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

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


                    C                   G
If the story's told,  only heaven knows.
                      D                G
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo.
G7                       C
  And although his wings,  they were never seen.
               D            G      C/D  D/F#
I thought that he walked on water.

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

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

'cause I thought that he walked on water.
