"He Walked on Water"
Words/Music by Allen Shamblin
Performed by Randy Travis
D G/D
1. He wore starched white shirts buttoned at the neck,
D A/E
and he'd sit in the shade and watch the chickens peck.
D G/D
And his teeth were gone, but what the heck,
D A D G A
I thought that he walked on water.
D G
2. He said he was a cowboy when he was young.
D A
He could handle a rope and he was good with a gun.
D G
And my mama's daddy was his oldest son,--
D A D
and I thought that he walked on water.
CHORUS
G D
If the story's told, only heaven knows.
A D
But his hat seemed to me like an old halo.
D7 G
And although his wings, they were never seen.
A D G/A A/C#
I thought that he walked on water.
D G
3. Then he tied a cord to the end of a mop,
D A
and said, "Son, here's a pony, keep her at a trot."
D G
And I'd ride in circles while he laughed alot.
D A D
Then I'd flop down beside him.
Bm A
And he was ninety years old in sixty-three
G A
and I loved him and he loved me.
G A
And lord, I cried the day he died,
D A D
'cause I thought that he walked on water.
CHORUS
