Aaron Watson – Texas Lullaby Chords

No Capo

G
He was just eighteen
D
Full of fire and gasoline
Em
He was lean and mean
C
And they called him Texas

G
He went off to war
D
To a far and distant shore
Em
He'd never left his home before
C
He was from Texas

G                    D
As they stormed that beach one foggy summer day
Em                 C
He said if I don't make it back promise me one thing

G
Take me home if I die
D
When I'm gone don't ya cry
Em
Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
C
Sing those old songs of faith
G
I'll fly away amazing grace
D
But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
Em                  C
And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas
G Well she was just eighteen D Prettiest thing he'd ever seen Em Like a real life beauty queen C And someday she'd be his wife G But for the next four years D She fought back her tears Em While he fought back his fears C Fighting for his life
G And in his darkest hours D Her love would bring him a light Em He would read her letters C He would pray at night G Take me home if I die D When I'm gone don't ya cry Em Find some shade right beside a live oak tree C Sing those old songs of faith G I'll fly away amazing grace D But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace Em C And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas G He always said the real heroes D Never made it back home Em And though the war was long over C You know for him it still lived on And it still lives on G When he was eighty-three D Still full of fire and gasoline Em He was still lean and mean C And they still called him Texas G And on the day he died D She was right there by his side Em C She held his hand as she softly sang his lullaby G Take me home if I die D When I'm gone don't ya cry Em Find some shade right beside a live oak tree C Sing those old songs of faith G I'll fly away amazing grace D But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace Em And you can bury me C You can bury me You can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas
