Written by Doodle Owens & Dennis Knutson
Recorded by George Jones with Jim Lauderdale

(Capo on 3)

Intro:  (D) x 4 measures

(Verse 1)
(D)Everyone suspected ole (A)Willie's time was (D)near
'Cause (G)lately he'd been (D)talkin' 'bout the Lord & leavin' (A)here
He (D)said if I fight the devil when I (A)die I know I'll (D)lose
To (G)sing my soul to (D)Heaven 'for the (A)devil gets the (D)news

(Verse 3)
Well, (D)everybody cried when (A)poor ole Willie (D)died
And his (G)old flat top gui-(D)tar was that all Willie left be-(A)hind
They (D)took it to the graveyard when they (A)laid him down to (D)rest
(G)Someone tuned it (D)up and answered (A)Willie's last re-(D)quest

(Chorus)
The (D)Tavern choir from (G)Marvin's Bar on (D)Wine Street gathered (A)'round
They be-(D)lieve Willie's soul passed through (G)Heaven's golden gate
Be-(D)fore his (A)body touched the (D)ground
They sang “A-(D)mazing Grace, how (G)sweet the sound”
I (D)come to the garden a-(A)lone
The (D)Tavern choir from (G)Marvin's Bar 
on (D)Wine Street (A)sang ole Willie (D)home

(Verse 3)
There's an (D)ole flat top guitar on the (A)wall behind the (D)bar
And (G)somewhere there's a (D)twinkle in a far distant (A)star
Now (D)that ole Satan raised some Hell when he (A)finally got the (D)news
That the (G)only soul that (D)Willie left was on a (A)pair of his worn out (D)shoes

(Chorus)
The (D)Tavern choir from (G)Marvin's Bar on (D)Wine Street gathered (A)'round
They be-(D)lieve Willie's soul passed through (G)Heaven's golden gate
Be-(D)fore his (A)body touched the (D)ground
They sang “A-(D)mazing Grace, how (G)sweet the sound”
I (D)come to the garden a-(A)lone
The (D)Tavern choir from (G)Marvin's Bar 
on (D)Wine Street (A)sang ole Willie (D)home (D7) (G)

We be-(D)lieve they (A)sang ole Willie (D)home (D) (D) (A) (D)
