Josh Turner - I Was There

Intro

C  Em7  Am7  Am/F Am7

Verse 1:

C                          Cmaj9            
I was there that night in Bethlehem
         Am                     Em                  F       G 
And when Neil and the boys came to the moon in that tin can
   C           Cmaj9           Am7/G
At Gettysburg, Omaha beach, in Vietnam
        Am               Em           F       G
I heard every soldier's cry and mom's prayer
        C  Cmaj9
I was there

C                               Cmaj9   
I was there when you took your first breath
              Am             Em                        F              G         
And when you lit that stolen Lucky Strike and like the choke to death
              C             Cmaj9           
When you were waist deep in Carter's Creek
    Am7/G                    Am                    Em                 F   G                
And preacher John dunked you down in the water and raised you up for air
        C   Cmaj9
I was there

Chorus:

Am
I'm always around
      G           
I was then and I am now
    C              Cmaj9    Am       G 
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Am
When a road comes to an end
    G
I'm where you start again
    C               Cmaj9     Dm
I'm never farther than a word away
                     G
You've always got a friend

Verse 2:

          C                     Cmaj9                   
When your grandma passed, I was in that house
              Am                   Em                   F          G
And when your grandpa ran down the street to go to show her around
        C     Cmaj9  
I was there

Am F C Cmaj9 Dm G


Chorus:

Am
I'm always around
      G
I was then and I am now
    C             Cmaj9      Am    G
And I'll be here when tomorrow comes
       Am 
When a road comes to an end
    G
I'm where you start again
    C               Cmaj9       Dm
I'm never farther than a word away
                      G
You've always got a friend

Verse 3:

C                          Cmaj9
I was there last night on highway 9
            Am                  Em                     F         G
When you answered the phone and ran right through that stop sign
      C                    Cmaj9              Am7/G
I was in the cab, in that bigger rig, in that trucker's ear
         Am                      Em              F   G
Made him swerve to the right and miss you by a hair
        C    Cmaj9
I was there


Tag:

            Am              Em         F                G
If you're feeling alone look up on the One who answers prayers
                       C  Em7  Am7 Am/F Am7
And I'm always there
