[Intro]
C G C G C G D


[Verse 1]
C               G
He was just eighteen
          C         G
Full of fire and gasoline
C               G
He was lean and mean
                    D
And they called him Texas


[Verse 2]
C               G
He went off to war
      C              G
To a far and distant shore
            C             G
He'd never left his home before
             D
He was from Texas


[Pre-chorus]
           Am                               D
As they stormed that beach one foggy summer day
          Am                                     D
He said if I don't make it back promise me one thing


[Chorus]
        C           G
Take me home if I die
          D             Em
When I'm gone don't ya cry
           C          G                  D
Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
           C             G
Sing those old songs of faith
         Am            Em
I'll fly away amazing grace
             C                G                 D
But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
             C                  D                  G
And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas


[Verse 3]
     C                G
Well she was just eighteen
           C               G
Prettiest thing he'd ever seen
        C                 G
Like a real life beauty queen
                          D
And someday she'd be his wife


[Verse 4]
     C                 G
But for the next four years
C                    G
She fought back her tears
      C                   G
While he fought back his fears
              D
Fighting for his life
  

[Pre-chorus]   
     Am
And in his darkest hours
      D
Her love would bring him a light
Am
He would read her letters
           D
He would pray at night


[Chorus]
        C           G
Take me home if I die
          D             Em
When I'm gone don't ya cry
           C          G                  D
Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
           C             G
Sing those old songs of faith
         Am            Em
I'll fly away amazing grace
             C                G                 D
But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
             C                  D                  G
And you can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas


[Bridge]
          Am               Em
He always said the real heroes
G                   D
Never made it back home
               Am            Em
And though the war was long over
              G                  D
You know for him it still lived on
                      D
And it still lives on


[Verse 5]
     C              G
When he was eighty-three
              C            G
Still full of fire and gasoline
   C                   G
He was still lean and mean
                          D
And they still called him Texas


[Verse 6]
    C              G
And on the day he died
        C                   G
She was right there by his side
      C                  G                D
She held his hand as she softly sang his lullaby


[Chorus]
        C           G
Take me home if I die
          D             Em
When I'm gone don't ya cry
           C          G                  D
Find some shade right beside a live oak tree
           C             G
Sing those old songs of faith
         Am            Em
I'll fly away amazing grace
             C                G                 D
But you find comfort knowing that my soul found peace
            C        D
And you can bury me
        C        D
You can bury me
        C                   D                   G 
You can bury me beneath the deep blue skies of Texas
