If Heaven (Wasn't So Far Away)  Rhett Akins

CAPO 3
Intro: G, Cadd9 2x
[G]Everyday I drive to work
[Cadd9]Across Flint river bridge
A [G]hundred yards from the spot
That m[Cadd9]e and Grandpa'd fish
There's a p[D/F]iece of his old fruitstand
On the [Cadd9]side of Sawmill Rd.
He'd[D/F] be there peeling peaches
If it was[Cadd9] 20 years ago
[Bm7] And what I wouldn'[Cadd9]t give
[Bm7]To ride around in that old truck with[Cadd9] him[D/F]
If[G] Heaven wasn't so far away
I'd p[Cadd9]ack up the kids and go for the day
Intr[D/F]oduce them to their grandpa
Wat[Cadd9]ch em laugh at the way he talks
[G]Find my long lost cousin John
The on[Cadd9]e we lost back in Vietnam
Sho[D/F]w him a picture of his daughter now
She[Cadd9]s a doctor and he'd be proud
And[Em7] tell em we'd be[D/F] back in a coupl[Cadd9]e days
[Em7] [D/F] [Cadd9] 
And lo[Em7]sin them wouldn't [D/F]be so hard to[Cadd9] take
D/F G INTRO
If Heaven wasn't so far away
I'd hug all three of those girls we lost
I'd find my bird dog Bo
And take him huntin one more time
I'd ask Hank why he took those pills
Back in 53'
And Janis to sing the second verse of
Me and Bobby Mcgee
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
It'd do me good just to see them smile
If Heaven wasn't so far away
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch em laugh at the way he talks
Find my long lost cousin John
The one we lost back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
Shes a doctor and he'd be proud
And tell em we'd be back in a couple days
And losin them wouldn't be so hard to take
If Heaven wasn't so far away
If H[Cadd9]eaven were only about an [D/F]hour down the road
I'd s[Cadd9]ee my family and talk to God when I[D/F] got the urge to go
I'd[Cadd9] say i'm sorry, say I love you,[D/F] say anything I meant to
say back [Cadd9]when,,,,,,,and th[D]en
[Em7]Tell em we'd be[D/F] back in a couple[Cadd9] days
In the re[Em7]arview mirror [D/F]we'd all watch em[Cadd9] wave
And los[Em7]in them wouldn't[D/F] be so hard to[Cadd9] take
If [Cadd9]Heaven wasn't so [D/F]far
If [Cadd9]Heaven wasn't so [D/F]far
Cadd9 D/F G INTRO
If Heaven wasn't so far away
