Name On A Stone by John Corbett


D  A  Bm G 

D                               G
It was just me and the preacher standing in the rain

    D              A            G          
The day we laid my daddy in the ground.

   D                               G
We waited for his friends to show, nobody came

      D                  A              D        
So we said a prayer and headed back to town.

    A                        Bm
And I thought about him, how sad his life had been

  G                                   D 
I swore that someday I'd do something worth remembering


      G                           D                    
I'd be more than just a name on a stone

 G                           Bm
More than just a box full of bones.

    G                              D       A
I want someone to miss me when I'm gone

              G                        D 
I want to be more than just a name on a stone.

D A  Bm G 
D                                         G
I wanna pick the Wildwood Flower, catch a baseball in the stands

                   A                     G
Learn to tell some jokes and make folks laugh

D                                     G
I wanna find the perfect woman, wanna sail a boat to France

                     A                  D
Throw caution to the wind and not look back.

          A                      Bm
I wanna make a million memories, make a million friends 

 G                                                D
And have 'em gather all around me when my journey ends

(back to chorus)                                                                           
           A                             Bm
I wanna be more than just a guy, who never lived, then he died, with
nothing to show 

         G                             Bm
But some dates above a grave, that the years have washed away 

          A                D           
Don't you know, don't you know I want to be

(back to chorus)

 A              G       
I want to be more than just a name 

   A                              D   
Much more than just a name on a stone.
 A        Bm     G 
Name on a stone

D  A  Bm G
