Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

San Antonio Stroll-crd  Tanya Tucker

[G]When I was a child down in [A]South Caroline
Soon's the [C]Saturday [D]sun went on [G]down[D]
My folks and [G]sister would go and leave me [A]home all alone
Going [C]to that big [D]square dance in [G]town
Well my [Em]old radio would play that [Bm]old opry show
So I [Am]never got [D]lonesome or [G]blue
I'd fall as[Em]leep in my chair and dream that[Bm] I was right there
Just [Am]singing the [A]whole night t[D]hrough
When my [G]folks would come home
They'd be [A]humming a song
Mama'd [C]smile and say, "C[D]hild, don't you [Em]know,
there ain't a [C]thing in this world to make you
[G]fall in love [Em]girl, like the [A]San An[D]tonio [G]Stroll[D]"
Same as intro, except twice--- A, B, D, E, A, E
Well the [G]day finally come when my [A]mama said, hun
It's 'bout [C]time you came [D]with us as [G]well[D]
Well I [G]had me a time, yes I d[A]anced all the night
Til they [C]rang that ol' [D]crack-midnight [G]bell
Then the [Em]lights went down low
The fiddler [Bm]picked up his bow
And he [Am]played something [D]steady and [G]slow
And my [Em]sister Irene and her [Bm]husband to be
They held [Am]hands and be[A]gan to s[D]troll
I've been a[G]way for a while, but it [D]still brings a smile
When I [C]think of the [D]way that it [Em]goes
Now I'll [C]sing it to you just so we [G]both can [Em]do
That old [A]San An[D]tonio [G]Stroll[D]
(instrumental--exactly like intro, except twice. Also, for the
mandolin, instead of ending on the note A, end on F#)
(chords for instrumental are: A, B, D, E, A, E, A, B, D, E, F#m)
Yes I'll [C]sing it to you just so we [G]all can [Em]do
That old [A]San An[D]tonio [G]Stroll
Outro: Same as intro. Chords: A, B, D, E, A
