Barbed Wire Halo  Aaron Watson

Capo 2
Cadd9 G cadd9 G
Well God blessed Texas and deacon Shackelford
He read the [Cadd9]Bible seven t[G]imes, and he b[Cadd9]elieved every wo[G]rd
That old[Cadd9] beat up leather [G]book had [Cadd9]been through it al[G]l
He sat [Cadd9]on the back pe[G]w, so he could [Cadd9]chew him a cha[G]w
[Cadd9]Singing Amazing G[G]race
[Cadd9]How sweet the sou[G]nd
[Cadd9]That saved a [D]wrech like[Cadd9] me
He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
he took me fishing after church and taught me things I needed to know
no deacon didn't have a family, Lord knows he wished he did
He told th[Cadd9]e whole congre[G]gation that I [D]was his grand [G]kid
And today he j[Am]oined up with [G]Jesus wearing s[D]hiney pearl sn[G]aps
we sang a f[Am]ew gospel hy[G]mns and then the sol[D]dier played tapps
I bet he's [Am]walking with [G]Pete down a s[D]treet paved with [Em]gold
showing[Am] off his brand s[G]panking new w[D]ings and his barbed wire ha[Cadd9]lo
He married sweet Ema Graves before the war was through
She held his right arm next to his anchor tattoo
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth
He lost his world from the far side of the earth
He lost the will to love he lost the will to live
until he met a man that taught him to forgive
yea life took him to hell and back to hell and back a time or two
but in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue
singing I once was lost
but now I'm found
was blind but now I see
Before he[Cadd9] went he made me [G]promise him that I[D] wouldn't c[G]ry
And though I [Cadd9]told him that I wo[G]uldn't
You know I c[D]ouldn't help but l[G]ie
And today he joined up with Jesus wearing shiney pearl snaps
we sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played tapps
I bet he's walking with Pete down a street paved with gold
As su[Am]re as the ol [G]church bell still r[D]ings
He always [Am]said he had [G]country in his so[D]ul
He's showing [Am]off his brand spa[G]nking new wi[D]ngs and his barbed wire [Cadd9]halo
[G]sweet[Cadd9] chariot[G] c[Cadd9]oming for to ca[G]rry me home[D]
Swing[Cadd9] low [G] swe[Cadd9]et chario[G]t, co[Cadd9]ming for to car[D]ry me hom[G]e
