Matthew

John Denver

 GAmDG
 I had an uncle name of Matthew...he was his father's only boy
 AmDG
Born just south of Colby, Kansas...he was his mother's pride and joy
 GCAm
   CHORUS:  Yes, and joy was just the thing he was raised on
 DGCG
   Love was just a way to live and die       
 CAm
   Gold was just a windy Kansas wheat field
 DCG
   Blue was just a Kansas summer sky    
 AmDG
And all the stories that he told me back when I was just a lad
 AmDG
All the memories that he gave me...all the good times that he had
 AmDG
Growin' up a Kansas farmboy...life was mostly havin' fun
 AmDG
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun
CHORUS
 AmDG
Well, I guess there were some hard times and I'm told some years were lean
 AmDG
They had a storm in '47...twister came and stripped 'em clean
 AmDG
He lost the farm and lost his family...he lost the wheat, he lost his home
 AmDG
But he found the family bible and faith as solid as a stone
CHORUS
 AmDG
So he came to live at our house...and he came to work the land
 AmDG
He came to ease my daddy's burdens and he came to be my friend
 AmDG
So I wrote this down for Matthew...it's for him this song is sung
 AmDG
Ridin' on his daddy's shoulders behind a mule, beneath the sun
CHORUS 2X
