This is my first tab.  Hopefully it's pretty close.  Suggestions are welcome.

Capo 2

Intro:
Cadd9 	 G    Cadd9 	 G   2X


Verse 1:

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

 	 Cadd9     G 	 Cadd9 	      G
Singin' amazing grace how sweet the sound
  Cadd9 	  	 G 	   Cadd9 	  	 G
That saved a wretch like me

 	     Cadd9 	   G 	  	 D 	    G
He carried candy for the kids in his Sunday dress coat
 	  	 Cadd9 	      G 	  	  	 D 	  	     G
He'd take me fishin' after church and taught me things I needed to know
 	   Cadd9 	  	    G 	  	 D 	  	 G
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 grandkid



Chorus:
 	     Am                G 	             D 	  	 G
And today he joined up with Jesus wearin' shiny pearl snaps
 	 Am 	       G 	  	  	    D 	  	 Dsus2
We sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played taps
 	 Am 	  	 G 	       D 	  	  	 Em
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down a street paved with gold
 	 Cadd9 	       G 	  	     D 	  	  	        Cadd9 	 G 	 Cadd9 	 G
Showin' off his brand-spankin' new wings and his barbed wire halo


Verse 2:
 	      Cadd9 	 G 	 D 	  	 G
He married sweet Emma Grace before the war was through
     Cadd9 	     G 	  	    D 	    G 	 
She held his right arm next to his anchor tattoo
 	    Cadd9 	 G 	  	 D 	      G
He was on a ship off at sea when she died in child birth 
     Cadd9  	     G 	  	    D 	  	    G
He lost his whole world from the far side of the earth

 	 Cadd9 	       G 	  	 D 	  	 G
He lost the will to love, he lost the will to live
Cadd9 	   	 G 	  	 D 	 G
Until he met a man who taught him to forgive
        Cadd9  	  	  	   G 	  D 	  	 G
Yeah, life took him to hell and back to hell and back a time or two
 	    Cadd9 	      G 	  	      D 	  	 G
But in the end he beat the devil til he was black and blue

 	   Cadd9 	     G 	     Cadd9 	  	 G 	 
Singin' I once was lost, but now I'm found
  Cadd9 	      G 	       Cadd9 	 G 	  	  	 
Was blind, but now I see


Chorus:
 	     Am                G 	             D 	  	 G
And today he joined up with Jesus wearin' shiny pearl snaps
 	 Am 	       G 	  	  	    D 	  	 Dsus2
We sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played taps
 	 Am 	  	 G 	       D 	  	  	 Em
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down a street paved with gold
 	 Cadd9 	       G 	  	     D 	  	  	        Cadd9 	 G 	 Cadd9 	 G
Showin' off his brand-spankin' new wings and his barbed wire halo

Cadd9 	   G 	    D 	     G

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


 	     Am                G 	             D 	  	 G
Cause today he joined up with Jesus wearin' shiny pearl snaps
 	 Am 	       G 	  	  	    D 	  	 Dsus2
We sang a few gospel hymns and then the soldier played taps
 	 Am 	  	 G 	       D 	  	  	 Em
I bet he's walkin' with Pete down a street paved with gold
     Cadd9 	    G 	  	   	 D 	  	  	        
Yeah sure as the old church bell still rings 
 	 Cadd9 	  	 G 	    Cadd9
He always said he had country and soul
 	    Cadd9 	   G 	  	   D 	  	  	   Cadd9 	  	 G
He's showin' off his brand-spankin' new wings and his barbed wire halo
Cadd9 	     G 	   Cadd9 	  	 G 	 D 	  	  	 
Sweet chariot comin' forth to carry me home
Cadd9 	 G   Cadd9     G 	     Cadd9         G 	   G
Swing low sweet chariot comin' forth to carry me home
