G                  Am   
Had an uncle named Matthew
D7                   G  
Was his father's only boy
G                         Am
Born just south of Colby, Kansas
D7                        G
Was his mother's pride and joy

G                         C                 Am
Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
D7                                G 
Love was just the way to live and die
G               C            Am
Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield
D7                            G
Blue was just a Kansas summer sky

G                       Am
All the stories that he told me
D7                     G
Back when I was just a lad
G                        Am
All the memories that he gave me
D7                         G
All the good times that he had

G                  Am
Growin up a Kansas farmboy
D7                    G
Life was mostly havin fun
G                     Am
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders
D7                        G
Behind a mule beneath the sun

G                         C                 Am
Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
D7                                G
Love was just the way to live and die
G               C            Am
Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield
D7                            G
Blue was just a Kansas summer sky

G                             Am
Well, I guess there were some hard times
D7                           G
And I'm told some years were lean
G                   Am
They had a storm in '47
D7                               G
A twister came and stripped them clean

G                             Am
He lost the farm and lost his family
D7                             G
He lost the wheat and lost his home
G                     Am
But he found a family bible
D7                  G
Faith as solid as a stone

G                         C                 Am
Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
D7                                G
Love was just the way to live and die
G               C            Am
Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield
D7                            G
Blue was just a Kansas summer sky

G                         Am
So he came to live at our house
D7                      G
And he came to work the land
G                          Am
He came to ease my daddy's burden
D7                   G
And he came to be my friend

G                         Am 
So, I wrote this down for Matthew
D7                           G
And it's for him the song is sung
G                     Am  
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders
D7                        G
Behind a mule beneath the sun

G                         C                 Am
Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
D7                                G
Love was just the way to live and die
G               C            Am
Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield
D7                            G  
Blue was just a Kansas summer sky

G                         C                 Am
Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
D7                                G
Love was just the way to live and die
G               C            Am
Gold was just a windy Kansas wheatfield
D7                            G
Blue was just a Kansas summer sky
