Slaid Cleaves - God's Own Yodeler


## NOTE: ~ ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: Am   G   C


Up at Henry's Bar and Grill
       F
On the north side of town
        G
I saw a man reach up to heaven
                   C
And pull a song on down



To a smoke filled room of misfits
          F
Young and old and great and small
             G
And with the laughing eyes of the Buddha
                     C    ~ ~
He shared it with us all


CHORUS:
          Am
And every soul in that roadhouse
         F
Felt the power of his song
        D
Through life's joys and sorrows
   G
He brought us together as one
     Am
They called him 'God's own yodeler'
         F
'The Pavarotti of the plains'
           G
There's no bigger voice in Texas
                   C
Don Walser was his name



He was raised out in La Mesa
       F
Just a boy when his mamma died
     G
With daddy at the mill all night
                       C
In that empty house he cried



He'd climb up in the oak tree
   F
To sing his broken heart
    G
The neighbours gathered in the yard
                 C    ~ ~
Listening in the dark


CHORUS:
        Am
Singing songs about West Texas
F
Cowboys and old John Deeres
D
Rodeos and drive-ins
        G
And the thrill of teenage years
     Am
They called him 'God's own yodeler'
         F
'The Pavarotti of the plains'
           G
There's no bigger voice in Texas
                   C
Don Walser was his name


INTERLUDE:
    Am     C
Yodelayeeoooooo
    G      C
Yodelayeeoooooo


INSTRUMENTAL: C  F  G   C ~ ~ Am  F  D  G  Am  F  G   C



From the honky-tonks and dance halls
       F
To the Grand Ole Opery
    G
Don Walser brought a smile
                         C
To every fan who came to see



Now it's oxygen and wheelchairs
    F
And trips to the docs in town
    G
The stays kept getting longer
                     C     ~ ~
He knew he was glory bound


CHORUS:
   Am
My friend, your work is done here
        F
And I'd say you did it well
     D
Your voice rings down from heaven
        G
All the way to the Devil himself
    Am
And now you're god's own yodeler
      F
High above the Texas plains
   G
We miss you here in Austin
                       C
With love we speak you name


OUTRO:
    Am     C
Yodelayeeoooooo
    F      C
Yodelayeeoooooo
    Am     C
Yodelayeeoooooo
    G      C  F  C       C
Yodelayeeooooooooooo yip
