Baptism
Performed by Kenny Chesney and Randy Travis
Written by Mickey Cates
Album: Everywhere We Go
Transcribed by Lee Boruchow

Note:  This is the way the song is done on the recording. To play it
exactly, drop the sixth string to a D and then capo on the second fret. This
changes the chord configurations slightly, as noted at the bottom of the
file.

DADGBE		Capo II

Intro - D Bm7 G A (twice)

{D} The summer {Bm7} breeze made {G} ripples on the {A} pond
{D} Rattled through the {Bm7} reeds and the {G} willow trees {A} beyond
{Bm7} Daddy in his {A} good hat {G} momma in her Sunday {D} dress
{G} Watched with pride as I {D} stood there in the {G} water up to my {D}
chest

{F}Preacher spoke {Bm7} about the cleansing {D} blood
And I {G} sank my {D/F#} toes into that {Em} east Tennessee {A} mud

Chorus:
{D} Then it was down with {Bm7} the old man
{G} Up {A} with the {D} new
{G} Raised to {D/F#} walk in the way of {Em} light and {A} truth
{Bm7} Didn't see no {G} angels, just a {D/F#} few saints on the {G}shore
{D} But I felt like a {A/C#} new born {Bm7} baby {A}
Cradled up {G} in the {A} arms of the {D} Lord

Intro (once)

{D} Amazing {Bm7} grace {G} oh how sweet the {A} sound
There was {D} glory in the {Bm7} air, there was {G} dinner on the {A} ground
{Bm7} My sins which were {A} many where {G} washed away and {D} gone
{G} Along with a buffalo {D} nickel I {G} forgot to {A} leave it {D} home

{F} That seems like {Bm7} such a small small {D} price to pay
For the {G} blessed {D/F#} peace of mind {Em} that came to me that {A} day

Repeat Chorus

{F} This road is long and {Em} dusty
Sometimes a {A} soul it {A/C#} must be {D} cleansed
And I {F} long to feel that {Em} water
{G} Rushing over me {A} again

{D} Then it was down with {Bm7} the old man
{G} Up {A} with the {D} new
{G} Raised to {D/F#} walk in the way of {Em} light and {A} truth
{Bm7} Didn't see no {G} angels, just a {D/F#} few saints on the {G}shore
{D} But I felt like a {A/C#} new born {Bm7} baby {A}
Cradled up {G} in the {A} arms of the {Bm7} Lord {A}
{D} I felt like a {A/C#} new born {Bm7} baby {A}
Cradled up {G} in the {A} arms of the {D} Lord

Intro (once)
