[Verse 1]
Cadd9            G  
Well God bless Texas
      Cadd9          G
And Deacon Shackleford
              Cadd9         G
He read the bible seven times
         Cadd9            G
And he believed every word
           Cadd9             G       Cadd9             G
That ol' beat up leather book had been through it all
       Cadd9          G               Cadd9         G
He sat on the back pew so he could chew him a chaw 
Singin'
   Cadd9     G
"Amazing Grace
 Cadd9            G
How sweet the sound"
Cadd9            D         G
That saved a wrech like me
            Cadd9           G          Cadd9           G
He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
              Cadd9            G
He'd take me fishin' after church
               Cadd9                 G
And taught me things I needed to know
            Cadd9             G
No, Deacon didn't have a family
       Cadd9               G
Lord knows he wished he did
            Cadd9        G               D          G
He told the whole congregation that I was his grandkid

[Chorus]
               Am             G
And today he joined up with Jesus
          D           G
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
           Am          G
We sang a few gospel hymns
                D             D
And then the soldier played taps
             Am          G               D                Em
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down the street paved with gold
         Am              G          D (let ring out)
Showin' off his brand spanking new wings
                     G
And his barbed wire halo

[Verse]
    Cadd9             G      Cadd9                 G
He married sweet Emma Grace before the war was through
   Cadd9            G             Cadd9      G
She held his right arm next to his anchor tatoo
            Cadd9        G            Cadd9         G
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth
    Cadd9           G             Cadd9            G
He lost his whole world from the far side of the earth
    Cadd9            G
He lost the will to love
   Cadd9              G
He lost the will to live
 Cadd9          G             Cadd9      G
Until he met a man who taught him to forgive
           Cadd9                G
Yeah life took him to hell and back
             Cadd9          G
To hell and back a time or two
           Cadd9           G           D                G
But in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue
Singin'
Cadd9        G
"I once was lost
    Cadd9      G
But now I'm found
Cadd9        D       G
Was blind but now I see"

[Chorus]
          Cadd9                G               Cadd9       G
Before he went he made me promise him that I wouldn't cry
              Cadd9               G               D              G
And though I told him that I wouldn't you know I couldn't help but lie
                 Am             G
Cause today he joined up with Jesus
          D           G
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
            Am         G
We sang a few gospel hymns
                D            D 
And then the soldier played taps
              Am          G              D                Em
I bet he's walking with Pete down the street paved with gold
    Am          G                      D 
As sure as the old church bell still rings
            Am           G            D 
He always said he had country in his soul
              Am             G            D (let ring out)
He's showing off his brand spanking new wings
                     G
And his barbed wire halo
Cadd9     G Cadd9    G              Cadd9      D
Sweet chariots coming forth to carry me home
Cadd9    G   Cadd9       G     Cadd9             G        D     Cadd9
Swing low sweet chariots coming forth to carry me home
