Scotty McCreery: That Old King James
From The Album: Clear as Day

D Bm G A

D BmPreacher gave it to him when he was eight,
F#m GThat Sunday morning he got saved in that little church
D Bm Grandaddy totted it to Bible school
F#mI bet back then it looked brand new,
G Emnot a faded word, now the cover's torn
G Dand the leather's worn on that Old King James
BmHe took it with him overseas
F#mEngland, France and Germany
G DRight there in the middle of hell
BmSaid he read it every night
F#mHe swore that it saved his life
Em AHis only hope when there was no hope left
G A DWas in that Old King James
D Bm G
D BmPassed it down to Momma on the day he died
F#m GSat there for the longest time just gathering the dust
D Bm But when life would take a sharp turn every now and then
F#m GAnd she would just start missing him, I'd see her pick it up
EmNow the cover's torn
G Dand the leather's worn on that Old King James
Bm You'll find on every other page
F#mYellow lines or tear drop stains
G DEvery chapter of that good book
BmBeen through cancer, war and crazy kids
F#mAll the stupid things I did
Em AI may never know the toll I took on her
G A DAnd that Old King James
D Bm G D A Bm F#m G D A
D BmYeah I'm the one who's got it now
F#mShe said read it when you're feeling down
GAnd I said, "Yes Ma'am"
EmNow the cover's torn
G DAnd the leather's worn on that Old King James
Bm G D
