CAPO: 1st FRET KEY: Bb PLAY: A
When I [A] die I may not go to [D] heaven
[A] I don't know if [E] they let cowboys [A] in
If they don't just let me go to [D] Texas, Boy!
[A] Texas is as [E] close as I've [A] been.
New York couldn't hold my at-[D] tention
[A] Detroit City [E] couldn't sing my [A] song
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in [D] Dallas
I won't [A] care, 'cause at [E] least I'll know I'm [A] home.
I'd ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
Beer just ain't as cold in old Milwaukee
My body's here, but my soul's in San Antone.
REPEAT CHORUS (FADE)
