Intro

C                          F
Everyday I drive to work across Flint River bridge
   C                                F
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpaw fished.
           G                                  F
There's a piece of his ol' fruit stand on the side of Sawmill Road
     G                                 F
He'd be there peelin' peaches if it was 20 years ago
Em                  F
And what I wouldn't give 
   Em                                 F  G
To ride around in that old truck with him


Chorus
    C
If Heaven wasn't so far away
    F
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
G
Introduce them to their grandpaw
F
Watch them laugh at the way he talked
C
Find my long lost cousin John
    F
The one we left back in Vietnam
G
Show him a picture of his daughter now
F
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Am                G                  F
Tell 'em we'd be back in a couple of days
       Am                 G                 F
In the rear view mirror, we'd all watch 'em wave
      Am                   G         F
Yeah, losin' them wouldn't be so hard to take
    F                G       C  F
If Heaven wasn't so far away.


    C                                                F
I'd hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of '99
         C          
And I'd find my bird dog Bo, 
              F
And take him huntin' one more time
G                                 F
Ask Hank why he took those pills back in '53
    G                                 F
And Janice to sing the second verse of 'Me and Bobbie McGee'
   Em                           F
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
     Em                           F   G
It'd do me good just to see them smile.


Chorus
    C 
If Heaven wasn't so far away
     F
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
G
Introduce them to their grandpaw
F
Watch them laugh at the way he talked
C
Find my long lost cousin John
     F
The one we left back in Vietnam
G
Show him a picture of his daughter now
F
She's a doctor and he'd be proud
Am                G                  F
Tell 'em we'd be back in a couple of days
       Am                 G                 F
In the rear view mirror, we'd all watch 'em wave
       Am                  G         F
Yeah, losin' them wouldn't be so hard to take
    F                G
If Heaven wasn't so far 
    Am           G
If Heaven wasn't so far 
    F               G       
If Heaven wasn't so far away.
C  F
     So far away
C  F          C      F      C
     So far awaaaaaaaaaaay
