Baptism
Kenny Chesney

This is how I think this song should be played.  I noticed some
discrepancies on the entries existing in the archives now.  Maybe this
will help.  


D                                      G
The summer breeze, made ripples on the pond
D                                Bm               G                   A
and rattled through the reeds and the willow trees beyond
Bm               F#          G                              D
Daddy in his good hat, mama in her Sunday dress
G                                 D                       G           A
D
watched with pride, as I stood there in the water up to my chest

C/G                            (step down Bass)          D
And the preacher spoke about the cleansing blood
G                   G/F#             Em                   A
and I sank my toes into that east Tennessee mud

                   D                                   A
(CHORUS)  Then it was down with the old man
G               D
Up with the new
G             G/F#                    Em       A
Raised to walk in the way of light and truth
Bm               G                   D                       G
Didn't see no angels,  just a few saints on the shore
        D            Bm         G-G/F#
But I felt like a newborn baby
              Em        A               D
cradled up in the arms of the Lord

D                       G                        A
Amazing Grace, Oh how sweet the sound
D                               Bm               G                  A
There was glory in the air, there was dinner on the ground
Bm                         F#              G                        D
My sins which were many, were washed away and gone
G                              D             G      A           D
Along with the buffalo nickel, I forgot to leave at home

C/G             (step down bass)         D
That seems like such a small small price to pay
G                      G/F#                     Em                   A
For the blessed peace of mind, that came to me that day


(CHORUS)

      C/G (bass down)
This road is long and dusty
                    G       A           D
sometimes a soul it must be cleansed
         C/G (bass down)
And I long to feel that water 
            G            A
rushing over me again

D                   A            G              D
Down with the old man, Up with the new
G             D                        A
Raised to walk in the way of light and truth 
Bm               G                  D                       G
didn't see no angels, just a few saints on the shore
        D            Bm        G-G/F#
But I felt like a newborn Baby
              Em        A               Bm
cradled up in the arms of the Lord

         D            Bm        G-G/F#
Yes I felt like a new born Baby
             Em         A              D
cradled up in the arms of the Lord
