Baptism  Kenny Chesney

This is how I think this song should be played. I noticed some
discrepancies on the entries existing in the archives now. Maybe this
will help.
[D]The summer breeze, made ripples on the [G]pond
[D]and rattled through the reeds and[Bm] the willow trees[G] beyond[A]
[Bm]Daddy in his good[F#] hat, mama i[G]n her Sunday dress[D]
[G] [D] [G] [A] 
[D]watched with pride, as I stood there in the water up to my chest
C/G (step down Bass) D
And the preacher spoke about the cleansing blood
[G]and I sank my toes i[G/F#]nto that east Ten[Em]nessee mud[A]
(CHORUS) Then it w[D]as down with the old man[A]
[G]Up with the new[D]
[G]Raised to walk[G/F#] in the way of light and[Em] truth[A]
[Bm]Didn't see no ang[G]els, just a few sai[D]nts on the shore[G]
But I fe[D]lt like a new[Bm]born baby[G-G/F#]
cradled up in [Em]the arms o[A]f the Lord[D]
[D]Amazing Grace, Oh how sw[G]eet the sound[A]
[D]There was glory in the air, ther[Bm]e was dinner on t[G]he ground[A]
[Bm]My sins which were many, we[F#]re washed away a[G]nd gone[D]
[G]Along with the buffalo nickel, [D]I forgot to le[G]ave at [A]home[D]
C/G (step down bass) D
That seems like such a small small price to pay
[G]For the blessed peace o[G/F#]f mind, that came to me t[Em]hat day[A]
C/G (bass down)
This road is long and dusty
sometimes a soul it [G]must be [A]cleansed[D]
C/G (bass down)
And I long to feel that water
rushing over[G] me again[A]
[D]Down with the old ma[A]n, Up with th[G]e new[D]
[G]Raised to walk[D] in the way of light and [A]truth
[Bm]didn't see no ang[G]els, just a few sai[D]nts on the shore[G]
But I fe[D]lt like a new[Bm]born Baby[G-G/F#]
cradled up in [Em]the arms o[A]f the Lord[Bm]
Yes I fel[D]t like a new [Bm]born Baby[G-G/F#]
cradled up in[Em] the arms o[A]f the Lord[D]
