Scotty McCreery - That Old King James


Intro:  D  Bm  G  A


Verse 1:
D                            Bm
Preacher gave it to him when he was eight
                    F#m                         G
That Sunday morning he got saved in that little church
D                      Bm 
Grandaddy totted it to Bible school
                   F#m
I bet back then it looked brand new
            G             Em
not a faded word, now the cover's torn
        G                      D
and the leather's worn on that Old King James


Chorus 1:
   Bm
He took it with him overseas
F#m
England, France and Germany
G                            D
Right there in the middle of hell
Bm
Said he read it every night
   F#m
He swore that it saved his life
    Em                               A
His only hope when there was no hope left
            G   A    D     
Was in that Old King James


D  Bm  G


Verse 2:
Passed it down to Momma on the day he died
Sat there for the longest time just gathering the dust                                
But when life would take a sharp turn every now and then
And she would just start missing him, I'd see her pick it up
Now the cover's torn
and the leather's worn on that Old King James


Chorus 2:
You'll find on every other page
Yellow lines or tear drop stains
Every chapter of that good book
Been through cancer, war and crazy kids
All the stupid things I did
I may never know the toll I took on her
And that Old King James


D Bm G D A Bm F#m G D A


Verse 3:
Yeah I'm the one who's got it now
She said read it when you're feeling down
And I said, "Yes Ma'am"
Now the cover's torn
And the leather's worn on that Old King James


Bm  G  D
