G                       Am       D                         G
I had an uncle name of Matthew...he was his father's only boy
                          Am       D                              G
Born just south of Colby, Kansas...he was his mother's pride and joy
                           G                 C           Am
   CHORUS:  Yes, and joy was just the thing he was raised on
         D                              G C G
   Love was just a way to live and die
                         C             Am
   Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field
          D              C             G
   Blue was just a Kansas summer sky
                             Am    D                        G
And all the stories that he told me back when I was just a lad
                          Am       D                           G
All the memories that he gave me...all the good times that he had
                     Am       D                       G
Growin' up a Kansas farmboy...life was mostly havin' fun
                        Am      D                           G
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun
                               Am        D                             G
Well, I guess there were some hard times and I'm told some years were lean
                     Am   D                               G
They had a storm in '47...twister came and stripped 'em clean
                               Am                    D                 G
He lost the farm and lost his family...he lost the wheat, he lost his home
                         Am   D                         G
But he found the family bible and faith as solid as a stone
                       Am         D                        G
So he came to live at our house...and he came to work the land
                            Am     D                      G
He came to ease my daddy's burdens and he came to be my friend
                           Am      D                          G
So I wrote this down for Matthew...it's for him this song is sung
                        Am      D                           G
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun

during verses, chords are not played, it is finger picked with individual notes, but chords are at accurate timing in relation to song
