Chords: Fmaj7 C G Am

Intro: Fmaj7 C G C x2

         Fmaj7   C      
You were born in Missouri 
     G           C
to a mother all alone
     Fmaj7         C            G
Your daddy was out on the road again

       Fmaj7                      C
And it stayed like that till the age of five, 
G                Am
when your father died
        Fmaj7            C
But you never could find anger, 
   G                 C
he was the traveling kind

    Fmaj7                    C
Sometimes she would tell you stories
        G                C
As she laid you down to sleep
 Fmaj7           C                   G
About how he had played the biggest stage

    Fmaj7                 C      
The years went by and you grew up strong
              G                           Am
But there was something you just couldn't find

    Fmaj7                     C            G
You turned eighteen, and your momma gently wept
    Fmaj7        C                  G
And told you the last words that he said

Fmaj7          C          G
Son, take your horses and run
             Fmaj7     C                Am           G
And you will know this country like the back of your hand
    Fmaj7     C                  Am    G     F              
The names may escape you but the faces never will

C                G               C 
This one life is yours and yours alone

      Fmaj7           C
Thanksgiving came and passed
             G             C
Like rain on southern afternoon
         Fmaj7           C         G
You were living like you never had before

      Fmaj7                 C
And a friend of yours you'd known in school
           G            Am
Called you up to have a drink
         Fmaj7                C                   G
He said, there's someone that I think you should meet

    Fmaj7                      C
You laughed it off and claimed circumstance
      G               C
Would keep you from a bride
    Fmaj7                    C                 G
The truth was those thoughts led your bones to shake

       Fmaj7             C
But he wouldn't accept a coward's words
        G                    Am
And the plans were made that night
Fmaj7            C               G
Six months later she became your wife
            Fmaj7      C           G  
Nine months later your little girl cried for the first time

Fmaj7          C          G  
Son, take your horses and run
             Fmaj7     C                Am           G
And you will know this country like the back of your hand
    Fmaj7     C                  Am    G     Fmaj7   
The names may escape you but the faces never will

C                G               C
This one life is yours and yours alone

      Fmaj7      C            G               C
And I loved your mother, your sister and your brother
     Fmaj7     C                 G
They made me a man that could be loved
           Fmaj7          C
And it was Jesus there to save me
         Am          G   Fmaj7
From the life that I got wrong

    C             G            C 
And I'm so glad I never walked alone

                                                     (Strum it once and let it ring. The rest is sung acapella)
    Fmaj7                                             
One day you realized you were the same age as me  
When I passed away
You called mother and told her she was loved

And that night after you read Brown Bear
And sang your child to sleep
You thanked the good Lord for family
That we aren't together but one day we would be
