This Old Grey Coat  Trace Adkins

Well they [G]gave me this old coat
Said it will [C]keep you might [G]warm
It will [C]see you through the [G]winter
It's your [A]by God uni[D]form
So I [G]wear it everyday
And I [C]sleep in it at [G]night
Now it's [C]twenty shade of [G]grey
And the [A]waist has shrunk too [D]tight
And the [B]bottoms caked and [Em]muddy
And the [B]buttons are half [Em]gone
But [A]just [B]like you and [C]me
This [C#m]Old Grey Coat wears on.[D]

Chorus:
And when I [G]die in this grey [B]coat
I'm gonna [Em]march though Heaven's [A]door
I'm gonna walk up to Saint [B]Peter
And tell him, [C]send me back for [D]more
Cause I'll be [G]damn if I'll just [B]sit around
Why [Em]you boys win the [A]war
Cause even, [G]when [B]I'm [Em]dead
Shot full of, [G]Yank[B]ee's [Em]lead
A B C C#m D (Stop)
And every part of me keeps hangin' by a thread
Of This Old Grey [G]Coat.[C]  [G]  [C]

When I [G]think of all the places
This old [C]coat and me have [G]been
Through the [C]fat and lean and [G]in between
In the [A]weak through thick and [D]thin
From the [G]ballrooms down in Richmond
To the [C]top of Mary's [G]Height
From [C]Manasas to The [G]Wilderness
And a [A]hundred other [D]fights
Now the [B]collars torn and [Em]tattered
And the [B]elbow's wore clean [Em]through
But [A]put me [B]in a [C]pinch
This [C#m]Old Grey [D]Coat will do.

And when I [G]die in this grey [B]coat
And when they [Em]come to bury [A]me
They commenced a speak of [B]fightin'
And [C]singin', Mirror Lord [D]Thieves
Well be damn [G]sure I ain't just [B]sleepin'
Cause I [Em]flat out guaran[A]tee
That even, [G]when [B]I'm [Em]dead
Shot full of, [G]Yank[B]ee's [Em]lead
A B C C#m D (Stop)
That the toughest part of lives on in every shred
Of This Old Grey [G]Coat.[C]  [G]  [C]

Well you can, [G]cut [B]my [Em]throat
You can, [G]sink [B]my [Em]boat
But [A]you can [B]never [C]stop This Old [C#m]Grey Coat.[D]

When my [G]bones [B]do [Em]toll
When that's, [G]all [B]she [Em]wrote
[A]I'll fight [B]on in[C]side This Old [C#m]Grey Coat.[D]
Chorus2:
And when I [G]die in this grey [B]coat
I'm gonna [Em]march though Heaven's [A]door
I'm gonna walk up to Saint [B]Peter
And tell him, [C]send me back for [D]more
Cause I'll be [G]damn if I'll just [B]sit around
Why [Em]you boys win the [A]war
Cause even, [G]when [B]I'm [Em]dead
Shot full of, [G]Yank[B]ee's [Em]lead
A B C C#m D (Stop)
There ain't nothin' that I'd rather wear instead
Than This Old Grey [G]Coat.[C]

This Old Grey [G]Coat [C]
I'll go [G]down [C]
In This Old Grey [G]Coat [C]
This Old Grey [G]Coat.[F]  [C]  [G]
