In My Next Life  Merle Haggard

Key = C > D
 
 Intro = C - C - F - F - G7 - G7 - C - G7 

The [C]Blood Red Sun Beat Down And [F]Baked The Red Clay Ground
[G7]Dust Kicked Up Around His John Deere [C]Wheels
No Trace Of Rain In Sight A-[F]gain He'll Lose The Fight
And [G7]Have To Watch His Crops Die In The [C]Fields
They Stood There Both In Tears --- His [F]Wife Of Many Years
Said [G7]John You Know I Hate To Lose Our [C]Farm
He Looked Into Her Eyes Then [F]Looked Up At The Skies
And [G7]Told Her As He Held Her In His [C]Arms[G7]
Chorus:
In My [C]Next Life I Want To Be Your [F]Hero
Somethin'[G7] Better Than I Turned Out To [C]Be[G7]
I've Lived [C]This Life Behind The [C7]Plough And [F]Hay Row
In My [G7]Next Life I'll Make You Proud Of [C]Me[C] [F] [F] [G7] [G7]
The [C]Muscles In His Arms Just [F]Like His Run Down Farm
Soon [G7]Withered And Slowly Disap-[C]peared
One Hard Workin' Man --- [F]Two Hard Workin' Hands
Were [G7]Givin' Up After All These [C]Years[G7]
His [C]Aging Eyes Grew Dim And The [F]Lady That Worshipped Him
Sat [G7]Cryin' On A Chair Beside His [C]Bed
Her Hands Caressed His Brow And She [F]Said It's Alright Now
And [G7]As He Slowly Slipped Away He [C]Said[G7]
In My [C]Next Life I Want To Be Your [F]Hero
Somethin'[G7] Better Than I Turned Out To [C]Be[G7]
I've Lived [C]This Life Behind The [C7]Plough And [F]Hay Row
In My [G7]Next Life I'll Make You Proud Of [C]Me[A7]
In My [D]Next Life I Want To Be Your [G]Hero
Somethin'[A7] Better Than I Turned Out To [D]Be[A7]
I've Lived [D]This Life Behind The [D7]Plough And [G]Hay Row
In My [A7]Next Life I'll Make You Proud Of [D]Me
A7 D (D - A7 - D - Stop)
In My Next Life I'll Make You Proud Of Me
