Intro: G Cadd9 G Cadd9

    G                          Cadd9
It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails
          G
It ain't worth a lot of money
       Cadd9
And it damn sure ain't for sale
     G                             Cadd9
The good lord only knows all the stories it could tell
                    G
My Granddaddy's gun

     G                                 Cadd9
He bought it new out of the Sears and Robuck catalog
         G                         Cadd9
And it shot a many shells over the back of an old bird dog
         G                                Cadd9
And it backed a burglar down when grandma took the safety off

Granddaddy's gun.

G Cadd9 G Cadd9

      D
It's just an old double barrel twelve
      G                      Cadd9
The stock is cracked and it kick's like hell
      D                               G
It wouldn't mean what mean's to me to no one
              D
Cause I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder
   G                          Cadd9
A guns like a woman son it's all how you hold her
      D                            G
He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
     D                                         G
And one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson
       Cadd9
My Granddaddy's Gun

That old man gave it to me on the day I turned thirteen
With a half shot box of shells and a kit to keep it clean
I keep a picture in the case of that sweet old man and me
And Granddaddy's gun

It's just an old double barrel twelve
The stock was cracked and it kick's like hell
It wouldn't mean what mean's to me to no one
Cause I can still hear his voice when I put it to my shoulder
A guns like a woman son it's all how you hold her
He taught me a whole lot more than how to hunt
And one of these days I'll pass it on to my grandson
My Granddaddy's Gun

            D
There's a long beard hanging on the livin' room wall
G
That I got with a box call and Granddaddy's gun
           D
There's a beat up sign out there on forty nine
      G
That me and Billy Joe shot up one night
        Cadd9
With granddaddy's gun 

    G                         Cadd9
It sets above the mantel on a couple rusty nails
           G                         Cadd9
It ain't worth a lot of money but it damn sure ain't for sale

Close but needs to be tuned flat.

Yeah, I just watched a video of him playing it. I got the chords right, but the timing of the chord changes are a bit off. Thanks for commenting :)
