INTRO:  A

VERSE ONE
A                                        D
Been having a ball since I was a boy in Beaumont.
  E                   E7              A   E7
I loved that town but I just couldn't stay.
A                               D    (D-D#-E7)
Two-stepped all the way to Ama-rillo,  slide
E7                         A  
Shuffled my way into Santa Fe.

A       F#m              E              D              
I  just  had  to see the sun set out in Frisco.
    F#m             D                  E   E7(STOP)
The Golden Gate is great, but it ain't home.
NC              A -A/A (STOP)
Give me a rodeo.


CHORUS
NC           D                         A
Blame it on Texas,...Don't blame it on me.
  E                  E7                    A
I am what I am,..And that's what I'm gonna be.
D                                       A         D  (STOP)
You can say what you wanna say,...About my in-san-ity.
            E7   (E7-Eb7-E7) E7                A
Blame it on Texas,.(slide)...Don't blame it on me.


INSTRUMENTAL TURNAROUND

    E7 -A

VERSE TWO
A                              D
Met a girl out in eastern Okla-homa.
    E           E7            A
Her daddy was a Tulsa million-aire.
     A                                   D
With miles and miles of oil wells, he'd leave her.
     E7                                A
Well all a man could want was waiting there.


         F#m                  E          D
But one  night while she lay sleeping, I slipped away.
     F#m             D                E  E7(STOP)
Like  no  man in his right mind would do.
NC             A -  A/A
Call me a fool


CHORUS REPEAT
NC          D                          A
Blame it on Texas,...Don't blame it on me.
  E                   E7                    A
I am what I am,...And that's what I'm gonna be.
D                                      A         D (STOP)
You can say what you wanna say,..About my in-san-ity.
            E     (E-Eb7-E7) E7                A
Blame it on Texas,.(slide)...Don't blame it on me.

TAGG 
A                                    A7        D  (STOP)
You can say what you wanna say,About my in-san-ity
             E     
Blame it on Texas
E7                A (notes A-C#-D-D#-E  E-D-C#-A) A

This is a good song, and from what I can tell this is accurate. I just don't know what you mean in the first verse when you have that D-D#-E7 slide. Will you please explain what you mean?
