Fm9            C  
Well God bless Texas
      Fm9          C
And Deacon Shackleford
              Fm9         C
He read the bible seven times
         Fm9            C
And he believed every word
           Fm9             C       Fm9             C
That ol' beat up leather book had been through it all
       Fm9          C               Fm9         C
He sat on the back pew so he could chew him a chaw
Singin'
   Fm9     C
"Amazing Grace
 Fm9            C
How sweet the sound"
Fm9            G         Fm9
That saved a wrech like me
            Fm9           C          Fm9           C
He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
              Fm9            C
He'd take me fishin' after church
               Fm9                 C
And taught me things I needed to know
            Fm9             C
No, Deacon didn't have a family
       Fm9               C
Lord knows he wished he did
            Fm9        C               G          C
He told the whole congregation that I was his grandkid

Chorus:
               Dm             C
And today he joined up with Jesus
          G           C
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
           Dm          C
We sang a few gospel hymns
                G             G
And then the soldier played taps
             Dm          C               G                A
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down the street paved with gold
         Dm              C          G (let ring out)
Showin' off his brand spanking new wings
                     C
And his barbed wire halo

Continues with the same rhythm as the first verse.

He married sweet Emma Grace before the war was through
She held his right arm next to his anchor tatoo
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth
He lost his whole world from the far side of the earth
He lost the will to love
He lost the will to live
Until he met a man who taught him to forgive
Yeah life took him to hell and back
To hell and back a time or two
But in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue
Singin'
"I once was lost
But now I'm found
Was blind
But now I see"

(Chorus)
          Fm9                C               Fm9       C
Before he went he made me promise him that I wouldn't cry
              Fm9               C                  Fm9              C
And though I told him that I wouldn't you know I couldn't help but lie
                 Dm             C
Cause today he joined up with Jesus
          G           C
Wearing shiny pearl snaps
            Dm         C
We sang a few gospel hymns
                G            G 
And then the soldier played taps
              Dm          C              G                A
I bet he's walking with Pete down the street paved with gold
    Dm          C                      G 
As sure as the old church bell still rings
            Dm           C            G 
He always said he had country in his soul
              Dm             C            G (let ring out)
He's showing off his brand spanking new wings
                     C
And his barbed wire halo
Fm9     C Fm9    C              Fm9      G
Sweet chariots coming forth to carry me home
Fm9    C   Fm9       C     Fm9             C        G     Fm9
Swing low sweet chariots coming forth to carry me home
