The Way He Was Raised  Josh Turner

Intro: G C G Cioi
[G]He always wore those worn out flip-flops
[Em]Spent hours in his Daddy's workshop
[C]He loved being on the water
Fishing with His fri[G]ends[(C] [G)]
[G]He always listened to the old folks
[Em]When they'd tell stories and crack jokes
[C]Didn't talk back to his Mama
When she got onto H[G]im
Oh, th[C]at's just the way He was raised
Had to f[G]inish all His c[D/F#]hores 'fore He could [Em]go outside and play
they [C]always went to c[G6]hurch that's were[Asus2] he learned how to pr[A]ay
And th[C]at's just the w[D]ay He was r[G]aised
[G]He grew His hair out when He got older
[Em]Grew it clear down to His shoulders
[C]Started hanging with the outcasts
When He went off to t[G]own[(C] [G)]
[G]Some called Him a troublemaker
[Em]Even some said a lawbreaker
[C]No matter how they talked about Him
He never put nobody d[G]own
Chorus 2:
'Cause th[C]at's just the way He was raised
When p[G]eople start to g[D/F#]ossip, [Em]He'd just walk away
He [C]always loved his n[G6]eighbor no m[Asus2]atter what they'd s[A]ay
Oh, th[C]at's just the w[D]ay He was r[G]aised
On a cr[C]oss, on a h[A7sus4]ill
That l[C]onghaired boy was k[G]illed
All our s[C]ins washed a[A7sus4]way
When He w[C]alked out of that gr[D]ave
C C *(optional progression) D
Oh, that's just the way He was raised
there's n[G]o way we can m[D/F#]easure
The [Em]sacrifice He made
He kn[C]ew He had t[G6]o die
For our [Asus2]debt to be p[A]aid
Oh, th[C]at's just the w[D]ay He was r[Em]aised
It t[C]ook the hand of G[G6]od to [Asus2]roll the stone [A]away
And th[C]at's just the w[D]ay He was r[G]aised
Yeah, th[C]at's just the w[D]ay He was r[G]aised
