Elisabeth  Billy Gilman

Capo 4
This is the easy way to play this.
You can capo on 1 and play in the key of F
[D]Namesake to Elisabeth, her [Bm7]daddy's pride and joy
[G]Baptized in her mama's tears soon after she was born
'Cause the [D]doctor said she'd never live to [Bm7]see her sweet sixteen
It's a [G]miracle she [D]beat those odds and there's [G]still no promise she will see tom[Em]orrow
It makes me wonder how [B]life can give som[A]eone so much and [G]take so much away
Oh, [D]Elisabeth,[Bm7] you're a teacher you're a [G]saint
And [A]I'm so glad you [G]came to us
[D]Elisabeth,[Bm7] you make the world a better [G]place
With the [Bm]kindness of your [A]smile and your [E7]love
And your [G]beauty will live on and on, Elisa[D]beth
She might not ever marry or hold a baby of her own
Things we all take for granted are the things she may never know
But she believes there's always hope and that's all she really has
So she walks through life with passion and with dignity and class
And when she cries, she cries in silence but never for herself
She cries for everybody else, for everybody else
