The Weight Of The Badge
George Strait

                D                           G
It's gonna be a long one, another graveyard shift
               Bm                   A
As he says goodbye to his wife and kids
              Bm                 G
He spends his life just like his dad's
         D             A             D
Driving away under the weight of the badge

             D             G
He's seen it all in his 15 years
             Bm                A
Watching our backs, facing our fears
              Bm            D
Lord knows it ain't no easy task
           D              A             D
Keepin' us safe under the weight of the badge

              C                   G
He swore that oath to protect and serve
                    D                    A
Pours his heart and soul into both those words
         C           G
Lays his life on the line
            D              A
The line he walks is razor fine
         Bm                 G
Tempered strength is always tough
                   D
But he ain't gonna buckle
A                       D
Under the weight of the badge

Bm
Not that long ago he woke up in the hospital
         D                            A
With his wife and kids praying by his bed
            Bm
He said I'm gonna be alright, 

there's just sometimes you gotta fight 
        D                               A
And the truth is nothing truer could be said
            D                  G
I do it for us and I do it for them
                  D      A                       D
And I ain't gonna buckle under the weight of the badge

lead  D  C  G  D   A

C          G             D                          
It doesn't weigh a lot until you put it on
                        C
And the weight of it is staggering
          G
Then duty calls each time
   D               
He knows he's got to answer
         C
And it's all in the hand of
    D     A             D
The heavy weight of the badge

                   A
And he ain't gonna buckle
          G             D
Under the weight of the badge
                  A
No he ain't gonna buckle
          G             D
Under the weight of the badge
