Texas When I Die

(chorus)
5 -5 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5
When I die I may not go to heaven
5 6 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
I don’t know if they let cowboys in
5 6 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5 4
If they don’t just let me go to Texas, Boy!
5 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
Texas is as close as I’ve been.

5 6 6 6 6 5 -4 4 -5
New York couldn’t hold my attention
-6 6 -5 -5 5 -5 5 -4 4
Detroit City couldn’t sing my song
5 6 6 6 6 6 -6 6 5 -4 -4 -5
If tomorrow finds me busted flat in Dallas
-6 6 -5 -5 -5 -5 -4 4 -4 4
I won’t care, ’cause at least I’ll know I’m home.

(chorus)
5 -5 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5
When I die I may not go to heaven
5 6 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
I don’t know if they let cowboys in
5 6 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5 4
If they don’t just let me go to Texas, Boy!
5 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
Texas is as close as I’ve been.

5 6 6 6 6 -6 6 5 -4 4 -5
I’d ride through all of Hell and half of Texas
-6 6 -5 -5 -5 -5 4 -4 4 -5 -4 4
Just to hear Willie Nelson sing a country song
5 6 6 6 -6 6 5 -4 4 -5
Beer just ain’t as cold in old Milwaukee
-6 6 5 -5 -5 -5 -4 4 -4 4
My body’s here, but my soul’s in San Antone.

(chorus)
5 -5 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5
When I die I may not go to heaven
5 6 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
I don’t know if they let cowboys in
5 6 6 6 6 6 -6 6 6 -5 4
If they don’t just let me go to Texas, Boy!
5 6 6 6 -4 5 -4 4
Texas is as close as I’ve been.

(chorus one last time)
