[Verse]
Am
Well I grew up around Bethany
          F
'cause my folks were raised in Bethany,
       Am
on the East edge of the country 
        F                  Am F G
and the West edge of OKC.
   Am
My grandparents bought an estate there
    F
in 1938 there.
  Am
A thousand nights I stayed there,
      F                                Am F G
and a million meals I ate there, yep.
   Am
My first love was Kathy, 
      F 
and I took her out to Bethany
   Am
so she could meet the family,
    F                                     Am F G  A F G
and then I said "She ain't for me", no...
          Am
And since Jesus went through a Bethany
F
on his way from a Galilee,
  Am 
I had me an epiphany
   F
to write a song about... it

[Chorus]
C               G             F                E             Am F G
When I die, just lay me down beneath the ground of that town,
          C         G       C        
and we'll call it a Bethany Breakdown 

[instumental solo]
E  G G# A  E  C Em Am  
 
[Verse]
Am
Holiday memories take me back
      F
to my sister Paula and Uncle Jack,
   Am
and Mark and Joey and Collin too,
    F                            Am F G 
and Mom and Dad, and all of you.

Am
Hung out there every Sunday
        F
with my cousins Mike, Jake and Clay.
Am
We'd wrestle with the kids and play
    F                                   Am F G 
and talk about the Girl of the Day, yep!
Am
And finally, there came a date
        F
when we boys took over that real estate.
Am
The poker was fun, the girls were great
F  N.C.                        Am F G
not the path to Heaven's gate, no 

[Break]
Am F G  G   G7
    Am
But nowadays, that house is gone,
    F
the old folks have done moved on.
    Am
But we still have this little song,
    F
so crank it up and get it on!

[Chorus]
C               G             F                E             Am F G
When I die, just lay me down beneath the ground of that town,
          C         G       C        
and we'll call it a Bethany Breakdown           

[Ending] 
E  G G# A A
