                     "He Walked on Water"

Words/Music by Allen Shamblin
Performed by Randy Travis


[Verse]
              D                  G/D
1. He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck,
         D                              A/E
and he'd sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck.
          D                  G/D
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck,
D              A            D      G  A
I thought that he walked on water.


      D                    G
2. He said he was a cowboy when he was young.
          D                        A
He could handle a rope and he was good with a gun.
    D                         G
And my mama's daddy was his oldest son,--
    D              A            D
and I thought that he walked on water.


[Chorus]

                    G                   D
If the story's told,  only heaven knows.
                      A                D
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo.
D7                       G
  And although his wings,  they were never seen.
               A            D      G/A  A/C#
I thought that he walked on water.


[Verse]
        D                     G
3. Then he tied a cord to the end of a mop,
           D                    A
and said, "Son, here's a pony, keep her at a trot."
    D                                   G
And I'd ride in circles while he laughed  alot.
     D          A     D
Then I'd flop down beside him.

           Bm                  A
And he was ninety years old in sixty-three
    G               A
and I loved him and he loved me.
     G                   A
And lord, I cried the day  he died,
       D              A            D

'cause I thought that he walked on water.


[Chorus]

just a suggestion, on the "I thought he walked on water" part it sounds better if you make the "A" something more like 002020. it sounds better to me for that section :)

The cord arrangement is great. However, I have found playing the basic cords of D, G, and A suffices by tuning your voice. I played this song the other night at a pub and the crowd love it. It's a keeper!!!
