Baptism

Kenny Chesney / Randy Travis

Capo on 2nd fret


D           Bm7        G              A
The summer breeze made ripples on the pond
D                     Bm7           G              A
  Rattled through the reeds and the willow trees beyond
Bm           A         G                   D/F#
Daddy in his good hat, momma in her Sunday dress
G                       D/F#
Watched with pride as I stood there 
       G        A     D
in the water up to my chest

        C                G                   D
And the preacher spoke about the cleansing blood
G              D/F#          Em             Asus A
And I sank my toes into that east Tennessee mud

            D             Bm7
Then it was down with the old man,
G  A        D
 Up with the new
G           D/F#               Em        Asus A
  Raised to walk in the way of light and truth
Bm              G
I didn't see no angels
       D/F#              G
Just a few saints on the shore
  D           D/Db    Bm   Bm/A
I felt like a newborn baby
        G         A           D
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

D        Bm7   G                A
Amazing Grace, oh how sweet the sound
D                        Bm7
  There was glory in the air,
          G             A
there was dinner on the ground
   Bm              A          G               D/F#
My sins which were many, were washed away and gone
 G                   D/F#
Along with a buffalo nickle,
     G      A        D
I forgot to leave at home

     C                  G                     D
That seemed like such a small small price to pay
G               D/F#
For the blessed peace of mind,
     Em              Asus A
that came to me that day

       D             Bm7
It was down with the old man,
G   A         D
  Up with the new
G           D/F#               Em        Asus A
  Raised to walk in the way of light and truth
Bm                G
  I didn't see no angels
       D/F#              G
Just a few saints on the shore
      D           D/Db    Bm  Bm/A
But I felt like a newborn baby
        G         A           D
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

     C                G
This road is long and dusty
            Em      A       D
Sometimes a soul it must me cleansed
      C                 G
And I long to feel that water
Em              Asus A
Rushing over me again

 D            Bm7    G  A         D
Down with the old man up with the new
G           D/F#               Em        Asus A
  Raised to walk in the way of light and truth
Bm            G              D/F#              G
Didn't see no angels, just a few saints on the shore
  D           D/Db    Bm   Bm/A
I felt like a newborn baby
        G         A           Bm    E
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

  D           D/Db    Bm   Bm/A
I felt like a newborn baby
        G         A           D
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

what chord is D/Db and Bm/A
-dixieredneck014 | 3/21/2004
They're being used as walk down chords,
Db being used as bass for the D, and
A used as a bass for the Bm
Db....x4x232
Bm/A...x04432
