Randy Travis
Don't Ever Sell Your Saddle
from "Inspirational Journey"
2000 Warner Brothers Records, Inc.
tabbed by Kyle Vanover - kylevanover@hotmail.com

INTRO:
F#m  E  D  F#m  E  A

VERSE:
E
Daddy shoulda been a preacher man
            A                       E
'Cause everybody loved to hear him speak
E
He didn't always follow his own advice
       A                   E
But we got a sermon every week
           F#              D
He'd say, "Trouble always starts as fun,"
      A                         E
And, "Broken hearts will always mend."
       F#m                      D
"Tough times don't last, tough people do,"
      A                         E
And, "Nothin' breaks if it can bend."

CHORUS:
                       D
"Don't ever sell your saddle."
                    A
"Never owe another man."
        Bm                  E
"Watch where you spit on a windy day."
            A
"Don't use words you can't understand."
                           D
"Find the Lord before you need him."
                       F#m
And, "Never lose your pride."
                       Bm     F#m
"Don't ever sell your saddle,
        D        E          A
'Cause life's a long, long ride."

VERSE:
E  A  E  A
Daddy never ran from anything
        A                     E
Always took his share of the blame
       E                 
Had a heart big enough to fill a valley up
     A                     E
But hard enough to stop a train
          F#m              D
He said, "Only fight when you have to,
                A               E
'Cause there's always a faster gun."
             F#m                 D
And, "You'll know a hero from a coward
          A                  E
When you see which way they run."

CHORUS:
                       D
"Don't ever sell your saddle."
                    A
"Never owe another man."
        Bm                  E
"Watch where you spit on a windy day."
            A
"Don't use words you can't understand."
                           D
"Find the Lord before you need him."
                       F#m
And, "Never lose your pride."
                       Bm     F#m
"Don't ever sell your saddle,
        D        E          A
'Cause life's a long, long ride."

BRIDGE:
G             D/F#                A                 E
Daddy left me his old saddle the day that he passed on
     G                       D/F#         E
And these words are etched into my mind, just as they were in stone

CHORUS:
                       D
"Don't ever sell your saddle."
                    A
"Never owe another man."
        Bm                  E
"Watch where you spit on a windy day."
            A
"Don't use words you can't understand."
                           D
"Find the Lord before you need him."
                       F#m
And, "Never lose your pride."
                       Bm     F#m
"Don't ever sell your saddle,
        D        E          A
'Cause life's a long, long ride."

OUTRO:
                      Bm     F#m
Don't ever sell your saddle,
         D       E          A  D  A
'Cause life's a long, long ride.
