He walked on water  Randy Travis

1. He wore sta[D]rched white shirts [G/D]buttoned at the neck,
and he'd [D]sit in the shade and watch the [A/E]chickens peck.
And his te[D]eth were gone, but [G/D]what the heck,
[D]I thought that [A]he walked on [D]water.[G] [A]
2. He [D]said he was a cowboy [G]when he was young.
He could h[D]andle a rope and he was g[A]ood with a gun.
And [D]my mama's daddy was his ol[G]dest son,--
and [D]I thought that [A]he walked on [D]water.
If the story's told,[G]  only heaven knows.[D]
But his hat seemed to [A]me like an old ha[D]lo.
[D7]  And although his wings,[G]  they were never seen.
I thought that [A]he walked on [D]water.[G/A] [A/C#]
3. Then [D]he tied a cord to the [G]end of a mop,
and said, "[D]Son, here's a pony, k[A]eep her at a trot."
And [D]I'd ride in circles while he laughed[G]  alot.
Then [D]I'd flop do[A]wn bes[D]ide him.
And he was [Bm]ninety years old in [A]sixty-three
and [G]I loved him and [A]he loved me.
And l[G]ord, I cried the day[A]  he died,
       [D]               [A]             [D] 'cause I thought that he walked on water.
