 C - G
it had begun, here was the one.

As someone else mentioned earlier, this song was covered by Roger Whitaker on a Christmas album. I own it on CD (got it as a gifty) so it's probably still around.
The chords written will certainly work on guitar or piano. Just listen to the song so you know exactly when to play each chord and how to sing the pickups to each phrase.

Momma Mary....Would someone be able to get me the sheet music for Momma Mary by Roger Whittaker.  I need it soon as my grandaughter  wants to sing this at a church assembly. She is 9 years old and can't sing it without the sheet music.

I've searched everywhere for the sheet music for Momma Mary.  Can you help me find it?  Is it available for SATB?  Is there an orchestration of it?  I would be happy with anything you can tell me!  gerigibbs@gmail.com
