Mary and Joseph (as sung by Tim Mcgraw)
Capo 4th fret
rubbertoe

I like this song, and I couldn't find the chords anywhere, 
so here they are as well as I could figure them out.   
This is just how i decided to vary the chords, 
because I think it sounds good.  
you can play it with just regular C, F, and Am chords). 
Replace all the C variations with C, F variations with F 
Replace Am with the Asus4 and Dsus2 chords.  

C:        032010                
CaddG:    032013
F:        xx3211
Fadd9:    xx3213
Am:       002210                
Asus4:    002230
Cmaj7:    032000
Cadd9:    032030
Csus2:    030010        
Dsus2:    000230

About a mile from Olive park 
C              Am                  F
Quiet boy, he never had much to say

On a midnight there in the middle of May

But there was nowhere left to stay

So in a barn she gave birth

The story's too long to tell 
F                                       Fadd9
But He walked on water and lived through hell 
C                   Am              Csus2  C
Killed on a cross and rose from the grave
