Aaron Watson
Barbed Wire Halo

Capo 2 

Cadd9            G 	    cadd9 	     G        
Well God blessed Texas and deacon Shackelford
            Cadd9        G             Cadd9           G
He read the Bible seven times, and he believed every word
        Cadd9            G        Cadd9             G
That old beat up leather book had been through it all
       Cadd9         G              Cadd9         G
He sat on the back pew, so he could chew him a chaw

Cadd9            G
Singing Amazing Grace
Cadd9            G
How sweet the sound
Cadd9        D         Cadd9
That saved a wrech like me


He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
he took me fishing after church and taught me things I needed to know
no deacon didn't have a family, Lord knows he wished he did
          Cadd9         G             D             G
He told the whole congregation that I was his grand kid


Chorus  
              Am            G              D             G
And today he joined up with Jesus wearing shiney pearl snaps
           Am          G                   D              
we sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played tapps
           Am           G            D                Em
I bet he's walking with Pete down a street paved with gold
       Am              G            D                          Cadd9
showing off his brand spanking new wings and his barbed wire halo


He married sweet Ema Graves before the war was through
She held his right arm next to his anchor tattoo
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth
He lost his world from the far side of the earth

He lost the will to love he lost the will to live
until he met a man that taught him to forgive
yea life took him to hell and back to hell and back a time or two
but in the end he beat the devil until he was black and blue

singing I once was lost 
but now I'm found
was blind but now I see

chorus

         Cadd9            G                 D          G
Before he went he made me promise him that I wouldn't cry
             Cadd9             G
And though I told him that I wouldn't 
            D                 G
You know I couldn't help but lie


chorus

And today he joined up with Jesus wearing shiney pearl snaps

we sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played tapps

I bet he's walking with Pete down a street paved with gold
     Am           G                  D
As sure as the ol church bell still rings
          Am          G                D
He always said he had country in his soul
             Am               G           D                       Cadd9
He's showing off his brand spanking new wings and his barbed wire halo
G    Cadd9   G   Cadd9          G          D
sweet chariot   coming for to carry me home
     Cadd9  G     Cadd9    G    Cadd9          D        G
Swing low      sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home
