AMARILLO BY MORNING- GEORGE STRAIT
TRANSCRIBED BY rpovin
----------------------------------

NOTES: 
1) "x2" means chord lasts for 2 beats, "x4" = 4 beats

2) Any chord listed without any "x2", or similar, lasts one beat
   e.g.: "D, F#min" means D gets one beat, then F#min gets one beat.

3) This chord chart is submitted as a corrected version of the chart
currently available in the COWPIE ARCHIVE. Look at the turnaround
section before the 3rd verse: I contend the harmonic structure is
based on a F#min7 -> B, the ii -> V chords in the key of Emaj. Emaj
is exactly where the key in the song lands at the 3rd verse. This is
a standard ii, V, --> I turnaround.
       F#min7, B, --> Emaj

   Amarillo     by    mornin'     up from San Antone

Amarillo by mornin' Amarillo's on my mind


VERSE #2
   They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Sante Fe
   Lost my wife and a girlfriend somewhere along the way

Amarillo by mornin' Amarillo I'll be there
Amarillo by mornin' Amarillo's on my mind


VERSE #3
   Amarillo    by     mornin'     up from San Antone
   Everything that I got is       just what I got on
   I ain't got a dime but what I got is mine
   I ain't rich but Lord I'm free

CHORUS #3
Amarillo by mornin' Amarillo I'll be there
Amarillo by mornin' Amarillo's on my mind
