We Bleed Maroon chords - Granger Smith

Granger Smith Lyrics


            Capo on 2nd Fret

            D                    Bm
There's a place in my heart, a spirit ne'er be told.
           A                            G
A little town on the Brazos, a little ring made of gold.
    D                    Bm         A                     G
I carry it with me, wherever I go, just to remember the times.

      D                             Bm
We learned some from books, and a whole lot from livin'.
     A                           G
And we etched our names on the wood at the Chicken.
    D                      Bm
I still hear the sound of spurs on the concrete.
     A                           G                      A
And that ol' train whistle blowing through the trees.

CHORUS
------
           G            D         A            D
So put a penny on ol' Sully, and wish me some luck.
      G            D             A
And yell farmers fight when our boys are backed up.
             G             D            A        Bm
Throw your arms around each other and sing Hullabaloo. G D A D Cause that's what we do when we bleed maroon. D Bm Midnight at Duncan, they still light the torches. A G And Reveille still barks at the Cav on their horses. D Bm I've seen 80,000 to the power of 12. A G It doesn't matter who comes to town, we still give them hell. D Bm And I was there at the stack on November 18th. A G With logs on the ground I fell down on my knees. D Bm But we would not forget the 12 that we lost. A G A So we carved their names right there in the rock. CHORUS ------ D Bm And there late at night if I listen real close. A G The spirit still whispers through the crooked live oaks. D Bm And I hear my father and his dad before. A G A And all those brave Aggies that never came back from war. CHORUS ------ G D A Bm And say 'here' for me at muster when my time comes too. G D A D cause that's what we do when we bleed maroon. G D A D Yeah, that's what we do when we bleed maroon... CHORUS ------ [Thanks to Ryan Hutson for tabs]
